Don't get too excited about Nick Diaz's return to the UFC just yet.

A day after Cesar Gracie told that UFC president Dana White had offered Diaz a return UFC fight, White told on Thursday the opposite.

"Nobody at the UFC talked to Gracie or anyone else that reps Nick," White wrote via text message.

In response to a text message asking who the UFC offered Diaz, Gracie told Wednesday night, "Can't tell you."

Diaz said he was leaving MMA after his March loss to Georges St-Pierre, unless he was offered a rematch against St-Pierre or a fight against Anderson Silva. However, White said earlier this month following UFC 162 that Diaz has leaning towards returning to the UFC.

The 29-year-old Diaz (26-9, 1 NC) is 1-2 since returning to the UFC in 2011.
