The last time we saw Nate Diaz inside the octagon was back in August 2016 at UFC 202 where he lost in a majority decision to Conor McGregor. It has been almost nine months since then and everyone is wondering what is going on with him. Diaz is one of the most talented and especially entertaining fighters in the UFC. Yesterday Diaz came out of hiding to break the ice on a special edition of the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani.
Let’s see what Twitter’s thoughts were on this.
He has a surprise announcement motherf***ers.https://t.co/mB4qAV1TEM

That's the end of the interview. We are very, VERY lucky to have Nate Diaz in this sport. There's nobody realer. One of a kind. #209

"I'll fight ANYONE! Unless it's Ferguson, or Khabib or an active 155, matter of fact anyone in the UFC. But I'll fight anyone" - Nate Diaz

So as we figured Nate Diaz won't be fighting so why do an hr interview informing us of what we already know.. pic.twitter.com/fI1D2wlbbx

So in conclusion, we still know nothing new that we didn't know before. Not sure why Diaz hasn't fought someone by now and still doesn't want to fight anyone. My only guess is that he got a taste of that good money in his last two fights against McGregor and he doesn't want to go back from there.
