Logan Paul has stated at a press conference that he wants a PPV where he and his brother Jake Paul fight Nate Diaz and Nick Diaz in two fights on the same PPV. He said his team is already talking with Nate’s team. Nick Diaz is still under contract to UFC, so he’d have to be leaving for this to happen.
The long-tenured UFC commentator Joe Rogan recently reacted to Nate Diaz picking up a win via submission against Tony Ferguson precisely at the 2:09 mark in the fourth round. The illustrious podcaster stirred up a growing theoretical discussion of reality being a simulation after Diaz pulled off an incredible feat.
Joe Rogan opens up on Nate Diaz’s win
Nate Diaz walked away a free man after successfully fighting out his contractual obligations with the UFC. The Stockton native defeated former lightweight interim champion Tony Ferguson via guillotine choke in the fourth round of the main event of UFC 279.
The significance of Diaz finishing Ferguson precisely at the 2:09 mark stems from the American’s pride in representing his hometown. Area Code 209 is located in California and covers Stockton, Modesto, Tracy, Merced, and Turlockwas. Rogan reacted to Diaz’s spectacular victory in an Instagram post by speculating that we are living in a simulation. The concept of stimulation has fascinated intellectuals and explorers of consciousness. Simulation theory postulates that we are living in an extremely powerful computer program.
“Im starting to think that maybe we really are in a simulation. Holy sh**.”
It was announced that Diaz (20-13) would face former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson (25-7) in the main event of UFC 279 inside T-Mobile Arena. He was initially scheduled to face rising Chechen-Swedish contender Khamzat Chimaev at UFC 279 in Las Vegas, but Chimaev missed weight on Friday. It was noted that the fight was a non-title welterweight bout.
Both the fighters had a one-pound allowance, which means that the highest they could weigh at the official weigh-in was 171 pounds. Diaz, for his part, successfully made weight, coming in at 171 pounds. However, Khamzat Chimaev missed weight at the official weigh-in. ‘Borz’ weighed in at 178.5 pounds, which is a whopping 7.5 pounds above the limit for non-title welterweight bouts.
