Jason Lee, part of Money’s entourage, revealed the man who last beat McGregor could make an appearance on August 26
FLOYD MAYWEATHER is set to have Nate Diaz walk him out to the ring for his eagerly-anticipated super-fight with Conor McGregor, a close pal of the boxer claims.
One of Mayweather‘s “The Money Team” members hinted the fighter will walk out with McGregor‘s old foe when the pair meet in Vegas on August 26.
Love & Hip Hop star, Jason Lee – who was in London as part of Mayweather’s entourage for the final world tour press conference with McGregor – told TMZ Sports of the stunt.
Lee claimed Money could be walking out with the man to last beat Notorious.
He revealed: “I was just in London with Floyd when the whole s*** went down with Conor and I’m going to make the call to Nate Diaz.
“I would love to see him walk out with Floyd.”
McGregor lost to Diaz in March of 2016 when the Californian fighter locked the Irishman in a rear-naked choke forcing, him to tap out and suffer his first loss since 2010.
Mayweather has walked out to the ring a number of times with Justin Bieber but Lee said he doesn’t see the Canadian singer being involved in the ring-walk with Floyd again.

Most recently, McGregor was forced to hit back at former boxer Mike Tyson, who claimed Mayweather would “kill” the Irishman in the ring.
Tyson had said: “McGregor is going to get killed in boxing. McConor can’t kick and grab and stuff so he won’t stand much of a chance.”
But Notorious hit back, claiming: “That’s nice Mike. But you’re looking at the new Don King here, son. Money is mine.”
