Nate Diaz is quite displeased with the way the UFC has been treating him. Diaz has been on the last bout of his contract for quite a while.
This predicament was first revealed by Ali Abdelaziz when Diaz was in talks to meet Vincente Luque back in October of 2021. Since then Diaz lobbied a number of athletes to help him finish out his contract.
But the UFC brass is unwilling to let that happen. This is why Diaz was most likely so irked as to retaliate in a petty manner following a recent meeting.

Diaz shared the image himself and pointed out that UFC has no plans to cut him regardless of his record and behavior.
He’s likely right.
Recently it was confirmed that the UFC PPV numbers have been slipping and that UFC 274 was bought only 400,000 times. Compare that to 1.65 million PPV buys for McGregor Diaz at UFC 202.
Previously there was talk of Diaz and Michael Chandler.
But Chandler nipped the idea in the bud during a recent interview revealing he splintered his shin against Tony Ferguson. This means that the summer date that was previously speculated about was out of question.
