TUF 5 Tournament Winner Nate Diaz Released Amazing Hype Video Heading Into His Octagon Return Against The Former Lightweight King Anthony Pettis
BJJ black belt Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) didn’t fight since UFC 202 when he lost to Conor McGregor via majority decision. Prior to that, Nate choked out “The Notorious” at UFC 196 and outlasted Michael Johnson at UFC on Fox 17.
He was planned for UFC 230 clash against Dustin Poirier, but UFC boss Dana White wasn’t interested in keeping him on the card after “The Diamond” suffered an injury. But the TUF 5 winner finally returns to the action in the co-main event of UFC 241, on August 17, 2019, where he squares off against Taekwondo/BJJ black belt Anthony Pettis.
It seems Nate Diaz seriously trains, as he looks insanely jacked heading into this contest. Oh, but Nate also released a video on his Instagram profile hyping the bout versus “Showtime”.
The former UFC 155-pound champ Anthony Pettis (22-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC) had ups and downs in his last 3 contests-2 wins, 1 loss.
In his last match, Pettis turned the lights out on Stephen Thompson via amazing Superman punch. Before that, he suffered a TKO loss at the end of the 2nd round against Tony Ferguson (doctor stopped the fight). At UFC 226, Pettis finished Michael Chiesa via triangle armbar.
Nate Diaz and Anthony Pettis have a history, so the co-main event of UFC 241 looks like a perfect chance to settle their beef. What are your thoughts on Nate’s latest hype video?
