Diaz says that White did not have his back while he was battling a lawsuit from his 2016 fight with McGregor. UFC 229 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be for Nurmagomedov's lightweight belt.

The former champion reached a plea deal with a NY court earlier this month to avoid jail time and deportation, which cleared the way for the former champion to compete in the Octagon.

He didn't seem too thrilled about the prospect of his own return being upstaged by McGregor.

McGregor has been absent from the sport for two years.
