Diaz hints at date for potential UFC comeback

Diaz hints at date for potential UFC comeback

Diaz has not fought in The Octagon since his UFC 202 defeat to Conor McGregor in August 2016.

The confusing and nebulous situation at the top of the UFC lightweight division continues to frustrate contenders - who at this point have no idea what they're fighting for in the octagon.

"I'll tell you what, I'll call him today and make him an offer", White said.

Lee (16-4) is now ranked right over Diaz in the lightweight division, and a win for either fighter would help them jump upin the polls.

"I'll see u around May, June".

Diaz was briefly linked to a potential fight against welterweight champion in December, but the fight ultimately did not come to fruition.

Diaz's 18-month absence was not due to injury, but rather the 32-year-old was holding out for a third bout with McGregor and was in dispute with the UFC over his fight purse.

White confirmed he had spoken to his biggest star about his return options and McGregor has suggested a fight in September would suit him best. "The Nate Diaz fight isn't going anywhere". Former champion Eddie Alvarez was quick to throw his name into the ring after he was actually offered a fight with Diaz past year.

The timing of Diaz's announcement will interest many fight fans after it was confirmed McGregor had turned down a title defence against Tony Ferguson. Former interim title contender Kevin Lee also tossed his name out as a possibility if the UFC needs someone to face Diaz later this year.
