Nate Diaz turned heads in late July when he tweeted his apparent displeasure with the UFC the day after appearing on Conan.

Diaz announced on social media that the “UFC played me again,” along with the hashtag #trustnobody.

However, on Friday’s UFC 202 media conference call Diaz clarified his tweet and its meaning:

“It was just some behind-the-scenes stuff that they were not telling me about and hiding from me,” Diaz said on a UFC 202 conference call. “They had me doing a little run-around. I was just trying to get home and train. I didn’t want to be out there for that long. It all worked out though. I had training out there and it was just like [McGregor] said, it’s a distraction when you’re out there.

“Like, f*ck this sh*t. I mean, that stuff is all good and fun after a fight, but before the fight it’s like, I’m not in the mood to sit here and answer silly ass questions and play silly ass little sketches and roles when I’ve got this sh*t going on. But it all got worked out and everything is all good.”

Who do you think will win the rematch at UFC 202, Diaz or McGregor? Sound off PENN Nation!
