UFC contender Nate Diaz is in the process of getting a boxing license in Nevada.
The news was first reported by ESPN.com.
The NSAC required a $50,000 fine to be paid stemming from a controversial press conference with Connor McGregor. NSAC executive director Bob Bennett is working with Diaz’ camp to process the paperwork.
Nate Diaz has not competed since his rematch with McGregor last year at UFC 202. He also follows McGregor in applying for a boxing license in California making it the second UFC star in the past year to apply for a boxing license.
Those two applying for boxing license creates all kinds potential ideas for the MMA and boxing world. Talking about it and creating hypotheticals may be fun. Especially when Floyd Mayweather Jr. has already told ESPN.com that he’s spoken to Diaz about dabbing in boxing. The reality is that the UFC’s biggest star, McGregor, is under contract. And no nicely-printed license from the NSAC can change where he fights until that contract is honored, renegotiated or terminated.
