Looks like we have one of those he said, she said stories in the world of mixed martial arts. According to Cesar Gracie, there’s a fight offered towards Nick Diaz and they will be heading out to Las Vegas soon to discuss the bout and it seems like a neat fight. Gracie used the term neat. Not us. Word just came out that Dana White has not offered a bout to Nick Diaz. Hmm? Something is definitely fishy here. White has been known to lie a time or two for certain reasons. He talked to MMA Fighting and you can see what he said right here:
“Nobody at the UFC talked to Gracie or anyone else that reps Nick.”
Sadly, with Dana you have to take whatever he says with a grain of salt. It could end up being a blockbuster bout and they’re just waiting for the right time to announce it. Or they want to wait for Diaz to sign the bout agreement before going further.
Unfortunately, we will just have to wait and see what is transpiring for Nick Diaz and Co. in the upcoming weeks. Hopefully, he does decide to come back to mixed martial arts. He’s a true character and people pay to see him fight.
