Nate Diaz reveals the only two 'worthy' opponents that would see him return to the octagon

It's now been over a year since Nate Diaz entered the UFC octagon, and the 37-year-old only sees two opponents worthy of facing him.

It's been over a year since Nate Diaz last fought in the UFC, and three years since his last win.

Diaz fought and lost to Leon Edwards in UFC 263 back in June 2021, and suffered a similar fate against Jorge Masvidal in 2019.

But the 37-year-old has still not called time on his fighting career, and is eyeing up one final fight.

However, if it is to happen, Diaz insists it'll have to be against someone who has done "something great".

As it stands, the California-born fighter only sees two possible opponents on that level.

"The only worthy opponents they have here for me is f***ing Francis Ngannou or Israel Adesanya," Diaz said.

"With all due respect, because I don't even want to fight those guys. I like those guys a lot.

"But if I'm going to fight anybody, it's going to be somebody who's done something great like those f***ers."

So there we have it, if Diaz is to return to the octagon, he wants to fight in two divisions he's never stepped foot in before.

Diaz continued and said he'd fight "anyone" in his final octagon appearance, but it's clear he doesn't want it to be a small affair.

He's also been linked with a boxing match against Jake Paul, but his current UFC contract stops him from competing in the ring.
