Despite being 38 years of age, Nate Diaz is still one of the biggest stars in mixed martial arts. The veteran has done a lot in his career, with his two-fight series against Conor McGregor really putting him on the mainstream map. Nowadays, he’s enjoying life away from the UFC, most recently in a boxing match against Jake Paul.

However, the door for a return has always been kept open. Dana White doesn’t appear to have any bad blood, and given the numbers Nate can pull in, it makes a lot of sense. There was even talk of him returning at UFC 300, but it doesn’t appear as if that’s going to happen.

Recently, the promotion announced that they’d be putting on a show at the Sphere in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be UFC 306 and will take place on September 14. In a recent tweet, Diaz has made it crystal clear that he wants to make an appearance at the PPV.

Diaz has spoken

“I’ll be here f*** 300”

As you can imagine, this has got a lot of people talking about who he could face. The obvious answer is Conor McGregor, with fans wanting to see them finish their trilogy that began eight years ago. If the Irishman is too busy with Michael Chandler, it’ll be interesting to see what alternatives the UFC can come up with – if this is a legitimate plan, that is.
