Nick Diaz’s brother Nate returns to the octagon next month
The Diaz brothers are one of the most legendary siblings in the history of the sport of MMA. Though they’ve never laid their hands on the title, they always make sure that they put on a show.
And, the bond, the brothers share is simply awesome. Nate even makes it a point to claim that Nick is the greatest fighter of all time, during ceremonial weigh-in interviews.
With Nick out of action for over 6 years, Nate also had not fought for quite an extended period of time. His last fight was in November 2019 against Jorge Masvidal, for the BMF Title.
And now, Nate is all set to return to the octagon on the 15th of May, this year at UFC 262. He will be taking on Leon Edwards, with the possibility of the winner getting the title shot.
