The Stockton native made his UFC debut in 2007. He won The Ultimate Fighter and got the contract to fight in the UFC. Since then, he has constantly expanded his fanbase and stock and fans still love to see him in action. Although he has lost three of his last four fights, it is considered one of the toughest matchups.

His last two fights were against two of the top guys in the welterweight division. He faced Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 for the symbolic BMF belt and Leon Edwards at UFC 263. Even though he lost both fights, it did wonders for his opponents. After ‘Gamebred’ defeated Diaz, he went on to fight for the welterweight title, twice. Now, it looks like the same will happen for Edwards.

‘Rocky’ was scheduled to face Masvidal at UFC 269, but the fight was scrapped. Now, according to Dana White, Edwards is next to face Usman. However, that didn’t go over well with Belal Muhammad, who is on a seven-fight unbeaten streak.

Diaz had the final say on the matter and posted a tweet saying, “To be a champion, you have to beat the champion.”
