UFC welterweight veteran, Nick Diaz hasn’t fought in the UFC in over three years.
Earlier this week, USADA announced that Nick Diaz accepted a one-year suspension for missing three out of competition drug tests within a 12-month span, retroactive to his third miss on April 19, 2017 – which means he’s eligible to return to UFC Octagon next week.
And it looks like the Stockton Slapper has every intention of finally returning to competition in the UFC.
Nick Diaz who hasn’t fought since a unanimous decision loss to Anderson Silva at UFC 183 back in 2015. The result was overturned to a “no contest” after ‘The Spider’ tested positive for steroids and Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites. He took to social media this morning and shared the following photo along with the subtitle, “Back where we left off.”
Promotion head Dana White told TMZ Sports a few months back that the Stockton slugger Nick Diaz is ‘interested in fighting right now.’ So now it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the fan favorite return to the UFC in a headlining or co-headlining bout.
If Nick Diaz plans to return to action, who do you want to see him fight next?
