Former UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo recently talked about the idea of free agent Nate Diaz possibly joining WWE after images of the Stockton native with ‘Triple-H’ and Stephanie McMahon surfaced on the internet. Cejudo claimed that Diaz can be a really marketable figure in the world of professional wrestling.

‘Triple C’ caught up with the Stockton bad-boy at the recently concluded ADCC Submission Fighting World Championship that took place at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Cejudo was later interviewed with MMA reporter Helen Yee after the event and spoke about Nate Diaz’s future opportunities after successfully fighting out his UFC contract. The topic of the image with ‘Triple-H’ and Stephanie McMahon popped up and Cejudo claimed that Diaz might consider a brief stint with the WWE:
“We just saw Nate Diaz too. I saw him in the restroom. He was high as a kite and so was I. And we looked at each other, he’s hilarious. Anyway, he’s looking to dabble into WWE to make money. We gotta use the brand that the UFC has given you and all these other platforms and continue to make money as an entrepreneur.”
“I think he’s an easy sell too. Let him be him, you know and just know that it’s not real.”
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.
