It appears the likelihood of UFC welterweight Nick Diaz ending his premature retirement to once again take to the Octagon is quickly becoming a case of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”. Earlier this month, Diaz’s longtime trainer Cesar Gracie announced his star student has been approached by the UFC with an interesting proposition. Though he didn’t provide details, taste-buds where whetted and fans quickly began buzzing about who Diaz had been offered.
“There was no miscommunication; it was Cesar. I haven’t spoken to Cesar Gracie in over a year,” asserted White.
White continued on to explain he’d spoken to Diaz recently but not about a fight, stating he was as clueless as the rest of the public on whether or not the Stockton scrapper would ever see action again.
“Nick Diaz isn’t an easy read,” concluded White.
Diaz hung his gloves up after a decision loss to Georges St-Pierre in March as he also did a year earlier after a defeat to Carlos Condit. The 29-year old finisher has racked up a 26-9 record in his career.
