- Nate Diaz called out the UFC for holding up on his next fight
- The 37-year-old made it clear that he’s not interested in facing Conor McGregor again
Nate Diaz is certainly not the guy who likes playing the waiting game. It has been almost a year since he last competed in the UFC and now, he badly wants to step inside the octagon once again.
Why is it taking too long?
Indeed, Diaz hasn’t found any success in the late. However, the Stockton native appears to be well aware that he is still a commodity in the sport.
With that in mind, Diaz is starting to lose patience as he wonders why the UFC is seemingly taking too long in booking him a fight.
“I been trying to fight everybody and no go what’s the hold up ufc [sic],” Diaz wrote on Twitter.
I been trying to fight everybody and no go what’s the hold up ufc 😡👊🏼 ?

No McGregor trilogy bout
Having lost to both top contenders, Leon Edwards and Jorge Masvidal in his last two fights, Diaz is unlikely to get another high-ranking fighter in his return.
“I’m not fighting Conor he sucks [sic],” Diaz added. “I’ll fight some one [sic] quit slow rolling me please. Thanks.”
Having crossed out McGregor on his list, Diaz could possibly rekindle his desire to take on No. 1 lightweight contender Dustin Poirier. The pair has already shown interest in settling their social media feud inside the octagon but a deal has yet to be closed.
This was not the first time Diaz expressed his disappointment over not getting a call from the UFC. Last month, he already flirted with a possible move to Bellator, stressing that he eyes to be injected in an April event under the Scott Coker-owned promotion.
With both the lightweight and welterweight divisions stacked with elite fighters, it will be interesting to see who Diaz will be facing next.
