“I like to fight, if I don’t, I gotta bump up to 170,” Ferguson told ESPN. “I hear Nick Diaz is looking for competition. I’m a 170-pounder … UFC told me, ‘well you’re kinda small’ well I have a big frame. All I was eating is like once a day because I was barely making ends meet. I got the frame for like a 205 pounder.”
Diaz, who turned 37 back in August, is looking to make his return to welterweight at some point early next year. The uncrowned king of Stockton has not competed since his “No Contest” against Anderson Silva way back in early 2015.
