If you believe TMZ, things weren’t all peachy between UFC president Dana White and lightweight fighter Nate Diaz today. The celebrity news site reported that White flew up to Stockton to meet Diaz in regards to a rematch with Conor McGregor. This was after he met with McGregor last night, where they seemed to iron out their differences.
According to the report, White and Diaz were in good spirits when they meet up outside a tavern (as you can see in the video). But things went sideways while they were inside discussing things, and White abruptly ended the meeting and walked out to his waiting SUV.
TMZ stated that White was “visibly angry” when he walked out after talk had “turned serious”.
Diaz bested McGregor by submission in the second round of their UFC 196 welterweight bout, and the two men were expected to meet in a rematch at UFC 200. A promotional disagreement between McGregor and the UFC nixed that though, and it was rumored that they’d meet at UFC 202 instead.
If the strife between Diaz and White is legit, who knows what will happen next.
