Nick Diaz is not the only one who is planning to make his octagon return. Nate Diaz is also likely to fight Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title rematch in 2019. Nate Diaz last fought at UFC 244 against Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title.
It was one of the biggest fights of last year. And the anticipation was at its highest among the fans leading up to the fight. However, the match ended in an anti-climax as Jorge Masvidal won the fight via doctor’s stoppage.
Neither Masvidal nor Diaz was happy with the ending. Nate Diaz wanted to go the distance against The Gamebred. And Jorge Masvidal wanted to a baptize Diaz, a comment that pissed of Nick Diaz. The Stockton’s finest, Nick Diaz even issued a warning after Masvidal’s comments on his younger brother Nate Diaz.
Well, that might lead to a potential fight between Masvidal and Nick if Nate does not end up fighting the BMF. If not Masvidal then there are plenty of other super fights ahead of Nick.
The huge money fight with Conor McGregor, the rematch with Carlos Conditt or Robbie Lawler, the battle of the BMFs with Donald Cerrone, any fight UFC decides to make with Nick it can’t just go wrong. Nick Diaz has never disappointed the fans when it comes to entertainment and that’s what the fans will be expecting if he returns.
