Dana White gave answer about Nate Diaz’s question

The most prominent storyline entering UFC 279 is the contract status of Nate Diaz, one of mixed martial arts’ biggest stars ever.

UFC president Dana White isn’t panicked, however, at least he didn’t show it when asked about Diaz’s impending free agency.

“Nate and I talked and I said, ‘Listen,’” White said. “This kid came in on ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ He’s fought incredible wars for us. He’s been a big part of this company for a very long time. What more could I ask of Nate Diaz? If Nate is ready to make this his last fight, I wish him all the best in the world. It’s been fun. It’s really been fun dealing with those two.”

White’s comments may seem sarcastic at face value, but he further clarified he legitimately enjoyed having the Diaz Brothers on board with his promotion.

“At the times, at certain times, it was whatever, but looking back, the Diaz Brothers have been an absolute blast. They’re legends in this sport. They’re legends in this company. These days come with all the guys. If that’s what Nate wants, then, yeah, we wish him the best.”

White’s comments come hours after Diaz (20-13 MMA, 15-11 UFC) expressed mixed feelings about his situation during UFC 279 fight week.

“This fight’s not even about this guy,” Diaz said. “It’s about making this guy. It’s about making this motherf*cker. And I’m like, ‘OK, well, you guys aren’t gonna let me go, because I’m the best fighter here. And you’re not gonna let me go unless it’s off of somebody. I gotta make somebody for you?’ Well, all right. You’re welcome. Let’s make him. You’re welcome, UFC.”

Regardless, the show rolls on for the UFC. White said the upcoming event headlined by Diaz vs. Khamzat Chimaev (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) is trending well.

“I’m excited for it,” White said. “I’m sure you guys feel it like I feel it on social media. This stuff is cracking. They’re pulling big numbers right now. I’m expecting good things this weekend.”
