Nate looks ready to rumble

Fanmio will present “LAST MAN STANDING” in association with Diaz’s Real Fight Inc. and Masvidal’s Gamebred Boxing Promotions.

Here is what the fighters had to say Wednesday from Pier 5 at Bayside Marketplace:


“If the last fight would of continued and gone to the end, this would be my city.

“He won the first fight, but I’m back for more. So that’s what’s popping. This is a new fight and I’m here to win.

“I expect him to do what he’s gotta do in there. He’s got a good coach and he’s doing what he’s supposed to do training, but I’ve been doing this a long time. We’ll see how it goes for him,” said Nate Diaz.

“I’m preparing for a way tougher fight from Jorge than I had against Jake Paul. 100%. Jorge is as experienced as it comes, so I’m ready for what he’s bringing. But having those rounds helped for sure.

“All I know is that we’ve been trying to make this rematch happen for a long time. He was the biggest opportunity in the game.”

Who is David Benavidez rooting for?


“I respect what Nate’s done in his career, but that goes away when we step in that ring. I only have one thing on my mind. I’m gonna put an end to this rivalry.

“I owe it to this city more than anything to go out with a W, and several of them. I’m in a really good place now and have to come back and get those W’s for this place right here. Do or die.

“I want to take the judges and referees and doctors out of it and leave it up to my hands and get Nate Diaz out of there Kimbo Slice style. Dade County style. These people here want that violence.

“It’s a badge of honor to face someone who’s willing to put it all on the line. That being said, I’m gonna end this guy on June 1.

“This BMF belt shows that if you get after it, you can get it done. It doesn’t matter who you are, you just gotta put aside the nonsense.”
