Looks like Nate Diaz was willing to step up and face Anthony Pettis to save the UFC 196 card after, Fabricio Werdum and Cain Velasquez pulled out due to injury. Pettis has been on social media lately begging for a fight, saying he would be ready for any card, well, it looks like he wasn’t willing to take that fight with Nate Diaz, check it out.
The other option? Nate Diaz vs. Pettis. It was discussed, on the table. In fact, Diaz was the one who brought it up. Couldn't come to terms.
