UFC star Nick Diaz is set to make his return in 2021
The UFC world was left in shock as Nick Diaz was planning to return in action in 2021.
The 37-year-old hasn’t fought since 2015 when he took on Anderson Silva. However, the older Diaz brother shared some photos on social media and claimed he was returning to action next year.
That caught the attention of the fans and some have predicted who he should fight next. While there is no clarity on Nick Diaz and his next fight, the brothers are doing their bit to stay in top shape.
Recently, Nick and his brother, Nate, Diaz were seen working out together. Nick does seem to be in excellent shape and looked ripe while Nate seems to be in great touch too.
Comeback Season 2️⃣0️⃣9️⃣

Ready for the return
Nick returning to the UFC would be a big deal, even if he hasn’t fought in half a decade. He still is a big name and pairing him up with a quality fighter could lead to a lot of PPV buys.
Nate, for his part, hasn’t fought since losing to Jorge Masvidal in 2019. That was one of the greatest fights in the history of the UFC and Masvidal won the BMF belt. However, the fight was stopped after a gruesome cut to Nate’s eye and he is keen on a rematch against Gamebred.
The Diaz brothers are also a couple of the toughest MMA stars out there, and the pair being back together could be fun.
Many UFC fans were already salivating at the return of Nate and these pictures saw several reactions from them.

I hate to say it, but I'll believe it when I see it. If it TRULY is the comeback season though, I'm excited for it. Would love to see what Nick can do after being gone for so long.

It took a whole quarantine/pandemic to bring Nick Diaz out of retirement.
That man is extremely bored.
