Even though Nate Diaz ended his holdout with the UFC to face Rafael dos Anjos at UFC On FOX 13, it appears he still isn’t happy about it.
According to Diaz’s manager, Mike Kogan, his relationship with the organization isn’t any better than what it was.
“No. F**k no. No. We’re not happy,” Kogan told Fight Hub.
According to Kogan, the original eight-fight deal Diaz signed prior to his December 2012 title shot against Benson Henderson is still the main cause of discourse between Diaz and UFC President Dana White.
“We weren’t happy when we were signing it,” said Kogan. “Just kind of made it work because it was two weeks before the fight and there just wasn’t time to be making a lot of waves.”
Kogan says that he just didn’t like the way White handled things with Diaz.
“[White] spent a whole year trashing [Diaz] and now he’s fighting a No. 3 guy in the co-main event on FOX. Talk about ‘needle movers.’ If he’s not moving the needle what is he doing there? How do you get to a co-main event and ‘you’re not a needle mover’ and ‘you’re insignificant’ and ‘I don’t care if he never fights again, he can just go away forever.'”
Nate Diaz faces Rafael dos Anjos Dec. 13 at UFC on FOX 13 in Phoenix, Arizona.
