Nate Diaz, fresh off his win over Manny Gamburyan last month on The Ultimate Fighter 5 finale, will return to the UFC in September at UFC Fight Night 11. His opponent is not yet known but should be in the coming days.
Diaz has a 6-2 professional MMA record and a 6-figure contract with MMA’s largest organization. After starting his career with a win and a loss Diaz went on a 4 fight win streak before he was defeated by Hermes Franca at WEC 24 late in 2006. He then went on to appear on the reality series where he defeated Rob Emerson, Corey Hill, and Gray Maynard to earn his shot at a long term future with the UFC. On the finale Gamburyan injured his shoulder on an attempted take down and was forced to tap earning Diaz the UFC contract.
