Morning Report: Michael Bisping makes case for Nick and Nate Diaz to be UFC Hall of Famers

It takes a UFC Hall of Famer to know a UFC Hall of Famer.

Michael Bisping had no trouble finally making his way into the UFC Hall of Fame upon his retirement in 2017. “The Count” is one of the most miraculous comebacks and underdog stories in MMA history, helping to put the British fighter on the map. It all culminated in the form of the UFC Middleweight Championship.

In 2023, another group of legends were inducted into the Hall of Fame during International Fight Week in July this year. Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo, Jens Pulver and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone are all in the UFC 290 during Boxing Week and in the epic rematch between Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald at UFC 189 in July 2015. Each name is one of the most popular names from their respective generations, leaving Bisping wondering if we’ll see the induction of Stockton Cal’s best Nick and Nate Diaz.

“My God, of course, no doubt, no doubt,” Bisping said his YouTube channel. “I’m talking about two. I think Nick Diaz certainly deserves to be inducted over Nate Diaz. Of course, Nate Diaz is a global sensation Characters, wins over (Conor) McGregor and losses to McGregor, they are one of the top pay-per-view guys and people love this guy. They love to watch him fight.”

Even though Nate Diaz left the UFC at the end of last year, he still maintains a good relationship with the promotion, and earlier this month, he attended the Noche UFC event in Las Vegas.Former lightweight title challenger ultimate fighter 5 The champion has competed inside the Octagon for 15 consecutive years and has a record of 16-11 (21-13 overall). As Bisping mentioned, Diaz’s biggest career victory was undoubtedly his second-round rear-naked choke victory over McGregor. If Diaz doesn’t make the pro roster, he’ll likely be in one or both of McGregor’s fights one day.

Nick Diaz, on the other hand, had the best success of his career during his time in the UFC, when he competed primarily in Strikeforce and won the promotion’s welterweight championship. He defended the title three times before returning to the UFC in 2011, defeating former two-division champion and Hall of Famer BJ Penn via unanimous decision. Nick’s record in the UFC is 7-7, 1 NC (26-10, 2 NC).

Probably one of the only things currently holding the Diaz brothers back from entering the UFC Hall of Fame is that they haven’t officially retired yet and insist on fighting again at some point. There are no strict rules for the selection of active fighters, it’s just something UFC CEO Dana White has mentioned in recent years. Regardless, Bisping hopes to see the iconic duo join him in history.

“They deserve to be in the UFC Hall of Fame,” Bisping said. “When 20, 30, 40, 50, 100 years from now, they deserve to be remembered. They were two of the most aggressive players, always ready, always ready, always in good shape, in all areas Both are dangerous, have great striking, amazing submissions, and have huge followings. How could we forget those guys? I mean, if I get one of those (trophies), Nick and Nate Ted Diaz certainly deserves one of these.

“If I make the choice, they’re going to be in the Hall of Fame, simple as that.”
