 Nate Diaz vs. Anthony Pettis Set For Co-Main Event Of UFC 241!

It seems Nate Diaz still in USADA testing pool was for all good reasons.

Nate Diaz hasn’t fought since his UFC 202 bout against Conor McGregor, which he lost via majority decision.

There were rumors of his return in the past, but it seems Nate will fight in the 170-pound match against the former WEC and UFC king Anthony “Showtime” Pettis at the co-main event of UFC 241 on August 17th. Pettis last squared off against Stephen Thompson at UFC Fight Night 148 and finished the bout via brutal KO.

The event is headlined by the rematch between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.

Look at Dana White’s social media posts.
