Yesterday BJPenn.com reported that Nick Diaz was offered a 'neat' bout by the UFC who had Diaz contemplating a return. His head coach Cesar Gracie told BJPenn.com radio about the offer, however, today UFC President Dana White refuted the story:

A day after Cesar Gracie told BJPenn.com that UFC president Dana White had offered Diaz a return UFC fight, White told MMAFighting.com on Thursday the opposite.

"Nobody at the UFC talked to Gracie or anyone else that reps Nick," White wrote via text message.

In response to a text message asking who the UFC offered Diaz, Gracie told MMAFighting.com Wednesday night, "Can't tell you."

Exactly, Cesar has no reason to falsify that information. Helwani's quote from Dana doesn't even debunk Cesar's statement - Cesar said Nick returned from Vegas a couple days ago with an offer.. Not once did he say that Dana gave Nick's rep or Cesar himself an offer for Nick...

 

Kinda gotta read between the lines on this one

Yup pretty tricky. If Dana spoke to Diaz directly and no one else, Dana's comment is still true.

We've definitely seen this before.

 

I'm not so sure it's an ego thing (wah wah, he stole my thunder) as it is a situation where it may not be 100% firm -- so he doesn't want anything mentioned until it's etched in stone.

Thread title seems to be misleading

No where does it say that Dana didn't offer Nick a fight directly, just that the UFC didn't go thru Cesar

Just last week he was denying the report that Silva Weideman 2 was going to be on Dec 28th, two days before announcing Silva vs Weideman 2 was going to happen on the 28th of Dec.

Exactly, I guess we are not supposed to know yet. We'll see.

Everyone knows that Dana is going to keep things quiet until they agree. I doubt that Caesar Gracie just completely made the entire thing up with no basis whatsoever. Let's just relax and wait for the announcement in the next week or so . . .
