Jose Garcia, the athletic recovery coach of the Diaz bros, has sent a warning to Dustin Poirier following his recent victory at UFC 257.

Poirier squared off with Conor McGregor for a second time on Saturday evening in Abu Dhabi. ‘The Diamond’ and ‘Notorious’ had previously collided in a featherweight contest in 2014, with the Irishman emerging victorious by way of first round knockout.

Dustin Poirier was able to exact his revenge on Conor McGregor last weekend, defeating the former two-division champion way of second round TKO.

Immediately following his sensation win, Poirier received a callout of from the youngest Diaz bros, Nate.

“I’m training to whoop ur ass next. Be about it don’t talk about it.” – Diaz wrote to Poirier on Twitter.

Dustin Poirier discussed a potential Nate Diaz matchup during Saturday’s UFC 257 post-fight press conference in Abu Dhabi.

“I always wanted to whip Nate Diaz’s ass. That interests me. I’m sure something will make sense. But just right now, I don’t… Me and Conor are one and one. Nate Diaz got away and likes to talk a lot of sh*t online. I just got to go back home and we’ll see.”

Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz were previously set to collide at UFC 230 in November of 2018. Unfortunately for fight fans, ‘The Diamond’ suffered an injury and the bout was ultimately cancelled.

Most recently, the Diaz bros athletic recovery coach took to social media where he shared the following warning for ‘The Diamond’.

“Dustin Poirier, how you doin baby girl ?? you talking big smack in the hospital broken from Conor. You owe him this clout he gave you chance after he KO you on your first bout. You died in there got finished???? You messin with the most dangerous team.”

A recovery coach that they don`t need while not fighting.I don`t know why Dana has such a hard on for the Diaz brothers.Both are over the hill IMO & don`t belong in top 5 or championship fights.

I agree but the fact is Nate is still one of the biggest drawing PPV stars in the company when he does fight.

Are you sure? I just looked at the top 40 selling PPV`s and Nate is only on there when he fights Conor.Conor is the star that brings in the PPV`s no matter who he fights.

Nate Diaz is definitely not impressed by the top fighters in the UFC lightweight division.

At UFC 257Dustin Poirier knocked out Conor McGregor in the main event to solidify his status as one of the best fighters in the world at 155 pounds. Poirier, though, didn’t get to leave Abu Dhabi with a championship title because lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov still holds the belt despite announcing his retirement this past October.

Following the close of the event, Poirier seemed slightly upset that he hadn’t been crowned champion, especially considering Nurmagomedov has made it clear he doesn’t intend to fight again. McGregor, meanwhile, accepted his loss, but then suggested a third fight against Poirier that could potentially crown a new champion in Nurmagomedov’s absence.

Well, Diaz took to Twitter on Monday to fire shots at all three lightweights as he continues to tease a possible comeback at some point in 2021.

“[Conor McGregor] and [Dustin Poirier] got choked on your face the other day by a guy (Khabib Nurmagomedov) that ran off and didn’t want none, especially with me,” Diaz said.

“How you gonna fight for a title? I been here 14 years and no one can do me like that ever in life

Diaz closed out his diatribe with an “LOL” at the lightweight division.

The post made reference to three fighters Diaz has history with including two fights with McGregor and a scheduled bout against Poirier in 2018 that fell apart in the weeks leading up to the event. As for Nurmagomedov, Diaz has often taken aim at the UFC lightweight champion, especially after the physical altercation that took place between them at a World Series of Fighting event in 2015.

Of course, it should be noted that Diaz hasn’t competed at 155 pounds since a win over Michael Johnson back in 2015. Since that time, he’s instead competed in the welterweight division, where he split a pair of bouts against McGregor. He subsequently returned to win a decision over Anthony Pettis and then lost to Jorge Masvidal in his most recent UFC appearance in 2019.

UFC President Dana White has teased a possible return for Diaz in 2021, but nothing has been settled in terms of opposition. Both Poirier and McGregor have mentioned Diaz as a fight each would be interested in taking. It remains to be seen if the UFC is willing to book either of those matchups right now.

Masvidal vs Usman was 1.3m so I’d imagine Nate v Masvidal would be higher.

I like the talk, but Nate better learn to check a kick. That's been his weakness and Diamond just put on a clinic.
