Nick Diaz dubs Tyson Fury 'the last of a dying breed' after boxer trains with UFC legend and issues demand to Dana White

NICK DIAZ has dubbed Tyson Fury 'the last of a dying breed' following his recent training session with the WBC heavyweight champion.

The MMA great got some training in with The Gypsy King in Miami on Friday, much to the delight of combat sports fans.

And Diaz – the elder brother of fellow fan favourite Nate – clearly enjoyed his time with Fury, sharing photos of their training session on his social media pages.

He tweeted: "Last of a dying breed.. real fighting men only a few can relate. My bro @Tyson_Fury."

Diaz, 37, looked to be in tremendous shape ahead of a potential return to the octagon – which he hasn't set foot in since January 2015.

And the Stockton slugger's current condition prompted Fury to demand UFC president Dana White book him a fight.

A fired-up Fury said: "I'm here with my boy Nick, the bad man Diaz. What you saying, Nick?

"We're working hard, we're coming for all you motherf*****s out there. You're getting smashed to f**k. You better believe it.


"Absolutely smashing it, he's in tremendous shape, he's ready.

"Make the fight Dana, make the fight."

Mixed martial arts fans across the world are excited by the prospect of the elder Diaz brother returning to the cage.

UFC supremo White, however, isn't so sure about the former Strikeforce welterweight champion's desire to compete.

He told ESPN: "My whole thing with Nick Diaz is I just question how bad he really wants to fight.

"We got together, we had a great conversation, talked about a possible comeback for him, I just don’t know.

"We’ll see how it plays out this summer and the rest of this year.

"It’s just the amount of time that he’s taken off already.

"When you hear him talk about fighting, when you hear him talk about the sport – and I sit down daily, or talk to daily, hungry, young savages that want to break into the top ten, become world champions, all that stuff.

"Nick Diaz has done it all, seen it all. He’s been in big fights. I just don’t see that in him when I talk to him."
