Dana White Reports Nate Diaz Has Been Offered Bout, Nick Diaz Has Turned Down Two Fights
By FCF Staff
Nate and Nick Diaz are two of the biggest names on the UFC’s roster, but it remains to be seen when the Stockton stars will fight again.
Nate Diaz hasn’t fought since he faced Conor McGregor for a second time in August, and lost the thrilling fight via decision. Nick Diaz, meanwhile, hasn’t competed since January, 2015, when he lost via decision to Anderson Silva. The result was overturned, however, after the latter tested positive for banned substances.
UFC President Dana White recently spoke with MMA Junkie, and he reported the following:
“We just offered Nate Diaz a fight, and we’re waiting to hear back from him, so we’ll see,” White said. “These guys say they want a fight – I offered Nick Diaz two fights. He turned down two fights. I offered him Robbie Lawler. Robbie Lawler accepted the fight. Then I offered him Demian Maia. Nick Diaz turned down two fights. And then we just offered Nate a fight.”
Maia recently repeated that he intends to wait for a title shot. Welterweight champ Tyron Woodley will face Stephen Thompson again on March 4th at UFC 209.
