Nate Diaz has legendary quote about long UFC layoff
Nate Diaz made his long-awaited return to the UFC on Saturday night and reinvigorated his fans in the process.
Diaz defeated Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision at UFC 241 in Anaheim. The fight marked Diaz’s first match since a loss to Conor McGregor on Aug. 20, 2016. After his win, he was asked by UFC commentator Joe Rogan whether he would continue to fight. That’s when Diaz offered a legendary quote about his layoff.
“The reason I was off is because everybody sucks and there was nobody to fight,” Diaz said.

The 34-year-old from Stockton seems to have his eye set on another fight. He called out Jorge Masvidal, who is coming off the fastest win in UFC history.
Diaz is now 20-11 in his pro MMA career. Beyond facing Masvidal, a third fight with McGregor would make sense at some point in the future.
Is there any wonder why Nate is a fan-favorite?
