The pair were scheduled to meet at UFC 200 before Conor McGregor was adjudged to have ignored media obligations
Following a seemingly cordial meeting between Conor McGregor and UFC officials last week to resolve the issues of UFC 200, it now seems as if Nate Diaz is not happy about the proposed arrangements of their rematch.
Reports circulating from MMA media indicate that a meeting between UFC president Dana White and Nate Diaz, did not proceed as smoothly.
White flew to California yesterday for a meeting with Diaz which apparently ended with the UFC fighter becoming upset and storming out of the restaurant. Financial details are rumoured to be at the root of the conflict.
Some footage has emerged of their first meeting in which they appear to be on friendly terms before relations allegedly turned frosty.
Meanwhile, Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar are on the UFC 200 card instead.
It went well. Still, the next fight, which all parties want it to be Nate v Conor, isn't a done deal by any stretch. https://t.co/n3DRIyDcIV— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) May 19, 2016

Yes Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta flew to Stockton today to speak to Nate Diaz. Was told Diaz wanted "Conor" treatment. They come to him.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) May 20, 2016
