Nate Diaz returned to the Octagon at UFC 241 and he conquered, dominating Anthony Pettis en route to a unanimous decision victory (30-27, 30-27, 29-28). Diaz, who hadn't fought since 2016, put the pressure on Pettis early and often, roughing up the former UFC Lightweight Champion in the clinch and getting the better of the grappling exchanges.
Here's how UFC fighters reacted to Nate's successful return.
I almost cashed out at +1600 on Nate finishing Pettis in the 3rd. Good lawd that was a fun fight regardless. #ufc241— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) August 18, 2019
