Jorge Masvidal is concerned that 38-year-old Nick Diaz will seriously injure himself if he takes another fight in the UFC while out of shape.

Masvidal, who defeated Nick’s younger brother Nate for the BMF belt in 2019, admitted he’s not sure whether Diaz’s recent return to action was financially motivated.

The veteran effectively fought to a self-imposed stoppage against Robbie Lawler in his first fight for six years two months ago.

Nick Diaz was defeated in his first fight in six years when he faced Robbie Lawler.

And Masvidal expressed his concern on The MMA Hour, saying: ‘[It was] not the Nick Diaz I’m used to, obviously. I was fighting alongside Nick when he was in Strikeforce and I was in Strikeforce, so I met a very different Nick Diaz. I don’t wanna see the guy get hurt, man.

“ I would love to see him in top form, go there and fuck some people, but I don’t know how much reality he is now after seeing his last performance. I want him not to get hurt.

And if he goes back there, I want to see him as close to his old self as possible. I don’t think it’s his last performance, we have to see that.

After the loss, Diaz hinted that he had been pressured to take the fight before he was ready and was therefore at his best.

It remains to be seen if he will return to the Octagon and if money is his motivation, Masvidal is glad he does not have to face the same problems.

I don’t know what Nick Diaz is going through. I dont know [if he’s dealing with the] IRS. I don’t know what it is, why he was fighting, ”Masvidal continued.

No one’s coming to tell me. Thank God, financially, I will never have to fight again. Whether I continue to fight now or not, I am doing well financially, so I don’t see myself in those straits where I am going to fight for money again. I will fight again because I love it, it is my DNA.

‘I love doing this more than anything I’ve ever done in this world. But as for financial situations and things like that, I will not return here. I worked too hard for this, I put too much money aside a long time ago so I don’t have to worry about it.

‘The day I get away from that, it’s because I feel like I can’t compete at that level anymore. I’m not going to be anyone’s stand. I’m not holding anyone’s jockstrap either. No way.’

Masvidal recently pulled out of his UFC 269 fight against Leon Edwards due to an undisclosed injury.

He suffered a KO loss by Kamaru Usman in April and now Edwards seems determined to wait for a title shot, rather than wait for Masvidal to recover.
