UFC Brass Meets With Nate Diaz, Dana White Storms Out Of Meeting Upset

2

Apparently the meeting between Nate Diaz and the UFC brass didn’t go quite as smoothly as their recent meeting with “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.

As noted, UFC management, including Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta, met with McGregor earlier this week to attempt to settle their dispute with the reigning UFC 145-pound champion.

Shortly after their meeting, UFC contender Nate Diaz reportedly requested that they meet with him in his hometown of Stockton, California.

White and Fertitta would oblige, and according to TMZ, met with Diaz only for White to lose his cool at some point during the meeting. According to various reports, White stormed out of a restaurant where the meeting was held.

Prior to the meeting, the UFC brass posed for the following picture of a Nate Diaz mural taken from the first fight with McGregor.
