Nick Diaz advertises tickets to UFC return

With Nick Diaz already advertising VIP tickets, it seems a return to the UFC may be looming over the horizon 

Is Nick Diaz actually making a return to the UFC? By all of his own accounts it certainly seems that way.

While there has been unsubstantiated talk of his return, nothing has been set in stone. However, in conjunction with Nick’s brother Nate Diaz losing via TKO to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244, a fire seems to have ignited in the older Diaz brother.


In a post dating back to last week on Instagram, Diaz advertised a contest in which fans can win VIP tickets to his “UFC return”.

“WANT TO WIN VIP TICKETS TO MY UFC RETURN,” Diaz asks in the post, then giving instructions on how to enter the contest to win tickets to his supposed return.

However, there is no more exact information in regards to where and when this supposed return will be. Despite this, there have been indications as to where and when Diaz would prefer to return.

Diaz Manager Keving Mubenga later told ESPN that they are targeting a return to the UFC in spring 2020, ideally at AT&T Stadium in Arrlington, Texas – Home of the Dallas Cowboys. “You know, it’s on you Dana,” Diaz said, referring to UFC president Dana White. “It’s on you, UFC. … that’s on them. It’s in your hands now. Cowboy Stadium.”

The most desired opponent is undoubtedly Masvidal, though it remains to be seen if that fight materialises. Masvidal may very well be the next title challenger at welterweight, leaving Diaz, potentially, without an opponent.

Who do you want to see Nick Diaz return against?
