Nate Diaz remains one of the most legitimate fighters to have ever stepped foot inside the Octagon. Diaz last competed against Jorge Masvidal for the “BMF” title at UFC 244 back in November 2019. He lost the match via doctor’s stoppage, but he is far from finished in the fight game. Diaz also has lofty ambitions after retiring from MMA.
At UFC 263, Nate Diaz finally made his return to the Octagon as he squared off against Leon Edwards. Unfortunately for Diaz, his return didn’t quite go the way that he wanted to as Diaz lost the fight. Nate Diaz had also made it clear that he wants to compete in the Octagon again within the next few months.
Many fans also wonder what will become of Nate Diaz in the UFC as he only has one more match left in his contract. It was then said that he is likely to sign a new contract with the UFC.
While speaking on the Weighing-In podcast, Josh Thomson stated that he believes Nate Diaz will not sign another contract with the UFC once his current contract expires.
“I don’t think he’s [Diaz is] gonna resign. I think he’s gonna ride off into the sunset and do his own thing. He’s got kids now, man, he’s trying to do what Kayla Harrison’s doing. Just make that money so his kids don’t ever have to work again. Smart play by Nate.”
Nate Diaz also recently accused Dana White of slow-rolling his last fight. We will have to wait and see whether Diaz will stick with the UFC by signing a new contract or not in the end.
