GSP’s Coach Tweets A Challenge To Nate Diaz For UFC 200
Firas Zahabi has been very interested in the potential matchup between Nate Diaz and Georges St-Pierre ever since Zahabi saw the video of Diaz mentioning that he wanted to fight St-Pierre and also after seeing Diaz’s performance against Conor McGregor. Zahabi sent out a rather animated tweet about UFC 200 to Diaz.

This would be a very interesting matchup because there has never been a fighter to beat both Diaz brothers. Takanori Gomi has lost to both of them (Even though the Nick Diaz fight was later turned to a ‘No Contest’). St-Pierre would have the opportunity to be the first if he took this bout. On the other hand, Nate Diaz would have the opportunity to avenge his brother Nick’s loss.
A lot of MMA fans are hoping for the return of GSP and Diaz is riding a whirlwind of momentum after beating McGregor. Hopefully GSP will come out of retirement and the UFC makes this fight happen.
