The latest chapter in the ongoing saga between UFC president Dana White and the Diaz brothers is in the books.

Nate Diaz, the lightweight contender who has been sitting on the sidelines since last fall, took to Twitter on Monday to take a pointed, if not necessarily erudite, swipe at the UFC and Donald Cerrone.

"Some people just suck way too much UFC d--," Diaz tweeted. "An they where cowboy hats."

On Tuesday, White used his platform on UFC.com to swing back at Stockton native.

"Nate can do whatever he wants to do," White said. "Nate can sit out and not suck any UFC whatever, for as long as he wants to. Who cares, he's a grown man. Sit out for as long as you want, sit out the rest of your career, it's your decision. But to start making fun of guys who actually like to fight, and guys who go out there and put on unbelievable fights and people love to see him? [Cowboy] steps up and does what he does. People love ‘Cowboy' Cerrone."

Diaz and older brother Nick have been on the sidelines for awhile. In Nate's case, he wants a better contract than he has; Nick Diaz has stated he is retired, although he is willing to return for the right fight at the right price.

Cerrone, who headlines Wednesday's Ultimate Fight Night card against Jim Miller, lost to Diaz via unanimous decision at UFC 141. Cerrone has won three straight fights and earned post-fight bonuses in each. His fight with Miller will mark his third this year and his fifth in the past 11 months.
