White told ESPN in November a bout between Masvidal and Diaz was consented for UFC 235, which can be scheduled for March 2 in Las Vegas. Following UFC 231 at Toronto on Dec. 8, White affirmed that the struggle was a move, as much as he was aware.
&ldquo far as I know sitting here now, that and & rsquo struggle;s ,” he explained. “that struggle is really on, so far as I know. Until something occurred since Tuesday, which is likely, it’so forth. ”
The only thing that has happened since Tuesday is that Diaz and ESPN spoke, telling them that he had never agreed to the struggle.
“I believe that it ’s rude of the UFC to attempt to lowball me and expect me to negotiate a bargain while I’m & training for a struggle,” Diaz said via text , in accordance with an ESPN report. “It’s maybe not gon na na go down just like this. They know where to find me, if anyone wishes to fight me. Come get some good.
“I’ve alot on trying to manage a companies that are diverse going. Once things make sense for everybody at that they have some fighters they admire and I respect, we could decide to try and come back to a deal and do a show. That’s the way I feel. ”
Since fighting Anderson Silva at January of 2015, diaz, who hasn & rsquo; t resigned stressed he does not have any issue with Masvidal, but only had not agreed to fight him. Diaz theorized the UFC & rsquo; rsquo & s deal wasn; t adequate to pull him back into the cage, also has too many other irons in the fire .
&ldquo as I am in a great place in exactly what I’m working and things look the way it should, ” ’ll be delighted to provide. But I believe they will be okay for now with what’s out there. There aren’t even any fights for me personally someone sticks outside,” Diaz stated.
“rsquo & I;ll struggle if they can be reasonable, but I didn&; rsquo;t talk about exactly what it might or may [accept ]. They are the main one ’s tripping. ”
