Recently, Nate Diaz has called out Welterweight hot shot Matt Brown after 'The Immortal' called out Nate's brother Nick Diaz.

In response to the fight, UFC President Dana White is having none of it. Speaking to UFC Tonight, White said:

"There's no way in the world.That fight has not been talked about. It's not even close. We never even considered that fight. Nate Diaz did say he was interested in that fight, but that fight doesn't make sense.

"He's fighting at '55. He's lost two of his last three fights, and Brown is on this unbelievable roll. Brown is a welterweight and has been fighting there for a long time, and is deserved a top contender."

White makes valid points. Nate Diaz is a natural Lightweight and has had excellent succes there. Further, Nate has struggled at Welterweight before. Between 2010-2011, Diaz went 2-2 at 170lbs, losing to top 10 fighters Dong Hyun Kim and Rory McDonald - clearly this displays he struggles at that weight.

Nonetheless, White would like to make the fight with his older brother Nick. White stated:

"If Nick Diaz wants to come out and fight Brown, I'll do that fight."

Currently, the former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion is in retirement since his loss to Georges St. Pierre for the UFC Welterweight Championship, which he lost via unanimous decision.

That was in March 2013, and since both Nick and Nate Diaz have complained about their current payment situation under the UFC. However White has stated that the eldest brother has plenty of money and will only have to fight when he runs out out cash. 

Either Diaz would be a great fight against Matt Brown. However the fans would much rather see Nick return in the Octagon as his personality is missed along with the skills he possesses.
