Burns, who now competes at welterweight, responded to Diaz with a joke about his somewhat uninspiring 20-12 MMA record, but Hooker seems much more interested in a fight.
Hooker hasn t fought since his Fight of the Night epic with Dustin Poirier earlier this year, which saw The Diamond earn a unanimous decision win after five hard-fought rounds in the UFC on ESPN 12 main event at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas.
Diaz, 35, is once again in a state of quasi-retirement following his TKO loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244, which saw Gamebred win the BMF title.
