UFC Boss: Nick Diaz Not Interested In Fighting At This Time

UFC president Dana White believes Nick Diaz could return at some point to the Octagon.

But, for now, Diaz remains retired.

White, during his Google Hangout earlier this week, discussed the former Strikeforce champion.

“He’s still an active fighter here in the UFC, but as far as I know, he’s just not interested in fighting right now. He doesn’t want to fight. Obviously when Nick finally fought Georges St-Pierre, Nick Diaz made some money,” White said. “So Nick Diaz has some kickback money. He can probably take as long as he wants to fight again. I would assume that’s why [he’s not ready to return].”

Diaz was bested by St-Pierre earlier this year in his quest to become the UFC champion. He started up his own MMA promotion, WAR MMA, and ran a card this year.
