Nate Diaz – the UFC’s anti-hero made his Octagon return after three long years and defeated former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision at the co-main event of UFC 241 in Anaheim, California.
The fans definitely missed the Stockton native who shocked the world three-years ago at UFC 196, when he submitted UFC’s cash cow and Irish superstar Conor McGregor in Las Vegas, Nevada. Following his victory, Diaz called out the ‘East Coast Gangster’ Jorge Masvidal for a fight next.
However, during the post-fight press conference, Diaz was also asked about former UFC interim champion Colby Covington, who is also UFC’s most controversial figures because of his repeated support for US President Donald Trump. Surprisingly, Nate Diaz was unaware of who Covington was.
"Colby Covington was over there…"
"Who is he? What weight?"
"I don't know who that is."

“Who? Who is it? What weight? I don’t know who that is,” Diaz said. “So like, if we have somebody good to fight, that’s who I want to fight. That’s what I’m saying.
“If you’ve been here for two weeks and you have a little hype show, I don’t give a sh*t.”
Colby Covington appeared on camera but he got no love from the crowd as they all together started chanting ‘Colby Sucks, Colby Sucks’ inside the Honda Center.
