UFC 241 featured an absolute barn burner of a co-main event as fan favorite Nate Diaz made his much anticipated return after three years to take former lightweight champ Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis at welterweight.

Diaz once again illustrated the fact that ‘ring rust does not matter’ as he outclassed #7 ranked Pettis for a lopsided unanimous decision. Pettis, just like other fighters, solely had the strategy of capitalizing on Diaz’s vulnerability for absorbing leg kicks. However Pettis injured his own leg while doing so, which restricted him from kicking. The injury therefore allowed Diaz to cash in.

Pettis showed tremendous heart when Diaz had him in some bad positions which probably would have resulted in a finish. That obviously wasn’t good enough to win the fight. Pettis is now 1-1 in the super stacked UFC welterweight division. Pettis had came of a brutal second round TKO win over former two-time title challenger Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson.

Pettis would be hoping on recovering, going back to drawing board and fighting soon.
