UFC working on a big fight for Nate Diaz
In an interview with themaclife.com, UFC president Dana White has revealed that the UFC is working on a big fight for one of the company's biggest stars, Nate Diaz. Diaz last fought fellow UFC star Jorge Masvidal where he lost via doctor stoppage.
Dana White tells me he's working on a fight for Nate Diaz at lightweight: "It would put him in a really good position if he won the fight and the guy who he could potentially be fighting, I think it's a great fight for him too."— Oscar Willis (@oscarswillis) January 13, 2021
No names have been revealed as of yet around who Diaz's next opponent but fans have already been speculating. The one name which keeps getting fantasy booked by UFC fans is a bout with Tony Ferguson. The fight would be an absolute barn burner and would surely be a pay-per-view headliner. Who would you like to see Diaz fight when he returns to the Octagon?
