What Happened at UFC 241?

At UFC 241 Nate Diaz shut his critics up as he proved that he is still as good as he once used to be. He returned and defeated Anthony Pettis at their Diaz vs Pettis co-main event. Diaz was well in control for almost the entirety of the match and Pettis looked gassed out towards the end of it.

Diaz won the match after the third round via unanimous decision. While many expected that he would be slower on his return or would have ‘ring rust’, they were all proved wrong by his impressive and dominating display last night.
