'Cowboy' bumped into Diaz in Las Vegas, Nevada, for UFC 235 with the pair of UFC favourites setting up a rematch.

Here's what Cerrone said to Diaz per journalist Brett Okamoto.

Cowboy: "Nate, when you fighting again?"

Diaz: "It's not me. UFC doing it."

Cowboy: "Well, just so you know, I'll fight you."

Diaz: "S---. We'll do it at 185. I'm done cutting weight."

Cowboy: "Okay."

Well, that was easy.

Cerrone and Diaz have already faced each other inside the famed Octagon. They fought way back at UFC 141 with the Stockton-native outpointing Cerrone.

Cerrone, who owns the most victories in UFC history, was expected to fight Conor McGregor. Though that idea has evaporated.

The sticking point was the placement of the bout on a card.

"They were trying to do 'Cowboy' vs. Conor and apparently the sticking point was that it was going to be a co-main event," Joe Rogan explained on his podcast.

"I think the idea is that they want to have world titles on the line in main events for pay-per-views."

It appears Cerrone will now take on Diaz for the second time in his UFC career.

Meanwhile, Diaz hasn't fought in the UFC since his loss to McGregor at UFC 202. He's been offered a host of fights but has turned them all down, including a match-up versus Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Cerrone vs. Diaz rematch in 2019? Make it happen, Dana White.
