UFC President Dana White is adamant that Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson won’t be facing each other under the UFC banner.
Last week manager Ali Abdelaziz claimed that Nate Diaz was down to the last fight in his UFC contract. According to him, it’s the reason why a supposed fight against his client Vicente Luque is no longer happening because the UFC would rather “make money” and book a third fight between Diaz and Conor McGregor, instead.
But the Stockton native has other plans on mind and they include “El Cucuy” himself.

Yesterday Dana White finally cleared the air on the Nate Diaz contract situation. While he did confirm Abdelaziz’s claim, he also shut down the potential Tony Ferguson matchup.
“He’s got one more fight. We’re working on a fight for him. Tony wasn’t one of the guys we’re working on, but we’re working on a fight for Nate now. He’s got one more fight left,” White told the media during the UFC Vegas 41 post-fight presser.
Nate, 36, is on a two-fight losing streak, while Ferguson hasn’t fought since May 2021 when he lost for a thrid straight time.
