Nate Diaz, the UFC’s prodigal son, is returning to the advertising.
The longtime fan-favorite will fill 50 percent of the hole that’s been a frustrating existence in the UFC.
Nick, the elder of Stockton, the Diaz brothers of California, has not competed in MMA since January 2015. It is nice to have the planet’s leading martial arts company is rejoined by one of those siblings that are no-nonsense.
The competition for his comeback fight of diaz is Anthony Pettis, your UFC lightweight champion. He’ll hope this one endings better than his final bout within the Octagon.
Diaz’s last bout led to what you might refer to as a”lose-win scenario” for the today 34-year-old.
By the most narrow of decisions, the Cesar Gracie BJJ black belt dropped in his rematch with Conor McGregor in UFC 202. Disappointing, convinced, but at least he must wipe the tears off his face with a cool $13 million in his purse and earnings that were pay-per-view.
Of course he wanted a while off.
Now the UFC boy will probably focus on Pettis and also a chance to re-establish himself in the sport.
As with his last two bouts against McGregor, this one will be scrapped at welterweight. While Pettis is 1-0 in the UFC at welterweight following an unbelievable win over Stephen Thompson in March, diaz is 2-3 in his last five fights in 170 lbs.
What a fight we’ve got in store.
