Midnight Mania! Dana Denies Nate Diaz’ ‘Superfighter’ Title Fight Claims

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Nate Diaz claimed tonight that he is headlining UFC 230, and fighting for a title in a new weight class- the 165-lb. “superfighter devision”.

I’m Happy to announce that I’m bringing a new weight devision to the Ufc

I’ll be fighting the main event November 3rd in nyc against Dustin Poirier for the first ever 165lb belt superfighter devision

I’m happy to be apart of history @ufc @danawhite

Dana White was quick to deny reports, according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto. Apparently the UFC boss is against having fun.

Dustin Poirier had already been calling for the bout, and fully supported Diaz’ news. A 165-lb. weight class is one of the few additional weight classes that makes sense; welterweight and lightweight are two of the UFC’s deepest divisions. As it is right in the center of the bell curve for the weight of the average male, that weight range will never lack for men’s MMA talent. Fighters like Kevin Lee have previously called for such a weight class.

It might be rushed, but the timing would be convenient on a number of levels. The winner would naturally have an opportunity to call out the winner of McGregor-Nurmagomedov — if that ends up being McGregor, he would have the unprecedented opportunity to face a fighter he’s previously beaten for a third title. And surely it can’t be worse than ANOTHER interim title. I mean… come on. At the very least, just make Poirier-Diaz a five-round non-title main event. Market it as the lineal violent-weight title fight.

Fighters have lined up supporting the idea.
