This weekend, former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit returns to the octagon after a nearly two-year layoff when he takes on Court McGee at UFC on ESPN 16. And should things go well for “The Natural Born Killer,” he hopes to return again next year, with an even bigger opponent in mind: former for Nick Diaz.
Diaz is one of MMA’s most beloved figures but has not fought since 2015. However, earlier this month, Diaz announced an interest in coming back to fighting in 2021. Immediately, a number of top contenders threw their hats in the ring to be the man to welcome Diaz back to the cage, but Condit thinks that he would make sense for Diaz as they two still have some unfinished business.
