“The thing that’s sad about it: I like them. And I used to have a really good relationship with Nate, but fighting or any other sport, it isn’t a profession. It isn’t a job. It’s an opportunity. It’s an opportunity to make money. It’s an opportunity to achieve great things in a short window of time.
And if they want to sit out their window of time, for the rest of their career, that’s up to them.
… We keep offering Nate fights, and he turns them down. Nate, by not responding, thinks he’s not turning them down. But by not responding, he is turning them down. That’s not really how it works, you know?”
“It’s not frustrating for me at all. If the Diaz brothers don’t ever want to fight again, that’s up to them. They’re fun to watch. I know people like to watch them. But you can’t make grown men fight. They either want to fight or they don’t.
“The world moves on, man.”
During his recent media scrum, UFC President Dana White discussed the hiatus of the Diaz brothers.
