Earlier this month, Nate Diaz took to Social Media to announce that he was taking a hiatus from the sport of Mixed Martial Arts after coming off of a loss to Jorge Masvidal in the biggest fight of the year.
“F—k a rematch this s—t was over before it started. I’m goin on out on tour. Peace out fight game.” Diaz wrote across all his social media platforms. Many fans assumed that he had retired from the sport.
But in a recent interview with ESPN, Diaz refuted those claims.
“Who said I was retired?” Diaz told ESPN. “I’ll fight tonight.”
Nate Diaz recently uploaded an image on Twitter where he shared an exact instance where he said Jorge Masvidal wanted out of the fight.

“This is the time in the fight where him and I realized he didn’t wanna be in this fight anymore,” Diaz wrote.
Nate Diaz came from a three-year hiatus in August earlier this year at UFC 241 where he defeated the former lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis, via unanimous decision. Before that, he fought in a rematch against Conor McGregor at UFC 202, where he lost via split decision.
