Nate Diaz will be making an entry in the UFC after 3 years. After the comeback, Nate Diaz will be fighting with Anthony Pettis in the UFC-241 co-main event. The match will be held in Anaheim, California. Nate Diaz had his last fight in 2016 with Conor McGregor. The fight is scheduled on 17th August.
Nate Diaz would have come back a month early as the UFC decided to put Nate Diaz against Dustin Poirier at UFC 230. But Dustin Poirier got an injury due to which the match was cancelled. Instead of replacing the opponent the UFC cancelled the match. The news was announced by Dana white on social media.
Despite the fact, Nate Diaz was out for so long, but he still holds popularity amongst the fans. A win against Anthony Pettis will not make boost Nate Diaz’s position for the title of lightweight. But it will surely increase the fanbase for the player.
Anthony Pettis, on the other hand, will be coming after having one of the biggest wins of his career as he had defeated Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson past this March.
