Dana White just had a brilliant response to Nate Diaz's recent rant.

Earlier this week Diaz took to The MMA Hour to voice his frustrations with the UFC and gave an update on his fighting career. Diaz has been out-of-action since his rematch with Conor McGregor at UFC 202.

Diaz was the first man to hand 'The Notorious One' a loss under the UFC banner when he submitted the Irishman in the second round of their UFC 196 meeting in March of last year. The pair rematched five months later and McGregor won via Majority Decision.

The Stockton Native revealed that he was offered a return fight against Tony Ferguson this Summer, but declined it because the UFC didn't meet his conditions (quotes via LowKickMMA):

“Yeah, I have — for July 8th. I wasn’t supposed to say that. And I gladly accepted it, and then it was gladly rejected because of circumstances. Sure, I will fight him, but under these circumstances, you know what I’m sayin’?

"Then I was ignored and the rumors went on. So I said, ‘why are the rumors still going if it’s not popping?’ And then I thought about it.

"Why am I going to do Conor McGregor’s fuckin’ work for him? No, fight each other motherfucker, and then you get a shot at the golden child right here, motherfucker.

"What are you going to do? You’re going to take time off to make $100 million to fight Mayweather and I’m going to do your dirty work for you?”

UFC President Dana White spoke to Yahoo Sports to respond to Diaz's claims, and slammed the lightweight and welterweight contender with 13 words - "At the end of the day, what is Diaz worth without Conor McGregor?":

“Whatever his deal is, he’s got a pretty good deal,” White said. “I mean, listen, at the end of the day, what is Diaz worth without Conor McGregor?

"I don’t know. The kid isn’t in a position for pay-per-view or any of that type of [stuff]. But this could put him in a position.

"If he fought Tony Ferguson, it would be for the interim title. Obviously, if you held the interim title, you would get a piece of the pay-per-view.

"Diaz has to put himself in a position to make the pay-per-view money.”

UFC 202: Diaz v McGregor 2

A fight between Ferguson and Diaz would be great for fight fans, but it seems as though he is a bit more focused on racing for the time being. Do you think we'll ever see Diaz fight again?
