Fan favorite and Stockton’s own Nate Diaz is expected to finally make his much anticipated return as he is slated to take on former lightweight king Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis in a welterweight bout.
Diaz might have a weird relationship with the UFC, however still UFC on their Instagram profile, uploaded a promo featuring Diaz and some of his best performances. (via Twitter):
The promo featured Diaz’ crisp boxing, his iconic triangle choke and his trademark style of trash talking. Diaz gained spotlight after winning season 5 of the Ultimate Fighter Season 5.
Diaz has not fought since losing a rematch to Conor McGregor by majority decision at UFC 202 back in August 2016. In their first meeting, Diaz defeated McGregor by second-round submission. The rivalry produced two of the most successful pay-per-views in UFC history. Diaz has always been loosely associated with a trilogy against former double champ ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor.
