Nate Diaz Might Have To Resign With UFC To Get Fight Vs. Vicente Luque

The Nate Diaz-Vicente Luque fight may or may not happen.

MMA Manager Ali Abdelaziz, who manages Luque, said the UFC might not let the grudge matchup happen until Diaz pens a new deal with the promotion.

“Listen, I believe Nate Diaz has one fight left on his contract,” Abdelaziz told MMA Fighting in a recent interview.

“…I think the only way UFC will agree to make this fight happen [is] if Nate re-signs with the UFC,” he continued. “But, I don’t know if this is good for Nate to re-sign with UFC,” he added.

Diaz, the younger brother of UFC veteran Nick, has been dubbed one of the “must-watch” fighters of the promotion.

He held his own against Conor McGregor twice, with Jorge Masvidal for the BMF belt and, in his previous fight, he featured in a first-ever five-rounder non-main event, non-title bout with Leon Edwards.

“At the end of the day, I understand the business,” Abdelaziz continued.

“I understand UFC’s point, but they know we want the fight, Nate wants the fight but at the end of the day, they hold the contract. I can push as much as I can but I don’t know what they want to do. Vicente, 100 percent will fight Nate or Nick [Diaz].”

Both fighters agreed to meet in the octagon via social media, but nothing is official yet.
