UFC star Nate Diaz is given career advice by DOMINIC CUMMINGS! Boris Johnson’s former advisor bizarrely tells the fighter NOT to sign a new contract and risk being ‘screwed’
- Nate Diaz only has one fight remaining on his current UFC contract as it stands
- The organisation will reportedly not give him another fight until he extends it
- Fan favourite has been given some advice from the unlikeliest of sources
- Domminic Cummings warned Diaz that he should not sign a fresh deal
Just when you thought you’d see it all in the mad old circus of professional MMA, Dominic Cummings offers career advice to Nate Diaz.
Diaz, 36, has one fight remaining on his current UFC deal and it is understood that the organisation will not offer him another fight unless agrees to sign fresh terms, to avoid losing him for nothing.

Dominic Cummings, political strategist, gave some unsolicited advice to the American
The Stockton fighter simply wrote: ‘I’m (sic) fight somebody.’
Two days later, Cummings replied, warning Diaz not to sign a new deal and telling him that he could make far more money outside the promotion.
He advised: ‘Do not sign new UFC contract, you will make more cash outside AND Dana White will come to do a deal at some point for the Conor McGregor trilogy.
‘But outside you’ll have much more leverage & make more $. Look how they screwed Georges St Pierre.’
GSP is widely considered one of MMA’s all-time greats but was unable to pursue big-money cross-over fights outside of the organisation after retiring as he was still technically under contract with the UFC.

Diaz is widely reported as wanting to face Vicente Luque next but Luque’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, says he thinks the UFC will block the fight unless Diaz signs a new deal.
He told MMAFighting: ‘Listen, I believe Nate Diaz has one fight left on his contract. I like the fight. I think it’s a great fight. I think the UFC, it’s a business, they want to make money and I think Nate and Conor [McGregor] will make them so much money.
‘I think the only way the UFC will agree to make this fight happen [is] if Nate re-signs with the UFC. But I don’t know if this is good for Nate to re-sign with the UFC.
‘But at the end of the day, I understand the business. I understand the UFC’s point but they know we want the fight, Nate wants the fight but at the end of the day, they hold the contract.
Conor McGregor and Diaz are widely expected to fight for a third time in what will be a lucrative bout for all involved, though Cummings says Diaz will make more out of contract
‘I can push as much as I can but I don’t know what they want to do. Vicente, 100 percent will fight Nate or Nick [Diaz].’
Diaz last fought British star Leon Edwards in June and almost found a finish late on, although in truth he was well beaten over the five rounds.
He remains on of the UFC’s most compelling athletes and his popularity endures defeats like few others. Perhaps if he is looking for new representation to negotiate with the UFC, Cummings might throw his CV into the mix…
