UFC president Dana White provided updates on Nate and Nick Diaz this weekend following UFC 172, and it sounds like we might be seeing a Diaz inside the Octagon again soon.
Nate Diaz was in attendance for the show in Baltimore, working the corner of Yancy Medeiros, who lost to Jim Miller on the main card.
White told reporters following the press conference that “I think Joe Silva” talked with Nate Diaz, and stated that “Nate said he’s ready to fight, so, he told Joe to call him.” White did add that he did not directly talk with Nate, who called him and the promotion out over his current contract recently.
As for Nick Diaz, White said he has had no contact with him for weeks.
“Nick’s got a lot of money. I think Nick’s going to kick back until he has to fight,” White said.
Nick Diaz announced his retirement following a loss to Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title. He made demands of $500,000 per fight to return to the Octagon.
