"If you do a fight that big, you've got do it in Vegas", White told TMZ Sports. "Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it wont be that fight". UFC president Dana White also told Okamoto there's "no update" on when Diaz might fight again. McGregor has been charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of criminal mischief after throwing a dolly through the window of the bus at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. As a result, fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg suffered injuries from the shattered glass and were forced to withdraw from UFC 223.

Diaz's last fight was in August 2016 when he lost to Conor McGregor via majority decision. "He's gotta be punished by the law first".

Diaz is one of the more popular fighters on the roster, but granting him a title shot in his return doesn't seem warranted.

As of now, the UFC hasn't issued any sort of punishment for McGregor's actions and it doesn't appear they will hand down any kind of suspension or fine at least until after the former champion has his day in court.

The report notes, however, that neither champion Khabib Nurmagomedov or McGregor have been tabled as opponents.

"We'll see what happens".
