There have been some talks about Diaz returning this summer, but the Stockton native says there are no interesting opponents for him to face.
“What people don’t understand is that any fight I fight is going to be a money fight,” Diaz said to MMA Junkie. “I’m not waiting for anybody. I’m just waiting for a motherf-cker to do something. Let’s get a real fight going. I’m not going to be involved in no weak sh-t. Nobody interests me right now, but I’m interested in doing something. I don’t think the UFC wants any of those fights to happen because we haven’t been talking about none of them. So time will tell.”
Diaz recently shot down a potential super fight against Georges St. Pierre, saying the UFC is selling “wolf tickets” to the non-existent bout.
The fighter also says there was an opponent recently lined up for him, but Diaz neglects to mention who that possible foe would’ve been.
“There was a fight I asked them for, and now that that fell through, we’re back to square one,” said Diaz.
Even though Diaz hasn’t competed since UFC 202, it is worth noting that he sits at #8 in the UFC Lightweight Division Rankings.
