He will come after Tyron Woodley and it will be an extraordinary battle. That is the battle that is going to happen.”
Diaz, who has not battled since part a couple of battles with Conor McGregor in 2016, has made a lot of clamor as of late about being prepared to come back to activity. Be that as it may, White says Diaz has turned down various battle offers.
“We’ve offered Nate Diaz five or six battles over the most recent a while and he’s turned them all down,” White said. “I’ve said many circumstances throughout the most recent a while that I don’t see Nate Diaz battling. Will he battle this year? Perhaps he’ll turn out and see he needs to battle inevitably, however no, he’s turned down each battle we’ve advertised.”
