We haven’t seen Nate Diaz compete at a UFC event since his decision loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 202 in August 2016.
And it isn’t clear when we will.
Recently, TMZ approached UFC Boss Dana White about Diaz & where he has been. White responded:
“I have no idea. Maybe he is holding out for McGregor. Conor has endless possibilities for a fight. We keep offering Nate fights and he keeps turning them down. Nick, too.”
It didn’t take long for Nate Diaz to respond to White.
This fucker can’t stop making shit up about me and I haven’t been offered any fights except the one Iaughed at 👊🏼🖕🏼 pic.twitter.com/7gRskEXEP9

At one point, Nate Diaz was offered a fight against former UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alverez & wasn’t too thrilled about that matchup. Diaz responded with “Lol at your fight…” on Twitter. Diaz has gone on record stating that we won’t see him back inside The Octagon unless he has a big fight at lightweight or is paid $20,000,000 to take a fight.
The aforementioned fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 202 broke their Pay-Per-View buy rate record with approximately 1.65 million buys, which could be reasoning for the high demands of Nate Diaz.
