After recently being flagged by USADA for the usage of selective androgen receptor module (SARM), Nate Diaz has now taken to Twitter in order to send a message to UFC President Dana White, asking him to fix the situation in order to have the Stockton fighter compete in the main event of the upcoming UFC 244 pay-per-view.

UFC 244: Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz

Having made his Octagon return at UFC 241 in August, Nate Diaz secured a very impressive win over Anthony 'Showtime' Pettis in his return fight via unanimous decision in the co-main event of the show.

As noted, in his post-fight Octagon interview, Diaz called out Jorge Masvidal, who is currently on the back of an impressive five-second win over Ben Askren from UFC 239, as 'Gamebred' was officially challenged to a Welterweight bout by The West Coast Gangster.

Shortly within the span of a few days, the UFC officially booked a fight between Diaz and Masvidal with the two men set to collide for the BMF Title in Las Vegas. However, Diaz recently released a statement on Twitter claiming that he has been tested positive for banned substances and will not be fighting in Las Vegas for UFC 244.
