UFC legend Nick Diaz shared footage of him training with heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury ahead of a potential comeback in mixed martial arts.
Diaz was a guest at UFC 261 last month in Jacksonville, Florida, and he told UFC president Dana White that he wants to fight again. 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. However, he appears to be serious about making a comeback this time, and he has been getting in some top-notch training.
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.
