Nate Diaz, the UFC son, is returning to the promotion.

The elder of Stockton, nick, the Diaz brothers of California, hasn’t competed because January 2015 in MMA. It is nice to have one of the siblings that are no-nonsense rejoin the planet’s leading martial arts business.
Diaz’s opponent because of his comeback struggle is Anthony Pettis, the UFC lightweight champion. He will be expecting this one endings better.
Diaz’s last bout led to what you could refer to as a”lose-win scenario” for the now 34-year-old.
In his rematch with Conor McGregor at UFC 202, the Cesar Gracie BJJ black belt lost by the narrowest of conclusions. Disappointing, convinced, but he got to wash the tears off his face with a cool $13 million in his purse and earnings that were pay-per-view.
