Nate Diaz won his first fight back in UFC! He had been away from the action for three years but managed to score a comprehensive win over Anthony Pettis at the co-main event of UFC 241. Diaz challenged Jorge Masvidal after his fight – but this sets up many questions – is a Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor III rematch still possible?
While Diaz challenged Masvidal, the fight is yet to be confirmed. It will be made official during a UFC press conference that happens in the future. Once that date is known, McGregor might just wait till the Diaz vs Masvidal match happens and then challenge Diaz for a Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor III Rematch!
Diaz-McGregor III is gonna be huge.

Diaz vs McGregor III: Is It Going to Happen?
This is a ‘dream match’ of sorts as it has already happened twice. The first one, where McGregor lost to Nate Diaz was at UFC 196. The second match between the two took place at UFC 202 where McGregor won. However, a third Nate Diaz vs Conor McGregor match is a prospect that really excites people and might happen at UFC 250!
That is, of course, considering that Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov II does not happen by then! For McGregor, priorities are pretty clear!

What to Expect from Diaz vs Masvidal?
Diaz vs Masvidal is expected to be a match that can go in any man’s favor! But the same was somehow expected from Diaz vs Pettis too! We expect that Diaz will be able to defeat Masvidal – though the match would be a really close call and might even end up being a draw!
