All those Nick Diaz rumors were put to bed by UFC president Dana White last week during his Google Hangout.
White, when asked about the status of Diaz, had the following to say:
“He’s still an active fighter here in the UFC, but as far as I know, he’s just not interested in fighting right now. He doesn’t want to fight. Obviously when Nick finally fought Georges St-Pierre, Nick Diaz made some money.
“So Nick Diaz has some kickback money. He can probably take as long as he wants to fight again.”
Reports of a Diaz return started up this summer thanks to his coach and manager, Cesar Gracie, but White quieted those rumors at the time.
In his last fight, Diaz lost to GSP for the UFC welterweight title. He started up his own promotion earlier this year, WAR MMA, and has run one card to date.
