It appears Nate Diaz could be walking away from the Octagon once again.

The UFC star appeared to announce Thursday that he's no longer pursuing a rematch with Jorge Masvidal, and hinted that he could be heading for retirement.

"Fuck a rematch this shit was over before it started," Diaz wrote on Instagram. "I'm goin on out on tour. Peace out fight game."

After losing his rematch against Conor McGregor in August 2016, Diaz didn't fight for almost three years before making a triumphant return at UFC 241 by beating Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision.

Diaz then called out Masvidal, and the two fought for the inaugural BMF title in the main event of UFC 244 on Saturday. Masvidal defeated Diaz via doctor's stoppage after the third round due to a cut above the latter's eye.

Following the bout, both fighters said they wanted to run it back, but UFC president Dana White shot down the idea, in part due to Masvidal's dominance on Saturday.

Diaz has consistently said that he'll only take fights that interest him at this point in his career.
