Myles Jury accepts fight against Nate Diaz ... who won't answer the phone

Covey leader calling Diaz ... talk to me Nate.

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Let's do the limbo!

Surging Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight prospect Myles Jury has been offered a fight against former division number one contender Nate Diaz, a 155-pound showdown he gladly accepts. But negotiating with Diaz, as Anthrax so eloquently puts it, is like clapping with one hand.

According to Fury, there hasn't been a peep from the 209.

Get in line.

Jury is not the only one hoping to pick a fight with Diaz, who has been riding the pine since planishing Gray Maynard last November. UFC President Dana White insists he's been trying to get Nate -- as well as his older bother Nick -- back inside the cage, but to no avail.

It's all about the Benjamins and if the check-writer can't get Diaz to sign on the dotted line, in lieu of a new conned-tract, then what possible hope does Jury have?
