Dana White said we have not seen the last of Nate Diaz in the UFC.
The 35-year-old has not fought since losing to Jorge Masvidal in the BMF title fight last November.
A trilogy fight with Conor McGregor has been mooted despite the Irish star being officially retired.
He could also have a rematch with Masvidal but he is coming off a defeat to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman last weekend.
The Stockton Slugger denied he would be retiring from the sport despite a cryptic tweet after the loss to Gamebred where he said ‘peace out fight game’.
UFC president Dana White was confident we would see him back in the Octagon again.
when quizzed over whether Diaz would come back, White told Yahoo Sports: “Oh, definitely. Definitely.
“I think Nate will fight (in the UFC) again.”
Diaz is accustomed to long absences from MMA as there were three years between his loss to McGregor and his win over Anthony Pettis in August 2019.
He has a professional record of 20-12 and has been in the UFC ever since he won the fifth season of The Ultimate Fighter back in 2007.
