NATE DIAZ appeared to suggest Dustin Poirier has REJECTED an offer to fight him and slammed that his UFC rival 'sucks'.

The American veteran made the claim on Twitter and referenced talks with the UFC over a bout with Poirier.

Diaz posted: "I just talked to the ufc I said wassup with the Dp fight I wanna fight asap but they said dustin sucks and they don’t want it sorry Dustin you suck hope to fight asap tho let’s do this

"Ps Olivera you suck too."

Diaz, 36, and Poirier, 32, were set to fight in 2018 at UFC 230 until it was cancelled.

The pair have rivalled ever since and both recently opened the door to reviving their grudge match.

Poirier later revealed the UFC had approached him for a 'super short-notice' fight with Diaz, which he was willing to accept.

On Teddy Atlas' podcast, Poirier said: “No contract has been signed yet, but if this does go through I’m going to take it.

"This would be super short-notice. I already looked myself in the mirror. I spoke to my wife and my boxing coach, people I talk to regularly.

"I talked to my coach Mike Brown as well. They’re behind me if I decide I to take this fight.

"But I have to look myself in the mirror and ask, ‘Do I want to take this fight.’ I did exactly that. I looked in the mirror and I just felt good. I want to do it.”

Poirier only recently lost in December to lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, 32, who Diaz also hit out at in his tweet.

Whereas Diaz in June was beaten by British welterweight Leon Edwards, 30, on points but only after almost scoring a late knockout.

This guy really fights and I’m a fan of him, but everybody’s a tough guy on the internet.

Poirier refused to remain tightlipped about potentially facing the fan-favourite, but goaded that talk is cheap.

He said: “I don’t owe these guys nothing. I’m not biting my tongue. It is Nate Diaz.

“I’m not going to say a card. I’m not going to say what date. But he got on Twitter talking.

"This guy really fights and I’m a fan of him, but everybody’s a tough guy on the internet.

"He said something like, ‘Let’s do it.’ I said, ‘Yeah, sure. I’ll really fight you this month.’”
