During tonight’s UFC on FOX 3 post-fight press conference UFC president Dana White confirmed to the media in attendance that Nate Diaz, who is coming off of one of the biggest wins of his career will wait for the winner of Henderson vs. Edgar II.
In the lead up to the fight the UFC president was vocal about Diaz getting a title shot with a win, but with the Henderson Edgar fight now put off until September many speculated that Diaz would fight Anthony Pettis in the interim.
Dana White debunked those rumors and said “No, he will wait for his title shot.”
Nate responded by saying, “I am down for whatever”.
Will this news stick? Who knows, but that seems to be the plan at the moment.
