Nate Diaz Has A UFC Fight In The Works, Dana White Teases: "You're Gonna Like It"

Dana White has revealed that he is working on a fight for UFC star Nate Diaz and says fans are "gonna like it."

Diaz, 35, hasn't fought since his TKO defeat to Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title at UFC 244 back in November 2019.

But the UFC president is in talks with the Stockton slugger about his comeback and has teased a lightweight showdown for 2021.

When asked if he could make Diaz vs. Tony Ferguson, White replied: "We're working on a Nate Diaz fight right now.

"And it is not Tony, but if we get it done, I think you're gonna like it."

The Mac Life's Oscar Willis continued to press White and questioned whether Diaz would return at welterweight or lightweight.

White said: "Lightweight - 55."
