Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier have never fought in the octagon. But that doesn’t mean they haven’t traded verbal jabs with each other over the years.

The two called each other out over Twitter on Wednesday, leading some to believe that a fight between the two might finally come to fruition.

Poirier started by tweeting out “Nathan?” Wednesday afternoon. Diaz responded a few hours later with “Let’s fight don’t be scared this time tho.”
