Nick Diaz might actually make a comeback this year given all the signs. But there is a new dilemma for the superstar whether to make his return in the octagon or the boxing ring. It is no headline that MMA stars want to step into the boxing ring these days. The Diaz brother’s coach Cesar Gracie spoke to MMA Fighting over text message and revealed that the superstar is open to anything.
Gracie said that his team is targeting a return this September for Nick. “We were looking at September,” Gracie told the MMA reporters. “I have to see where he is in his contract. It is possible that his next fight will not be in the UFC.” Even UFC President Dana White hinted that the former welterweight legend will make a comeback in 2021. His team is also looking for the possibility of Nick Diaz being a free agent.
