The Diaz brothers: No real fighters

Dana White says Nick and Nate Diaz are continuing to turn down fight offers

The Diaz brothers are still a couple of the biggest enigmas in a sport full of enigmas. Nate Diaz just competed in two of the most lucrative fights the UFC has ever put on, but still isn’t booked for a fight almost seven months after the last one. Nick Diaz isn’t suspended any more, and is eligible to fight. Yet he’s not booked either. So what’s up?

UFC president Dana White doesn’t understand it either.

In a conversation with TMZ, a jovial White gave his non-update on where things stand with them:

"We keep offering Nate fights and he keeps turning them down. Nick too."

When asked why he thinks they’re doing that, he said "I have no idea." It was suggested that Nate may be holding out for a third fight with Conor McGregor, to which White had a quick reply. With a caveat:

"Maybe. Maybe he is." ... “But Conor has endless possibilities for fights."

He’s not wrong. McGregor has two viable candidates for UFC lightweight title defenses (Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov) along with Diaz, and then there’s the specter of a boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather for the brash Irishman.

Nate has recently said that the UFC has “put him on the shelf”, so he was applying for a boxing license. He also stated that he was looking for “big deal fights” because he was going to make money regardless, and that he wasn’t waiting for Conor.

As for Nick, he’s mostly been quiet about his MMA intentions at the moment.

Hopefully something comes together for Nick and/or Nate soon, because fans would really like to see them back in the Octagon.

They should fight because some loser on the internet says so?

All you do is shit on real fighters. No one owes anything to most people, especially lowlifes, like you, who spend all their time shitting on people, over the internet.

If Nate is being smart with his money, he can afford to sit back and wait for the fights he wants. Why take more head damage taking fights he's not interested and getting paid peanuts for it?

If they offered to pay them what they're worth they'd take the fight.

fuck you op, dana didn't say that.

LOL at "their worth." They want to make money off others names. It's why they turn down everyone except GSP, Anderson, or Conor.

If they were the names they think they are and their fans think they are, they be bringing in 750-1M buys fighting anyone, like GSP, Conor, and Brock did.

Of course they want to make the most money they can from other people's names. Makes sense right?

And both GSP and Conor did their best numbers against, you guessed it, the Diaz bros!

lol what dana never said that.  

Fight anyone for less money to earn OP's respect! Holding out and waiting for big money isnt cool! Take fight after fight like chuck that ended well

But now nick makes NO money.

If he's a huge draw, why not take 3 fights a year while creating 750k PPV buys per fight instead of holding out for a name to draw him 1M buys once every 3 years? That would be over 2M buys a year if he's so popular, and way more money.

OP sucks. Nothing new.

I think Nick and Nate both share the same mindset that fighting isn't something they enjoy. So they will do it periodically against the biggest draws. The fans demand for them allows them to do so.   They've already done the 3-5 fights a year for years and now they've afforded themselves the opportunity to hold out.  If they were in some financial trouble they would have to take what's offered like most. 


Do you have problems with this? 

stickman - They should fight because some loser on the internet says so?

the should fight because the claim to be real fighters, but they don't. they jusy sit around until the money is gone and then the start fighting.

They have a solid hardcore fan base. I'd be curious how Nate vs Alvarez or Nick vs Wonderboy would do as a headliner. My guess isn't great

fight fans wanna see fighters fight, not reading they turn down fights while being healty.
