Bare Knuckle FC will make a run at Nate Diaz after his final UFC bout takes place in September as he is slated to complete his UFC deal when he takes on Khamzat Chimaev in a five-round main event at UFC 279.
Diaz has made it very clear that he wants out of the organization so he can pursue other opportunities.
BKFC president David Feldman talked about bidding for Diaz in a Thursday interview with MMA Junkie Radio.
Bare Knuckle FC is interested in signing Nate Diaz
“I think it would be a great fit for our organization,” Feldman said. “Let’s see what happens with this fight that they just announced in the UFC with him.”
“The one thing I always want to worry about is that these fighters should still be fighting and not saying he definitely should be fighting,” Feldman said. “But after a tough fight like that, does he want to continue fighting? Is his heart in it? Is his body still in it, and is he ready to do it?
“If those answers are yes, 100 percent we would be in the Nate Diaz business – a hundred percent.”
