Manager claims “99.9 percent chance” Nick Diaz makes comeback next year

"The guys have been training, he has been training for at least four months straight"

Fans of Nick Diaz rejoice, for it seems that the popular fighter and former Strikeforce champion is gearing up for a 2021 comeback. This is not based on rumours or speculation, however, it’s coming directly from Diaz’ manager Kevin Mubenga, who says that the former has been training hard over the past months. This is in preparation for a return to MMA.

“The guys have been training, he has been training for at least four months straight… We were two months in by that time, that was August or September where he was going two months hard,” Mubenga said of Diaz on his Fight Game Chronicles podcast, which has since been removed from public view. “Now, we are in December, so, he is four or five months in. But, he took a little break because he didn’t want to train and over exhaust it. Took a little break last month and now we are going to pick it back up in December. And, go into the New Year with a deal done and make sure the money is right and the opponent is right and we will be able to move forward. That is all it is.”

When asked about the chances of Diaz returning next year, Mubenga gave fans much of what they wanted to hear.

“Percent next year? 99.9 percent chance,” he added.

These sentiments simply echo what has already been speculated. In September of this year a video was released showing Diaz in great shape, having completed a test weight cut.

Diaz hasn’t competed since January of 2015, when he lost a unanimous decision to Anderson Silva. That loss was overturned to a No Contest though, after that Silva tested positive for banned substances.
