Nate Diaz is coming back!
Nate Diaz returns to the UFC Octagon and his new opponent will be Michael Johnson.
Nate Diaz and Michael Johnson will fight at UFC on FOX 17 that will be held on December 19 in the Amway Center in Orlando. Diaz (17-10) has not fought in the Octagon since December last year, meaning he will enter the arena after a one-year break. In his last match he was defeated via unanimous decision by Rafael dos Anjos and lost three out of his last four fights.
Michael Johnson (16-9) scored four wins in a row until his defeat by a controversial split decision made by judge Beneil Dariush at UFC Fight Night 73 which was held earlier this month.
UFC on FOX 17 will be headlined by a title fight between Rafael dos Anjos and Donald Cerrone in a lightweight category.
