The ending and aftermath of the UFC’s 25th Anniversary Press Conference were the most talked about parts of the event.
The presser ended with a hype video announcing lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and his longtime rival, former champion Conor McGregor, will finally meet in the main event of UFC 229 on Oct. 6. During the video, however, Diaz walked out of the press conference and took to Twitter, appearing to state he wouldn’t be fighting at UFC 230 in November before calling out both McGregor and Nurmagomedov.
In a post-conference interview with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, however, White says he has “no idea” what Diaz is talking about.
“We have a guy who works here at the UFC who loves the Diaz brothers and he wanted to get this fight done,” White said. “He wanted to do this, he thought it was time that Nate Diaz wanted to come back. This is his problem, not mine.”
White even suggested that the winner of the UFC 230 bout between Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier could be first in line for a title shot against the winner of Nurmagomedov-McGregor.
