The highly anticipated return of Nate Diaz to the Octagon after three long years ended with him beating Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision. The three judges scored the fight 30-27, 30-27 and 29-28.

This was his first win in over three years. His last victory was against Conor McGregor at UFC 196 in 2016 where Diaz caused a huge upset by submitting the Irishmen in the second third.

Pettis started the fight strong and kept attacking Diaz from the outside. Diaz had a hard time matching Pettis’ tempo, but as gradually the rounds went by Diaz applied pressure that had Pettis completely on backfoot. Diaz then scored a successful takedown and went for the rear-naked choke but Pettis narrowly survived it.

In the third round, Diaz went all in and continued his onslaught. Diaz then landed a huge knee which dropped Pettis and then the Stockton native unleashed his onslaught and hammered Pettis with hard shots. However, Pettis was tough and showed heart which helped him survive the full three-rounds.

After the fight he called out Jorge Masvidal:

Jorge Masvidal had a good last fight, all respect to the man, there ain’t no gangsters in this game but me and him. I know my man’s a gangster but he ain’t no West Coast gangster, you know what I’m saying?
