Nate Diaz tweets he'll be attending his high school reunion instead of fighting Gray Maynard

USA TODAY Sports

The UFC has announced that old Ultimate Fighter rivals Nate Diaz and Gray Maynard would be rematching at the TUF 18 Finale. Now Nate Diaz has tweeted he'll be attending his high school reunion instead.

On September 8, the UFC announced via twitter that top Lightweight contenders Nate Diaz and Gray Maynard would be meeting for a rubber match at the TUF 18 Finale on November 30. Diaz immediately responded via Twitter that he'd prefer to be facing champion Anthony Pettis next.

Now he's tweeting again:

Presumably Diaz is having some fun at the UFC's expense but time will tell.

Also it should be noted that Diaz and Maynard fought first on The Ultimate Fighter season 5 tournament in a non-sanctioned contest that doesn't appear on their official records. Diaz submitted Maynard in that bout.

Their second bout occurred in January, 2010 and Maynard took home a split decision win.
