UFC chief Dana White adamant Nate Diaz will return to Octagon despite lengthy absence

DANA WHITE insists Nate Diaz will “definitely” fight again inside UFC’s Octagon.

The hugely popular Stockton Slugger has not competed since he lost via TKO against Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title in November last year.

There is plenty of speculation over who Diaz could face when or if he returns to the cage.

Rumours of a rematch against Gamebred have been mounting.

And speculation that a trilogy fight between him and arch-rival Conor McGregor has certainly whipped up a frenzy among fans.

Despite all the various reports, nothing has yet been booked for Diaz.

The 35-year-old continues to sit on the sidelines with supporters desperately waiting to see what is next for the star.

But when quizzed over whether Diaz would come back by Yahoo Sports, UFC’s President was fully confident we would see him again.

He said: “Oh, definitely. Definitely. 

“I think Nate will fight (in the UFC) again.”

Despite his loss to Masvidal, Diaz picked up a dominant decision win over Anthony Pettis at UFC 241 last August.

He remains one of the biggest draws in UFC and would have a queue of opponents wanting to face him.

That should give him plenty of options to compete again at either 170lbs or 155lbs.
