Nate Diaz has released a video that appears to be hyping up a potential return to the cage in 2021. Diaz posted the below video to Instagram which features highlights of some of his fights and concludes with the words “2021” on the screen.
The title of the video “Round 4” may indicate he’d like to run it back with Jorge Masvidal. Diaz vs Masvidal was stopped after the 3rd round at UFC 244 when doctors ruled Diaz could no longer continue.
