Paul, 26, was beaten for the first time in February, losing a split-decision in Saudi Arabia to Tommy Fury, 23.
He then snubbed a rematch to instead turn his attention to Diaz, 38, who left the UFC last year when his contract expired.
Paul said: “Nate Diaz was always the plan. I’ve always said – even in the Tommy Fury build up – that I wanted Nate Diaz after Tommy.
“And that really was regardless of the outcome, I’ve always wanted to fight Nate Diaz, so he was always next on my list.
“There’s always a bunch of options and one day you’re like, ‘I want to do this, I want to do that.’
“But I went back to the Nate Diaz idea as like the original plan and he was ready and wiling to make the fight happen and it just made more sense than the Tommy Fury rematch right away.”
