VIDEO | Nick Diaz tells boxing promoters to buy out his UFC contract

August 5, 2016 11:26 am by Russell Ess

Nick Diaz is fresh off an 18-month suspension after testing positive for marijuana.

Now eligible to resume his MMA career, Diaz has stated that he is only willing to compete against big names and do big fights that will equate to big dollars.

Recently, Diaz was asked if he would ever fight in the boxing ring against some big names and said that boxing promoters first need to buy out his UFC contract and then he would be happy to jump in the ring.

“You gotta talk to Dana White,” Diaz said. “Get one of these guys to buy my contract or something and we can make a run but of course, I’m with the UFC so I can’t. I’m not doing no fights this year unless somebody wants to negotiate something. But otherwise, hey yeah, like I said, these guys buy my contract we’ll be fighting out here all day. Everybody gets paid, we’re happy.”
