Nate Diaz record
His opponent, the black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Tuf 5 Lw tournament winner Nate Diaz, has an official record of 20-13-0 (80% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.54 in the welterweight division.
He won just one out of his last four bouts, against Anthony Pettis in 2019 (Anthony Pettis vs Nate Diaz); after this match he has lost to Jorge Masvidal (Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz) and Leon Edwards (Leon Edwards vs Nate Diaz).

The last time he won a fight was in 2019 when he faced Donald Cerrone (Tony Ferguson vs Donald Cerrone), after this match he has lost four consecutive bouts, the last two with Beneil Dariush (Tony Ferguson vs Beneil Dariush) and Michael Chandler (4-stars bout, Michael Chandler vs Tony Ferguson).
If you want to watch Ferguson’s best fights, we suggest a 4-stars match of 2016, Tony Ferguson vs Landon Vannata, and two bouts that ranked in the top 10 Users’ Fight of the year 2015 and 2018, Tony Ferguson vs Edson Barboza and Tony Ferguson vs Anthony Pettis.
