Nick Diaz is currently training alongside UFC heavyweight, Derrick Lewis. Of the pictures shared, one shows Diaz and Lewis running alongside one another.
Derrick Lewis (27-11 MMA) last fought and defeated Marcos Rogerio De Lima (21-9 MMA) via TKO in July of this year at UFC 291.
As for whether or not Nick Diaz will re-enter the Octagon, only time will tell, but one this is for sure, with a 6-pack, and looking trim and buff, he’s in perhaps the best shape of his career.
It was earlier this year that Diaz told an ‘Inside Fighting’ reporter:
“I’m asking to fight as soon as possible. Not Jon Jones though… yeah, something like that (Israel Adesanya or Alex Pereira). I always want to fight the best, you know? Not coming at Jon Jones or anything.”
Nick Diaz stepped away from active competition back in 2015 after his no-contest bout with Anderson Silva (34-11 MMA). The fight was deemed a no-contest by the NSAC as both fighters failed drug tests.
Returning to the cage in September of 2021 at UFC 266, Diaz (26-10 MMA) was defeated by Robbie Lawler (30-16 MMA) via TKO in their highly anticipated rematch.
