Regarding fight offer from Dana White, Nick Diaz says 'I don't have a manager so...'

USA TODAY Sports

Last weekend, Dana White told media members that Diaz had rejected a recent fight offer through his manager who reinforced Diaz's retired status. However, Diaz came out today saying he hasn't had a manager since he fought GSP in February.

In a Light Heavyweight fight, Vitor Belfort capped off UFC Fight Night 32 with a 77 second KO win over Dan Henderson. After the show, UFC president Dana White sat down for a post-fight media scrum. When asked about a potential return of former Welterweight challenger Nick Diaz, White said, "I offered Nick Diaz a fight last week and his manager called me back saying he's retired," White said on Saturday night."

Apparently, the reported offer comes as a surprise to the Stockton native. Diaz told Fighters Only:

I don’t have a manager right now so…

I don’t have a manager. I haven’t had a manager since my last fight. They should know that.

His last fight was the unanimous decision loss to Georges St. Pierre for the 170 lb. title at UFC 158 in March.

And once again MMA fans are left to wonder, what exactly is going on with Nick Diaz? The Welterweight has said recently that he'd be willing to return to the Octagon for a 'big fight'. However, he doesn't specify exactly what fight would be big enough to initiate the comeback. He did say he's not interested in fighting Middleweight Michael Bisping, who called him out recently. For now, we'll just have to wait and see if the UFC and Diaz can reach an agreement.
