Nate Diaz: UFC return talks revealed after team-mate makes comeback statement

Conor McGregor Khabib Nurmagomedov

"If you do a fight that big, you've got do it in Vegas", White told TMZ Sports. "Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it wont be that fight".

However, according to ESPN, Diaz is set to make his comeback after holding a series of meetings with UFC president Dana White.

Irish athlete Conor McGregor is now considered one of the most popular fighters in the UFC.

Diaz is one of the more popular fighters on the roster, but granting him a title shot in his return doesn't seem warranted.

McGregor is now facing multiple charges of assault and has a court date set for June 14.

Nurmagomedov succeeded McGregor as Lightweight champion when he defeated Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 earlier this month.

McGregor is due back in court on June 14 to appear before a judge regarding those four charges stemming from the bus assault. The bus incident took place after a media event ahead of UFC 223 PPV event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

McGregor is by far the UFC's biggest draw and getting him back in action sooner rather than later is only going to be good for the company's bottom line.

Diaz and McGregor rematched later that year in Las Vegas for a huge rematch, which remains one of the greatest fights of all time. Diaz said after the fight that he'd wait to fight again until he is able to share the Octagon with McGregor, and he has stuck to that word - until now. "If you do a fight that big, you've got to do it in Vegas", White told TMZ. However, White says it won't take place in Russian Federation, as the UFC is expected to debut in Nurmagomedov's homeland in the near future.

"So he's not looking at, in Brooklyn, generally, you wouldn't get jail time for this, especially if it's your first offense, which I understand this is". "Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it won't be that fight".
