Nate Diaz teases fans after posting 'Rizin's' picture on his Twitter

Nate Diaz might have found a new home in the land of the rising sun.

Diaz completed his contract with the UFC after 15 years with a submission victory against Tony Ferguson at UFC 279 in September. Since then, almost everyone has speculated on what Diaz will do next.

While most expected Diaz to enter the boxing ring with fights against Floyd Mayweather or Jake Paul, it appears that those who have RIZIN Fighting Federation on their Nate Diaz bingo card may be the winners.

The Stockton Slugger took to Twitter to tweet a promotional image for the Japanese fight company, giving fans even another option to choose from.

While RIZIN FF is not yet a household name, the promotion has made significant progress in recent years, scheduling bouts with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather. On New Year's Eve, the promotion faced off against Bellator MMA fighters in a well-received cross-promotional event. On the same night, RIZIN announced the signing of another boxing legend, Manny Pacquiao.

When it comes to brand growth, RIZIN FF president Nobuyuki Sakakibara knows that relying primarily on the Japanese market is no longer realistic. Nate Diaz could be precisely for a future North American expansion.

Could we see Nate Diaz performing in Rizin or would he opt for a good paycheck against Jake Paul? Let us know in the comments
