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.
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.
McGregor and Diaz were originally expected to headline the UFC 200 extravaganza, but 'The Notorious' was pulled from the bout after refusing to attend a Las Vegas press conference.
Bloody Elbow will provide more news coverage as the story develops.
