UFC 241 Result: Nate Diaz Beats Anthony Pettis After Three-Year Layoff

Round one was all Diaz who gained top control after taking the fight to the mat. Pettis, though, brilliantly attacked Diaz's lead leg with vicious leg-kicks.

Round two saw Diaz implement his trademark pressure. He stalked Pettis, pressuring him against the fence where he landed short yet stinging shots.

Pettis faded in round three with Diaz landing several knees while attempting submissions on the ground as he earned a decision victory on his return.

In his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, Diaz called out Jorge Masvidal who beat Ben Askren in July.

"The reason I was off is cause everybody sucked and there was nobody to fight," Diaz said to Rogan. "With this belt, I want to defend it against Jorge Masvidal, he had a good last fight. All respect to the man but there ain't no gangsters in his game anymore.

"I know my man's a gangster but he ain't no west coast gangster."

Diaz improves his record to 21-11 (15-9 UFC) and returns to the win column while Pettis suffers his eighth UFC defeat.

OFFICIAL RESULT: Diaz def. Pettis by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).
