White: I reached out to Diaz’s team about a fight with Maia

Last August, Nick Diaz’s 18-month suspension had officially lapsed. But as of this moment, the UFC has yet to give him his next fight date and opponent.

Maia vs Diaz would be a great fight to see! I am looking forward to seeing Nick back finally, hopefully the time off didn't make him rusty. He needs to accept a fight and get back in the octagon

Maia vs Diaz would be awesome to see, but I would have rather seem him vs Woodley. Can't believe he turned that fight down. Does he think he can make the same purse his brother is asking for?

Diaz can't afford to be turning down fights right now. I hope he returns to the octagon soon, it has been way too long without Nick

Yeah what's he doing turning fights down? BE PATIENT. He's seen what Nate has made and now want's his own piece of the pie. Thing is, Nate only made money because he's an excellent match for Conor. Nick... not so much.
