It is one of the most often questions for the upcoming UFC 230. If the thing goes smoothly, Nate Diaz will fight against Dustin Poirier in the co-main event of the UFC 230. When we talk about Diaz for the upcoming fight, it is possible to happen.
Last week we saw his appearance at the press conference, Diaz intended to say that he was not interested in fighting at UFC 230, although he did not explicitly speak about his content. Rumors also imply that the UFC delivered the message to Diaz and Poirier that they would be the co-main event of the UFC 229 that features Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, these two incredible fighters will move to the UFC 230, which affect the titles of the UFC card that will change the PPV situation.
Left the rumor aside, none of us know exactly about what happened during the negotiation between the promoters and Diaz manager. We also don’t remember what he promised, and he wasn’t. But with a long history from the man, nobody would know if Diaz is going to show up at the UFC 230. Not to mention that there still ample time before the UFC 230 happens. That means there will be a lot of time to consider the determination.
We can also look at the upcoming bout between McGregor and NUrmagomedov. The result will also influence Diaz appearance in the UFC 230. For instance, let’s play some scenario. If McGregor wins in such a great fight, there’s a chance that the UFC will hold the rematch.
Although it is not the fact, we can imagine if Diaz can win over Poirier, there’ll be a chance that he will get the third meetup against McGregor. He didn’t get it, anyway. But, he did attain the slot to fight against Poirier. We will never know what the UFC told Diaz. But one thing for sure, if Diaz has no choice left, he would likely fill the undercard of McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov.
The good news for the UFC and their fans is that Diaz needs to make a nice paycheck. It is a sensible reason for the sportsman who has been on the sidelines for over twenty-four months. So, even though he is not on the same card as McGregor, it is sensible that he will show up at the UFC 230.
Diaz’s comeback is not only the interest for the UFC but also the big fans who have been rooting for the fighter. Meanwhile, the UFC is pretty confident to convince Diaz to make his comeback at the UFC 230. After all, the soldier needs to forge his passion again after resting for a while. So, instead of putting Diaz below the MacGregor card, UFC might strive to build two PPV cards. As experts predicted, this decision might not make Diaz satisfied with it. But it will indeed make the UFC fortune. Not to mention that it will be the beautiful spectacle that will satisfy the cravings of Diaz’s fans. If you are the big fan of Diaz, you will agree that it is exciting to see your favorite fighter makes his return to the octagon for featuring the Main Event.
Again, the speculation above is just speculation.
The last fight of Nate Diaz was not satisfying. He lost to his best rival Conor McGregor. After failing to McGregor at the UFC 202, he has not made a single appearance in the Octagon competitive matches for almost two years now. Regardless of the speculation about his debut in the UFC 230, we can be sure that he is going to make his return. Moreover, we have received the confirmation that he is going to square off against Dustin Poirier, the lightweight contender.
UFC 230 is going to be a high-profile spectacle since it features high-profile fighters as well. Eight of the prominent soldiers will make the card fantastic. There are some names like Chris Weidman, Luke Rockhold, who is the ex-champion of Middleweight division. The UFC 230 will take place on November the third at Madison Square Garden. If you are the fan of one of the fighters, make sure to tune in the private option to watch the spectacle.
