Nate Diaz hints at WWE debut: “We’ll see what’s ’bout to happen next”

Nate Diaz became a free agent after submitting Tony Ferguson in the fourth round of UFC 279. He recently may have dropped a clue about the direction his career will go on in the post-UFC era.

While there are rumblings of Rizin looking to book him to box Floyd Mayweather he might be more comfortable staying state side.

Recently, Nate Diaz uploaded a picture on his Instagram. He is seen standing beside Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Triple H is WWE’s Chief Content Officer, while McMahon is the promotion’s co-CEO.

Diaz’s comment for the image makes it seem as if he would try his hand at professional wrestling:

“We’ll see what’s bout to happen next.”

There have been several rumors that Diaz may join Bellator or participate in a boxing match with Jake Paul. It seems more likely that his first bout after the UFC will be in the WWE.

Diaz is quickly becoming a coveted opponent probably thanks to the fact he’s proven as a PPV star. Among those angling for Diaz paydays are Jake Paul, Floyd Mayweather, Bellator, Conor McGregor, former boxing champion  Adrien Broner and more.

Diaz is one of the only athletes that were allowed to go out of the UFC on a high note. Despite getting matched against Khamzat Chimaev, Diaz ended up facing Tony Ferguson and pulling off a submission victory. This is practically unheard of – UFC will typically phase out a veteran and go on to feature them on prelims and or give them a mismatch as to diminish their star power as they’re leaving.
