Nate Diaz is back after over 1000 days of not fighting inside the Octagon. He is all set to face off against Anthony Pettis at UFC 241 where he would be involved in the co-main event. However, while Diaz is back for one more match in the company, one can only wonder if this is his final match with the UFC?
Given that he has been around since 2004, Diaz has been fighting for about 15 years and his body has taken a lot of battering. At age 34, one wonders how long he can go on for.
Ufc 241 predictions:
– Daniel Cormier retains the Heavyweight strap. There’s talk about 1 more dance. Ends up retiring and vacating belt.
– Nate Diaz finishes Anthony Pettis, by submission.
– Yoel Romero knocks out Paulo Costa with a roundhouse to the head.
– DB wins by TKO

Is This Nate Diaz’s Last Match?
This might very well be Diaz’s last match in the UFC, especially if he loses. Given that Diaz has a vicious streak where he likes to batter their opponent and split them open, the violent fighter is a feared name. However, what one can’t deny is that he has been away for a long time and might have gathered some ‘ring rust’. Is he still as good as he used to be?
Diaz vs Pettis might lead to his retirement, but a win for Nate Diaz means a shot at Conor McGregor, perhaps this is how he would prefer bowing out.
Will We Get Diaz vs McGregor III?
Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor III is a fight that fans of both the men want. Given that Diaz won their first fight and McGregor the second, a third match between the two would decide who takes the glory.
Conor is going to beat Nate Diaz at end of year, then lose to Khabib in 2020, then retire (or other way around)
….then he will get more stinky rich boxing a Paul Malignaggi. 😂🤷🏻♂️👀
