Nick Diaz Returns To UFC But Has To Follow Strict New Rule

Nick Diaz fans, get ready because the legendary fighter is making his comeback! Diaz is set to step back into the Octagon on August 3rd to face Vicente Luque in an exciting five-round welterweight clash. This highly anticipated fight will take place in Abu Dhabi, and is set to serve as the co-main event under Cory Sandhagen vs. Umar Nurmagomedov.

The fight marks a significant moment for Diaz, who has spent most of his MMA career in North America. Now he’s taking his talents to the Middle East where there’s a new challenge awaiting him – a strict no-cannabis policy.

It’s no secret in the sport that Diaz is pretty fond of weed, so he’ll have to make some pretty big changes to his lifestyle while he’s in Abu Dhabi. Smoking marijuana there is illegal, and they take violations really seriously, with a risk of jail time for anyone caught with the drug.

The last time Diaz fought in the UFC was back in September 2021 at UFC 266, where he faced Robbie Lawler. It wasn’t his best night, and he hasn’t secured a UFC win since 2011 when he defeated BJ Penn. However, Diaz has had epic battles with top fighters like Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva and holds wins over tough opponents like Josh Neer, Evangelista Santos, and Paul Daley.

So get ready for a memorable fight on August 3rd. Diaz vs. Luque in Abu Dhabi promises to be a thrilling match, and all eyes will be on Diaz to see how he handles his return to the Octagon (and that strict no-cannabis rule).
