TMZ caught up with Dana White on Wednesday and asked the UFC president about Diaz wanting to fight again.
“I’ll tell you what, I’ll call him today and make him an offer,” said White.
When asked what kind of offer White would be giving Diaz, the UFC boss said he still needs to take a look at the big picture.
“I don’t know, I got to look at the rankings, see where everybody is,” White continued. “I will make Nate Diaz an offer to fight today.”
TMZ added that UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley wants the fight with Diaz and White gave his thoughts on the matchup that was once in negotiations for UFC 219.
“The reality is there’s real guys like Rafael dos Anjos and guys in line waiting for that fight,” White said. “There’s so many guys that deserve that fight before Nate does, and they’re going to get it.”
White was then asked about the trilogy fight with Conor McGregor that a lot of fans are still keen to see.
“I think people would rather see Conor come back and either fight Tony or Khabib, whoever wins,” White said. “And the Nate Diaz fight ain’t going nowhere. We can do that thing anytime.”
