    Nate Diaz has urged fans to abstain from buying NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) from the UFC, depicting himself and his elder brother Nick Diaz, again echoing calls for them to grant him his leave the organization. 

    Nate Diaz, who infamously retains just a single fight on his current UFC deal, has yet to book that fight, however, it doesn’t appear to be for the want of trying. 

    The Stockton fan-favorite has been out of action since June of last year where he featured in the first five round, non-title, non-main event in the history of the organization on the main card of UFC 273. Diaz would go on to suffer an eventual unanimous decision loss to the #2 ranked welterweight contender, Leon Edwards.

    In the time since, the Californian had been offered a fight against the now-#3 ranked, Khamzat Chimaev in December of last year, which he publicly rejected, before the duration of his contract with the promotion was extended.

    At the turn of the year, Diaz welcomed a welterweight rebooking against former interim lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier – who shared the same interest, however, the UFC – who were initially willing to book the fight, switched focus on the bout, with the pair now likely to land other fights, respectively.

    Multiple reports have detailed how the promotion would not be willing to book Diaz against Poirier with just a single fight remaining on his contract, with plans for him to re-up first, with the view of a future trilogy rubber match between Diaz and former two-weight champion, Conor McGregor.

    Nate Diaz has continually called for his release from the UFC in recent weeks

    With a severe lack of movement on his last contracted fight, Diaz publicly called for his release from the promotion – as well as welcoming a move to Bellator MMA in order to fight on this weekend’s Hawaii card.

    In his last post aimed at the UFC, Diaz, who turned 37-years-old earlier this week, urged fans not to purchase an advertised NFT of himself and his elder brother, Nick Diaz from the organization.

    “It’s sh*t like this why I need to get the f*ck out of the sorry ass UFC,” Nate Diaz tweeted. “Didn’t you guys suspend Nick (Diaz) for 5 years and fine me hella money for a vape pen?! Now you’re reaping the benefits. I hope nobody buys this bullsh*t. (five thumbs down emoji) (middle finger emoji)”
