Kamaru Usman recently raised doubts about Nate Diaz‘s possible return to the UFC for a title fight. While doing so, he suggested Diaz should go up against Conor McGregor for the third time in the octagon. The ‘Stockton Slugger’ will turn 40 next year, but he shows no signs of slowing down in his combat sports career.

The former UFC star continues to be a major draw and has some potentially epic fights on the horizon. After his recent boxing victory against Jorge Masvidal, he has been all the buzz. Kamaru Usman stated his opinion on Diaz’s next potential fight at his podcast show, Pound 4 Pound.

There are fun fights that Nate Diaz could still be part of. If Nate Diaz still wants to partake in MMA, then Conor McGregor fight is still there, that's a good one for him.

Nate Diaz’s most recent fight was against his former UFC opponent, Jorge Masvidal, also known as ‘Gamebred’. Diaz won the fight by a majority decision. However, the judges’ scorecards did not make it a clear-cut victory. Diaz’s consistent and relentless performance influenced the judges, despite Masvidal delivering more powerful and seemingly damaging punches.

In a post-fight interview, Diaz made it clear that he’s keen on a rematch with Jake Paul. Interestingly, Paul, who is affiliated with the Professional Fighters League, proposed a rematch inside the PFL’s SmartCage, but Diaz declined the substantial $15 million offer. Nonetheless, Kamaru Usman shared his thoughts on his podcast and suggested that there are even more thrilling matchups for the Stockton Slugger.

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz are two icons of the UFC, known for generating high PPV numbers on their fight nights. A trilogy between the two fighters has been highly anticipated. In their last meeting at UFC 202, McGregor emerged victorious. However, Diaz has been absent from the UFC for nearly two years. His last fight was against Tony Ferguson at UFC 279, and he hasn’t returned to the UFC since then.

Kamaru Usman stated another interesting fact on why he thinks both McGregor and Diaz should be inclined to fight each other. While discussing Nate Diaz’s next potential fight with his co-host Henry Cejudo, Usman shed light on why this fight can be beneficiary for the ‘Notorious’ as well.

After Michael Chandler, Nate Diaz is also a good fight Conor McGregor to kind of see where he's at. He's been out from the sport for a long and Nate Diaz could be a best shot for him to test that.

McGregor was supposed to fight Michael Chandler at International Fight Week on June 29. However, his return was delayed due to a broken left pinky toe, forcing him to withdraw. Diaz recently won against Masvidal, and if McGregor also wins against Chandler, who wouldn’t want to see the trilogy fight? Now, it remains to be seen whether UFC would be interested in making this trilogy happen.
