He instead, feels disrespected by UFC, reports MMA Fighting.
“I feel like, honest, I feel like the UFC wants to weed me the f**k out of this position,” Diaz told ESPN. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that. Sorry. I feel like a lot of people are coming at me now. I see them making a lot of excuses for [McGregor], and I think it’s kind of ridiculous.”
Nate is also unhappy with the way fans reacted after his win.
“I don’t think it’s just the UFC. It’s everybody. People are saying, ‘Oh, [McGregor] is great, he’s accepted the loss so well.’ If I would have lost, people would be saying, ‘piece of s**t shouldn’t have accepted the fight.’ I don’t mean to be bitter, but there are a lot of excuses being made for this guy. He’s talking about winning the first round. There are five rounds in a fight. Who gives a s**t if you won a round? You lost.”

Although McGregor wants a rematch, but Diaz is more interested in a rematch with lightweight champion, Rafael dos Anjos. Diaz and Dos Anjos last fought in 2014, where the Brazilian won by unanimous decision.
“I’m thinking probably the lightweight title fight, whatever is biggest,” Nate said. “The biggest thing with Lawler and GSP — I would have been all about those fights and I am, but at the same time, my brother [Nick] is coming back and those are his fights. Those are Nick Diaz fights. I’m not trying to step on his shoes. We’ll see how things play out. As far as rematches go, I lost close decisions and never got a rematch.”
One thing is for sure though. Diaz wants the biggest fight with the biggest payday as he said.
