Get ready ladies and gentlemen because UFC superstar, Nate Diaz, is returning to the octagon coming this December according to his Instagram. Diaz’s last loss was to welterweight, Leon Edwards, in June at UFC 263.
Diaz is known for cryptically wording ambiguos tweets. He’s recently called out Dustin Poirier via social media and Poirier engaged in the back and forth. There are several high profile fights out there for Diaz in December. There’s the possibility of the Poirier fight, as well as fights with Jorge Masvidal, Gilbert Burns, and Vicente Luque.
“It remains to be seen who will end up as the most likely opponent, but Diaz is already preparing for a fight with every intention of competing in December” (MMA Fighting). The UFC has not officially released a scheduled fight for Diaz.
There’s no denying the draw of Nate Diaz. He’s a marketing goldmine; the perfect storm of credibility and “golden days” UFC legitimacy.
