UFC legend Nick Diaz shared footage of him training with heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury ahead of a potential comeback in mixed martial arts.
Taking to his social media on Friday afternoon, Diaz posted a video of him doing some training in the boxing ring with Fury, arguably the best heavyweight boxer on the planet.
Fury said of Diaz on his Instagram stories, “We’re working out. We’re coming for all you motherf—–s out there,” Fury said. “You’re getting smashed to f–k, you better believe it. Absolutely smashing it. He’s in tremendous shape. He’s ready. Make the fight, Dana. Make the fight.”
The last time we saw Diaz step into the Octagon was way back in January 2015 when he fought to a No Contest against Anderson Silva. In the six-plus years since then, there have been whispers of Diaz making a return to the Octagon. But it hasn’t happened up until this point.

Tyson Fury believes it’s time for Nate Diaz to return
Diaz has been posting more videos of him doing training lately. So it appears as though he is quite serious about a comeback this time around. Considering he is 37 years old, there is certainly a good possibility that Diaz can return to the cage and still win some fights.
Dana White talked about the speculated return of Diaz.
He said, “The meeting went good. My whole thing with Nick Diaz is that I just question how bad he really wants to fight. We got together, we had a great conversation, and talked about a possible comeback for him. I just don’t know. We’ll see how it plays out this summer and the rest of the year.”
In the meantime, while White decides if Diaz is ready to fight again, “The Stockton Bad Boy” will continue training and spending some time getting to be in the ring with Fury.
