Nate Diaz will make his UFC return this weekend (Sun. February 17, 2019).
However, it won’t be as a competitor. Diaz will be cornering Kron Gracie for his UFC debut at this week’s UFC on ESPN 1 in Phoenix, Arizona. ESPN’s Greg Rosenstein broke the news on Twitter:
“Nate Diaz will be cornering Kron Gracie this weekend at UFC Fight Night: Phoenix, per @GilbertMelendez. Gracie faces Alex Caceres in his UFC debut.”
He’ll corner Gracie, who is undefeated at 4-0 thus far in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. Gracie will face UFC veteran Alex Caceres, who has lost three of his last five UFC fights. His last fight this past July resulted in a split decision win over Martin Bravo.
