UFC star Valentina Shevchenko recently posted a photo showcasing her incredible physique for her fans, as seen below.
Valentina is one of UFC’s biggest PPV draws, but the second biggest in the company behind Conor McGregor is clearly Nate Diaz. The long-tenured color commentator Joe Rogan recently opened up on Nate Diaz fighting Khamzat Chimaev. The Stockton native is now set to face Chimaev at UFC 279. The event is scheduled to take place on September 10 at the T-Mobile Arena.
Joe Rogan explains
In an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast with guest Cameron Hanes, Rogan weighed in on a potential bout between Nate Diaz and ‘Borz’. According to the 54-year-old, while Diaz might be heading towards the tail-end of his MMA career, the veteran welterweight has repeatedly proven he’s still extremely dangerous and is always willing to put it all on the line:
“I don’t want to see him [Chimaev] fight Nate Diaz. I don’t really want that. The only reason I would be interested in seeing that is because, Nate Diaz will find out if you’re for real. Nate is a beast. He’s such a warrior.”
“If Nate gets paid big for that fight, if they set up a main event somewhere, Khamzat and Nate for a title elimination fight. I think if every fight went a 100 rounds, Nate would never lose.”
Rogan believes Gilbert Burns managed to push ‘Borz’ to the limit back in April. However, after Chimaev managed to grind out the victory against the very game ‘Durinho’, Rogan went on to opine that the Chechen-born Swede showed fans that he can not only thoroughly dominate his opponents, but also endure a hard-fought battle if need be:
“That fight with Gilbert Burns got a lot of people brave. A lot of people were more brave after that fight because he looked human in that fight… The thing that we learned about Khamzat in that fight is that he’s not just a hammer. He can take it too.”
