Recently the MMA world was buzzed by reports that Nick Diaz is finally returning to the cage for a bout with Jorge Masvidal, but now the Stockton star has denied that’s the case.

Dana White had reported that Diaz – Masvidal was going to be part of UFC 235, March 2nd. But recently Diaz told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that no fight is signed. In addition, Diaz reportedly said this:

“I think it’s rude of the UFC to try and lowball me and expect me to negotiate a deal while I’m training for a fight,” Diaz said via text message. “It’s not gonna go down like that. If anybody wants to fight me they know where to find me. I’m not a hard guy to find. Come get some.

“I have a lot going on trying to manage a few different businesses. Once things make sense for everybody in that they actually have some fighters that they respect and I respect, we can try and come to a deal and do a show. That’s how I feel.”

Diaz, who is now 35-year’s-old, hasn’t fought since January, 2015, when he faced Anderson Silva. The latter won the fight via decision, but that was overturned, when Silva tested positive for banned substances.
