#3. Dana White was told he has a decade to live

A note on any story about a promoter/promotion talking to Nathan Diaz right now: don’t believe it. Not true. It’s actually illegal. Diaz is in an exclusive three-month negotiation period with the UFC. Meaning he can’t talk to anyone. And he hasn’t talked to anyone.

Per Helwani, it’s a standard clause that’s inserted into every UFC deal and can be waived at the promotion’s discretion. However, this has not been waived in Diaz’s case so far.

This is standard procedure, btw. Every UFC deal has this baked in. So, unless they wave it, which they have in the past, there’s no talking to anyone out there. And they haven’t waived it.

It seems Diaz will have to wait out this period to move on with his career unless he is willing to re-sign with the UFC. The chances of the latter happening appear slim.
