Tensions are running high with the 209 and Dana.
Months removed from his five round war with Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz has been in limbo for awhile now. Diaz made a name for himself being the first fighter to defeat McGregor in the UFC. Since their rematch however, we haven´t hear much from the Stockton, California native.
Dana White, president of the UFC, is known for talking straight when it comes to his fighters. If a fighter turns down a fight, or is hard to negotiate with, he´ll come out publicly and let it be known to the media. At times he might not be telling the truth. He is a business man at heart after all.
It appears that he´s ruffled the feathers of one Nate Diaz recently as Diaz tweeted angrily in reaction to an article about him. The title of the article stated that Dana was saying Diaz was turning down fights and was ´holding out for Conor McGregor´.
This was Diaz´s reaction.
“This fucker can’t stop making shit up about me and I haven’t been offered any fights except the one I laughed at.” – @NateDiaz209 on Twitter
The reported ´laughed at´fight was a showdown with Eddie Alvarez. Apparently Diaz didn´t like that option.
The question now remains, who is Diaz going to fight next? Could it be GSP, Tony Ferguson or Khabib? Or maybe a trilogy fight with Conor?
