Having dropped 3 out of his last 4 fights and not competed in over a year, Nate Diaz will return to the octagon this Saturday to take on rising contender Michael Johnson in the co-co main event of UFC on FOX 17. If the photos circulating the web are any indication, it looks like Diaz is finally starting to take this sh*t seriously, which is a good thing, because when he does, you get results like the ones above.
It may not have been the trilogy fight that any of us were asking for, but Diaz’s performance against Gray Maynard at the TUF 18 Finale in November of 2013 was easily one of his greatest to date — an absolutely savage display of the Diaz’s “punches in bunches” style of boxing and his quickest UFC finish to boot. So to celebrate the arrival of UberDiaz to the UFC’s graces, let’s relive the night he turned a former title challenger in a mumbling, stumbling monster from an Abbott & Costello movie.

I’m just saying, if this Nate Diaz shows up to the cage on Saturday, “The Menace” is gonna be in for a looooong night.
