UFC president Dana White told a media lunch in Las Vegas on Tuesday that a bout between UFC welterweight champ Woodley and Diaz made no sense.
White also remarked that “Nate Diaz has turned down a fight with everybody on the roster.”
Woodley told MMAFighting not long after:
“Why would I get in camp, and why would Nate give a $15 million purse request if there was no fight? It’s obvious they haven’t found their blockbuster headliner yet. This was a reality, and they know it. The inability to come to financial terms with Nate killed it.”
Diaz had his say on Thursday via his official Instagram page, uploading a video which showed White’s comments, before switching to another clip of the 32-year-old Stockton Slapping the UFC President. Diaz captioned the post “shutup bitch, your both thirsty … and why is u lying.”
