ADRIEN BRONER has called out Nate Diaz to a boxing match – shortly after the icon left the UFC.
Diaz, 37, ended the MMA franchise after his dramatic win over Tony Ferguson last month.
But he’s not short of options for his next venture.
And now the free agent has been offered a fight by boxing rules.
The 33-year-old Broner took to Instagram with a post challenging the California southpaw, who recently started his own fight promotion.
The 34-4-1(1) Ohio star wrote: “Nate Diaz if you come over to boxing I’ll give you anything you’re looking for #letsgetit.”
Broner was a four-weight world boxing champion and returned to the ring in February 2021 to beat Jovanie Santiago on points.
But he knows that an in-ring showdown with Diaz would draw a huge crowd of fans and dollars.
Diaz recently ridiculed rival Conor McGregor’s dedication to the boxing world, claiming his rival “failed to take over” the ring.
The feuding pair then had further hits on each other when McGregor began an acting career.

Turning down Broner’s bet also gives Diaz the option of a bare-knuckle fight with fellow ex-UFC fellow Mike Perry.
However, it seems unlikely that the UFC will be able to use a three-month exclusivity clause in MMA to get the 21-13 former Ultimate Fighter 5 champion to reverse his decision to leave.
Diaz, who has Bellator vying for his signature, revealed that the “only” fight he would have in the UFC would be against Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
