Nick Diaz Would Only Come Back For An Offer That Couldn’t Be Refused


Nick Diaz hasn’t been seen in the Octagon since UFC 183, where he and former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva fought to a no contest due to a pair of failed drug tests.

Although many fighters and even UFC President Dana White have made offers for Diaz to return to the Octagon, it hasn’t come to pass at this time.

Diaz would take to Instagram to address a potential comeback, which would only happen if it was for an offer the fighter couldn’t refuse:



I’m no role model, I’m 35 years old, but I definitely wouldn’t advise anybody to take a fight for less than their worth or fight for free. Which is practically what I would be doing at this point in taking a fight with some of these guys that are not on my level. Nor would I be within my moral ethics to even do that aside from you not painting me as a role model. If there was an offer I couldn’t refuse, things would be different. Until they are - I’d like to continue to think I’ve been fighting to make the world a better place, but until I can continue to do that: “I don’t want to hurt nobody, I just want to party.” -------- Cc: @ufc @nick_diaz_academy @natediaz209 @riokid @thefloridaboy @bellatormma @tmz_tv @mmajunkiedotcom @mariolopez @arielhelwani @foursigmatic

Gilbert Melendez, a longtime teammate of Diaz, recently stated that the Stockton native has retired and that looks to be the case at this point in time.
