UFC 241 this weekend at Honda Center in Anaheim, California, will feature a probable people’s main event as fan favorite Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) will make his much anticipated return to take former lightweight champ Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis (22-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC) at welterweight.

Diaz will make his comeback after almost three years, since his unanimous loss against double champ Conor McGregor at UFC 202 back in August 2016. However, the hiatus does not seem to have affected his physique as Diaz looks in absolute top notch shape ahead of his fight. (via Twitter):

Diaz will be fighting at welterweight, a class above where he normally fights, hence he would be even more rejuvenated. Diaz has went on to claim that he never completely understood the term ‘fight camp’ as he’s in shape and trains hard pretty much throughout the year.

Diaz was slated to fight current interim lightweight champion Dustin ‘The Diamond’ Poirier at UFC 230 last year in November. However that fight could not happen as Poirier pulled out of the fight citing a hip injury. Diaz also is an active participant in Triathlons, which keep him in razor sharp shape.
