Diaz fell short in his bid to become the 'baddest motherf**ker of the Octagon' at last weekend's UFC 244.

And it seems the 'Stockton Slugger' is done with the fight game.

"F**k a rematch this shit was over before it started Goin on out on tour Peace out fight game," he wrote.

A decision which surprised the 34-year-old veteran. Speaking to Joe Rogan immediately after the fight, he said: "I didn't think they were gonna stop it. I was getting ready to get started.

"I had a little bit of an issue earlier today so I couldn't run as much as I usually do, I wasn't going to really push until round four.

"My game plan was starting to kick in, but he got the job done like he suppose to, so right on to Jorge for what he did."

Before his loss to Masvidal, Diaz was coming off a decision victory over Anthony Pettis at UFC 241 in August.

His victory against Pettis marked his first Octagon outing in over three years as he hadn't fought since his defeat to Conor McGregor in 2016.
