Dana White is hoping to get Nate Diaz back again inside the Octagon this year.
Diaz fought two occasions in 2019, with an August get about Anthony Pettis, adopted by a TKO reduction to Jorge Masvidal in November. On the other hand, in 2020, the Stockton native, did not combat at all, but the hope for White is Diaz returns someday this yr.
“I hope (he fights this calendar year),” White explained during a recent ESPN+ admirer Q&A with Laura Sanko. “I hope so. I’d like to see him struggle. I’m not counting on it, but I’d like to see him struggle.”
If Nate Diaz does combat in 2021 he would likely be in line for a huge battle. He has referred to as for a rematch with Masvidal or the trilogy with Conor McGregor. On the other hand, White does not consider the trilogy with McGregor will come about this year.
“Probably not,” White said.
Nate Diaz is currently 20-12 as a pro and 3-2 in his very last 5. However, he is a admirer beloved and is constantly in fascinating fights. There is no problem Diaz will will need to be paid out appropriately and will only return for a big fight. For White, all those are likely hurdles as to why Diaz would not combat in 2021.
