It's almost like he never left. Nate Diaz returned to the Octagon in UFC 241 against Anthony Pettis, and was able to survive quite the threat from the 32-year-old. Yet, Diaz made more of an impression on the judges in the end, and won by unanimous decision.
Much was made about the supposed rust in Diaz' game, as his sabbatical was unexpected and at times many wondered if he'd ever fight again. Yet, now that he's back, the 34-year-old doesn't have any intention of relinquishing his status in the sport anytime soon.
Yeah, that's right. Diaz wants Masvidal.
Diaz was especially emotional post-fight, dropping the NSFW language he's known for. The California native has never been known to hold back before, and he certainly won't moving forward.
Give Pettis credit, as he challenged Diaz in his first fight back. But now that we got that out of the way, let's hope Masvidal was listening.
