Previously, they even tried to push for a matchup between Chimaev and Leon Edwards, who is currently a top 5 ranked fighter. However, due to the pandemic, we couldn’t witness this exciting fight. This 2021, Chimaev is ready! Taking to social media, the star has called out Nick Diaz’s name for a fight. With both sides being such big names, the crowd’s favorite now is the former. 

A big payday

Nick hasn’t fought any match since 2015, and his last win was in 2011. While the check could be good, his fans might not be ready to see the Diaz brother get demolished. His durability could come in handy, but Chimaev could still have the upper hand if they fight. Before starting their hiatus, both Diaz brothers are arguable the most popular sibling duo in the fighting world. Between them, Nick even went on to win the title of Strikeforce Organization champion after carving his legacy. His most notable record was the rivalry with George St Pierre and the controversial loss against Carlos Condit.
