Firas Zahabi recently opened up on UFC star Nate Diaz stating that he does not really lose fights, rather he just runs out of time.
Diaz, who has record of 20-13 in MMA and 15-11 in UFC had previously showcased a great performance when he was able to pulloff an incredible comeback against Leon Edwards at UFC 263 earlier this month. Manny Pacquiao Reveals If Spence Fight Is Canceled
Daiz was trailing by four rounds to none but he rocked Edwards with less than a minute remaining in the fight.
Firas Zahabi opens up on Nate Diaz
During a recent Q&A on the Tristar Gym YouTube channel, Zahabi said that if he had few more minutes then he would have pulled off a win and he loses the bouts running out of time. He further added that Diaz is the ‘scariest street fighter’.
“If you put (Nate Diaz) in a fight where there is no time limit, I think he beats 99 percent of fighters. You can’t sub him. You can’t finish him. The guy doesn’t stop walking forward. He puts volume on you. He is the scariest, in my opinion, street fighter in MMA.
I think if you had to fight him in the street, man, you are in a fight for your life. Ain’t going to be no judges standing you up between rounds. There’s no judge to come and give you the win. No, no. This guy ain’t going away. I think if he had a no time limit fight with Leon Edwards, he beats Leon Edwards – and I have a tremendous admiration for Leon Edwards.”
