It was smooth sailings for the UFC and Conor McGregor at a recent meeting in Beverley Hills, but things didn't go too well in Stockton, California.

That's where UFC heads Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta agreed to meet Nate Diaz to discuss the terms of a rematch with the Irishman at UFC 202.

TMZ reported yesterday that the UFC president stormed out of the meeting and MMA Fighting recently confirmed the report to be true.

Shortly after the riff Diaz, who put an end to McGregor's win streak in a welterweight tilt at UFC 196, uploaded a photo of White and Fertitta in seemingly high spirits in front of some graffiti art in Stockton.

Sources close to MMA Fighting claim that White returned to the meeting but was unable to finalize a deal with the Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu product.
