MMA Hour host Ariel Helwani broke the news earlier that day that he would be cutting ties with UFC on Fox, meaning that he would no longer be appearing on UFC Tonight.
I wanted to let you know that I've parted ways with the UFC on FOX. That means I'll no longer be appearing (cont) https://t.co/0s5UIeaHYw

The news sent shockwaves across the MMA world with some reporters suggesting that Ariel was fired for reporting the news that the Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz rematch was a done deal, a move which the UFC was apparently unhappy with.
Well, during his appearance on the show during the week Nate Diaz responded in typical Diaz fashion, catching the UFC Tonight crew completely off guard.
Diaz was quizzed about all things McGregor from the Notorious’ trademark acerbic tongue to what weight he hopes to fight the featherweight champion at in the rumoured rematch.
However, Diaz asked one question during the broadcast that the UFC Tonight crew didn’t seem to know how to respond to.
