Nate Diaz hasn’t been much of an active fighter as of late, with his last bout being a decision loss to UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor at UFC 202.
However, it would appear that the Stockton native is back in the gym and training, but what he is training for remains the big question.
Diaz posted the following image on Instagram:

Although Diaz is shown training with boxing gloves, no indication has been given that he’s entering the boxing ring anytime soon. Diaz has applied for a boxing license in the state of Nevada, with that process starting almost a year ago.
The TUF champion hasn’t always had the best of relationships with the UFC, recently calling UFC President Dana White a bitch. Diaz had long been rumored for a third fight with the UFC Lightweight Champion, but nothing has ever come to fruition.
There could also be a title shot in the fighter's future because he has also previously stated that UFC President Dana White offered him a title shot in every weight class the UFC has, which tops out at eight.
