Nate Diaz, the UFC’s prodigal son, is currently returning to the advertising.
The fan-favorite that is longtime will fill 50 percent of the gap that’s been a presence in the UFC.
Nick, the elder of Stockton, the Diaz brothers of California, hasn’t competed because January 2015 in MMA. It is great to have one of those no-nonsense siblings rejoin the planet’s leading martial arts business.
The opponent because of his comeback struggle of diaz is Anthony Pettis, the former UFC winner. He will hope this one ends better than his last bout inside the Octagon.
Diaz’s last bout led to what you might refer to as a”lose-win situation” for the today 34-year-old.
By the narrowest of conclusions, the Cesar Gracie BJJ black belt dropped in his highly anticipated 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 earnings and his combined purse.
No wonder he wanted a little time off.
Now the UFC boy will soon be focusing on Pettis and also an opportunity to re-establish himself.
Like his last two bouts against McGregor, this one will be scrapped at welterweight. Diaz is 2-3 in his last five fights at 170 pounds while Pettis is 1-0 in the UFC at welterweight after an incredible win over Stephen Thompson in March.
What a fight we’ve got in store.
