Nate Diaz in talks with UFC for August return

Conor Mc Gregor Khabib Nurmagomedov

August 2016 saw the 33-year-old lose to Conor McGregor in a massive rematch that was one of the most high-profile in the sport's history.

The two arrived home after spending a week in the Carribbean together and it seems that McGregor intends to remain in top physical shape.

A couple of days before Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 to win the lightweight title that was once McGregor's, the Dubliner and several associates attacked a bus which was carrying UFC fighters, including Nurmagomedov.

He was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

"We'll see what happens". He will appear before the courts again on June 14. In his next most recent bout, Diaz shocked the world by submitting McGregor in the second round of a wild fight. "He's gotta be punished by the law first", White told TMZ Sports.

UFC President Dana White will reportedly wait until after the NY legal system decides what to do with Conor McGregor before handing down any suspensions or punishment of his own.

That worst-case projection didn't stop White from talking about a possible mega fight between McGregor, the UFC's biggest draw, and rugged Russian, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Diaz, who now sits with a 19-11 professional MMA record, has been relatively quiet since his loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 202 and hasn't hinted at facing any other opponents, except McGregor.

MMA Fighting are reporting that neither a lightweight title shot against Khabib Nurmagomedov nor a rubber match against Conor McGregor have been discussed for his comeback fight.

"No [it will not be in Russia]". "Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it wont be that fight".

"Khabib will fight in Russian Federation at some point, but it wont be that fight. It's too big. You've got to do it in Vegas".
