Nate Diaz politely tweeted to Dana White that he wants to leave the UFC

Here we are, just days removed from Gilbert Melendez leaving UFC to sign with Bellator only to use the promotion as leverage and resign with UFC. We’re not even going to suggest that Nate Diaz is employing the same tactic, because we know he is. Heck, even the UFC knows he is. Nate’s agent Mike Kogan publicly stated that he or Nate will not make a follow-up comment regarding his desire to leave the UFC until they talk to Lorenzo or Dana — which makes all of this so obviously a tactic at contractual leverage. Well, good for him I guess. If only I could leverage myself into paying myself more, that will be the day.

Check out this tweet from Nate Diaz politely asking Dana White to get rid of his contract.
