UFC superstar Nate Diaz posted a cryptic message on Instagram early Monday morning. Diaz, who hasn’t competed inside the Octagon since fighting for the “BMF” belt in November 2019 against Jorge Masvidal, shared a picture of his longtime trainer Richard Perez holding mitts for him before a fight.
In the caption of the post, Diaz tagged Perez and wrote, “I’ll be out soon.” See below:
The post by Diaz can be interpreted in different ways. It could be viewed as Diaz just planning on coming down to Manteca, where Richard Perez Boxing is located, from Stockton, Diaz’s home, to get some rounds in with his trainer.
Or, Diaz could be potentially gearing up for a comeback. Perez has trained Diaz for years and if the fighter is ready to get back to action, Diaz could be calling on Perez to help start the process.
Although Diaz hasn’t fought in 2020, he has been active on social media, calling for rematches with Masvidal and Conor McGregor. He has also alluded to a potential scrap with Dan Hooker.
Diaz’s older brother, Nick Diaz, is also planning on making a comeback, gearing up for a potential 2021 return.
