UFC superstar Nate Diaz has not competed inside the octagon since back in 2016. That being said, the Stockton native is now set to make his big octagon return. Now the mixed martial arts world has come forward with a reaction to the news.

Nate Diaz most recently entered a two fight heated rivalry with Ireland native Conor McGregor. Diaz choked out “Notorious” on short notice in their first match up, with McGregor earning a majority decision victory in the rematch.

Now, however, Nate Diaz is set to face off against tough lightweight contender Dustin Poirier. The two fighters will throw down for the co-main event of UFC 230.
