For now, Nate Diaz has dropped the curtain on his UFC career, but it looks like he’s far from finished fighting.

The 37-year-old presented Tony Ferguson in the main event of UFC 279 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

After the event, Diaz was interviewed by Joe Rogan and asked where his future lies now that he has fought his UFC deal.

“I just want to step out of the UFC for a while and show all these UFC fighters how to take over and own another sport, how you’re supposed to do that,” said Diaz.

“Because Conor McGregor didn’t know how to do it and none of these other fighters know how to do it, so I’m going to go out and take up another profession and become the best at it. Show everyone I’m the best at it.

“Boxing, kickboxing, ju-jitsu, other MMA organizations… If you think you’re the top, creme de la creme here, honey. I’m rooting for you.’

It has long been rumored that Diaz would take Jake Paul up on an offer to box him. The YouTuber turned professional boxer, who faces another UFC legend in Anderson Silva in October, wasted no time responding to Diaz’s words.

“Nate Diaz says he wants to go boxing…I wonder who he’s fighting?”

Elsewhere on his social media, Paul had more comments about Diaz.

“Nate Diaz is a muthuf***** legend and would have punched Khamzat,” he tweeted.

Paul also praised the way Diaz celebrated winning the fight, posing while Ferguson was still trapped in the guillotine.

The Problem Child has been openly confrontational with names like Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather when he called them out for fights. However, there seems to be an underlying amount of respect for Diaz.

Diaz, who spent 15 years at UFC, is leaving the company with high shares and a proven pay-per-view draw. Should he now choose to make money fighting Paul, few fans would really blame him.
