Former UFC star Nate Diaz and Laura Sanko had a hilarious interaction backstage after the culmination of the UFC 279 event.
Nate Diaz had a fun interaction with Laura Sanko
Sanko was interviewing the Stockton native when Diaz felt that the mic held by her was too close to his face. The 37-year-old stepped back a couple of times but Sanko kept bringing him forward. This led to a hilarious moment for UFC fans around the world.
Nate Diaz is no longer a UFC fighter. He 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 inside T-Mobile Arena. It has been noted that Mike Perry is in favor of fighting Nate Diaz and that might draw the latter to BKFC.
Daniel Cormier believes that Khamzat Chimaev’s missing weight turned out to be great for Nate Diaz. Giving the reason for his comments, ‘DC’ said that Diaz would have been out skilled against the Swede if the two faced off at UFC 279.
In an episode of ESPN MMA, ‘DC’ said:
“Nate Diaz not fighting Khamzat was a gift from God. Like, that is literally best case scenario for him … I will sit here and say this without a shadow of a doubt, he was going to lose to Khamzat Chimaev, and he was going to lose badly. As much as Nate dismisses the guy, he just doesn’t have the skillset to stop the guy from doing what he does.”
