    Dana White hints at big fight for Nate Diaz, but it’s not Tony Ferguson

    UFC president Dana White has revealed that a fight for Nate Diaz is currently in the works.

    White, who recently said he was hoping to book Diaz (20-12 MMA, 15-10 UFC) in 2021 but wasn’t counting on it, appears to have made progress with “The Ultimate Fighter 5″ winner.

    While White didn’t reveal who the opponent is, he stated the fight would be at lightweight and not against fellow fan favorite Tony Ferguson.

    “We’re working on a Nate Diaz fight right now, and it’s not Tony,” White told TheMacLife. “But if we get it done, I think you’re gonna like it.”

    He continued, “It would put him in a really good position if he won the fight, and the guy who he could potentially be fighting, I think it’s a great fight for him, too.”

    Diaz hasn’t competed since suffering a third-round doctor’s stoppage loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 in November 2019. Prior to that, he earned a unanimous decision win over Anthony Pettis in August 2019.
