So now it appears Matt Brown and Nate Diaz won’t be meeting at UFC 189.
After Diaz said that he never signed on for the match that was announced by the UFC, Brown confirmed that the fight would not be taking place on Twitter.
According to FOX Sports, Brown said ‘he didn’t sign the contract’ when asked about the bout. For his part, while Diaz admitted that he was intrigued by the possibility of fighting Brown, he didn’t like being forced into the match.
“I think that’s a great fight, everybody would want to see that fight — I would if I was just a fight fan, that sounds like an awesome fight, like a fight you’d like to see,” Diaz said Monday. “But it was never talked about, and it kind of feels like I’m being forced into a fight instead of talked to and dealt with fairly.”
