Nate Diaz Hits Out At UFC Roster Over Pay Dispute, Then Immediately Deletes His Message

And Masvidal, 35, on Friday took to social media and launched a scathing attack on the UFC chief amid stalled fight negotiations.

The 'Stockton Slugger,' who last fought against Masvidal at UFC 244 in November 2019, has since deleted his message from Twitter.

White has since fired back at UFC stars over the ongoing pay disputes and told reporters that fighters are classed as "independent contractors."

And the UFC chief dismissed the obligations that fighters have to the MMA promotion with a comparison made to the NFL.

"These guys are independent contractors," White said at the UFC 250 weigh-ins.

"This isn't like the NFL, where I can make you -- you come to practice and you do this or you're going to get fined. These guys can do whatever they want. They can say whatever they want.

"I had a big thing the other day with a reporter about fighter pay. They can come out and tell you what they make any day of the week. They can do any of that stuff. These guys can do whatever they want. They don't have to fight.

"And we're not begging people to fight. We're offering fights, because in our contract, I have to give you three fights a year. I owe you three fights a year. You have the ability to turn them down and not take them. So they can do whatever they want."
