Nate Diaz Returns After Three Years
The last fight that Diaz had inside the octagon was in a losing effort against Conor McGregor. McGregor vs Diaz II saw McGregor’s hand being raised at the end. Following that Diaz went on a three-year break but had shown active signs of returning over the years. Finally, he decided to face Anthony Pettis at UFC 241.
Nate Diaz is bound to have gathered some ‘ring rust’ over the years and his fans, while they still love and support him, are eager to find out if he still has that hunger which used to drive him forward. Diaz is still a feared name in the UFC and it will be interesting to see if he is able to unleash hell on his opponent at UFC 241.
Some stats about Nate Diaz that will make his upcoming fight interesting:
– 4.64 strikes landed per minute
– 3.69 absorbed per minute
– 54% defense
