Eddie Alvarez would want to fight Nate Diaz at BKFC. Alvarez makes his bare-knuckle boxing debut against fellow UFC alum Chad Mendes in the BKFC 41 co-main event on April 29 at Denver's 1STBANK Center. The main card will be available for $49.99 on FITE TV online.

Alvarez says that there aren't many names that interest him these days, but if he had to choose one to fight after Mendes, it'd be free agent Diaz.

“We were in the same weight class, we’ve asked for him a number of times during my MMA career, during my UFC career. It never came to fruition. Timing, title shots, you name it, wrong opponents. Nate Diaz is the only guy I’d want that I would only say, ‘Hey, can we sign this guy and bring him over here?,” Eddie Alvarez told MMA Junkie.

He also recalled the showdown he had with Nate Diaz.

“I almost fought Nate in Mexico when I was fighting Gilbert Melendez. I confronted him in Mexico City about grilling me and doing some weird little kid bullsh*t and we got into it and then UFC broke it all up. We never got to hash that out. And I beat up his teammate so I thought after I beat Melendez that maybe that would warrant a fight against him, but still, he never fought me. So, I think this is the right stage, this is the right opportunity to get this done. He’s a free agent, I’m over here and I’d love to fight someone like him right after this,” he said.
