Is Nate Diaz ready for a comeback?

The wildly popular UFC fighter posted a fairly cryptic Instagram message Tuesday night, which followed a string of videos and photos from his fights. The final one was a picture of Diaz flipping his trademark double bird with a major hint about a return fight.

Diaz wrote that he’s “sick of sitting around waiting” and that there’s “no excitement in this fight [sh*t].”

“Step your games up,” he wrote. “I’ll see u around may,June.”

Diaz signed off with: “Sincerely The Real Champ.”

Sources told MMA Fighting that the social media barrage is legitimate and he’s ready to fight again in the timeframe mentioned.

He'll fight.....they just need to come to terms on fight payments moving forward. I don't think he should get McGregor MMA money but 500K to fight w/ 500K to win....I think would be pretty fair.

He'll want at least $2M guaranteed I would guess. His sense of self worth is (understandably) inflated.

Nate sees all this talk about Connor vs Khabib/Tony. Kinda feel like this is a little too late. Don't get me wrong we all wanna see him fight, but I can't help but feel like he's lost some of that main stream shine he had coming off those two Connor fights.

I could care less whether he returns or not. If he wants a fight with Conor, wait until Khabib or Tony beat him later this year, then Conor and Nate can fight each other as many times as they want without holding up divisions.

Eddie has been tweeting all day trying to get the fight......wouldn't shock me either and it actually works since both guys are around the same pay scale.
