Nate Diaz To Return At UFC 230
After two years away from the Octagon, Nate Diaz will return in the co-main event of UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden.
Diaz, who has not fought since his majority decision loss to Conor McGregor in 2016, will square off with Dustin Poirier in the event’s co- main event on November 3rd.
The fight, first reported by the Los Angeles Times, will be announced officially at Friday’s press conference in Los Angeles.
Diaz, who made $2 million against McGregor in his last fight, has been on the sidelines looking for a major fight and a major payday from the UFC, and gets a top opponent in Poirier. Poirier walks into MSG with a TKO victory over Eddie Alvarez, in their rematch of a controversial no-contest at UFC 211 in 2017.
