"Oh, definitely. Definitely," he said about a potential return for the Stockton slugger. "I think Nate will fight (in the UFC) again."

However, his comeback fight won't be a rematch with Masvidal.

Speaking to ESPN, White said he has no interest in matching Diaz against Masvidal for the time being.

"I don't think you do an immediate rematch," he revealed.

"We gotta see how some of these fights play out and see what's next for [Masvidal].

"I mean he's talking about fighting again after next year. So, you know, still a long ways away and a lot of things can change in that division in the next six-to-eight months."
