Nate Diaz Launches Scathing Attack On UFC After Loss To Jorge Masvidal At UFC 244

Nate Diaz Launches Scathing Attack On UFC After Loss To Jorge Masvidal At UFC 244

Nate Diaz has launched a brutal attack on UFC and Dana White after his devastating loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244.

The 34-year-old UFC star clashed with Masvidal in the headline slot for the BMF title at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York.

But the blockbuster clash ended controversially in the third round after Diaz picked up two horrific cuts -- one on his cheek and the other on his eyebrow -- and the cageside doctor told him he was unfit to continue.

UFC president White admitted to the press that he has 'no interest' in setting up a rematch between Diaz and Masvidal.

And Diaz lashed out at the UFC chief and argued that he deserved a rematch with 'Gamebred.'

He explained at his UFC 244 post-fight press conference: "They [the UFC] are not giving me no fights, you know what I am saying?

"And I know they aren't going to give me another good fight because I have already been through it.

"So, it's kind of like, give me what the f**k I deserve. You know what I'm saying?

"I think, I believe I deserve a rematch. I've given mine."

Diaz continued to stress the importance of his epic clash with Masvidal and how US President Donald Trump even attended the event.

The 'Stockton Slugger' said: "It's great. It was a big historical thing, whatever, I'm dealing with a loss right now so.

"But you know what I'm saying? It's pretty cool to come out here and headline Madison Square Garden.

"To be this big of a deal, like I said the President came out and all this stuff.

"Man ain't ever no president never came out for no fight, you know what I'm saying?"

The Stockton native, who returned to UFC in August after a three-year hiatus, has said that his priority is to set up a rematch with the BMF champ.

But he has questioned if UFC and Masvidal will hold true to their word over a rematch.

"I'm [the] realest fighter in this whole game," Diaz said.

"Let's see if he is. Don't play me.

"I plan on getting along with them. I hope they plan on the same."

Celebrity superstar Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson promised that he would strap the belt on the winner of Diaz and Masvidal and lived up to his word at the event.

However, Diaz had some strong choice of words for the WWE legend after he strapped the championship on Masvidal.

He said: "And fuck The Rock, too. I saw him smiling with Masvidal. He can get it, too."
