UFC president Dana White provided updates on Nate and Nick Diaz this weekend following UFC 172, and it sounds like we might be seeing a Diaz inside the Octagon again soon.

Nate Diaz was in attendance for the show in Baltimore, working the corner of Yancy Medeiros, who lost to Jim Miller on the main card.

White told reporters following the press conference that “I think Joe Silva” talked with Nate Diaz, and stated that “Nate said he’s ready to fight, so, he told Joe to call him.” White did add that he did not directly talk with Nate, who called him and the promotion out over his current contract recently.

As for Nick Diaz, White said he has had no contact with him for weeks.

“Nick’s got a lot of money. I think Nick’s going to kick back until he has to fight,” White said.

Nick Diaz announced his retirement following a loss to Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title. He made demands of $500,000 per fight to return to the Octagon.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones doesn’t gloat that much when it comes to his fellow fighters. But after seeing what transpired in the UFC 172 co-main event, “Bones” laughed last.

Phil Davis took it on himself all week leading up to the card to push Jones and try to “poke the bear.” Anthony Johnson, though, didn’t get the message that he was suppose to be a stepping stone, defeating Davis by decision.

“Phil Davis isn’t happy,” said Jones, who sang the Pharrell Williams hit “Happy” with Tim Kennedy during the post-fight press conference.

Jones proceeded to high-five Johnson across the podium before rehashing how he told Davis to stay focused heading into his own fight.

“I heard you had some good uppercuts,” Jones said, talking to Johnson. “Nice. Congratulations. Phil was talking all that greasiness and now he’s somewhere pouting.”

Davis was not at the post-fight press conference and offered just a simple message on his Twitter account, telling fan he was “Sorry” and thankful for the support.

Isaac Vallie-Flagg had a war with Takanori Gomi Saturday night at UFC 172, and his face continues to prove just that.

Vallie-Flagg and Gomi were named the “Fight of the Night,” as both men picked up additional checks for their efforts.

“I go out on my shield every time, sorry I came up short,” he wrote on Twitter. “Also thank you Gomi it was an honor to share a cage with such a great fighter.”

IVF took to Twitter to post a couple of pictures, or selfies as they are called, with both Gomi and the UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Vallie-Flagg and Jones are teammates in New Mexico at Jackson-Winkeljohn gym.

Glover Teixeira couldn’t find an answer for Jon Jones Saturday night at UFC 172, and left the Octagon battered and bruised.

Teixeira was dealt his first loss since joining the promotion, as “Bones” picked him apart. The Brazilian also cited an injured shoulder suffered early in the fight.

“We were dry and he surprised me with that,” Teixeira said. “I knew Jones was a tough fighter. He is different every time and a great champion.”

Teixeira was trying to land his heavy left hook, and admitted he did “three-or-four times,” but added that Jones just “came back stronger.”

“The guy is tough,” he said. “He take my best shots. I might have a broken rib (and the shoulder injury, possibly a dislocated right shoulder).”

Jones didn’t use his reach, instead, he fought Teixeira from in close. That came as a surprise to the veteran.

“I did my strategy, I tried to push him,” he said. “I hit him with my hooks. He beat me at my best.”
