It appears Nate Diaz is itching to return to the UFC. Even so, it would still be a while before he actually does.
Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC), who hasn’t competed since losing a hard-fought rematch to Conor McGregor in August 2016, took to Instagram tonight to express some general frustrations and declare “May, June” as possible months for his return to the octagon.

Sick of sitting around waiting for you f*ckers to do shit there’s no excitement in this fight shit step your games up I’ll see u around may,June.
Sincerely The Real Champ 🖕🏼
Diaz referencing himself as “the real champ” figures to be a dig at the current confusing situation surrounding the UFC lightweight championship.
McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) remains the champion, despite not competing in MMA since he won the belt in November 2016. He has no intention of fighting until the fall, according to UFC President Dana White, who refuses to strip McGregor of the title, even as he’s said champ Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) will fight for the “real” title April 7 at UFC 223.
>Dana White likes odds of Brock Lesnar, Georges St-Pierre, Jon Jones, Diaz brother fighting in 2018
Diaz’s latest remarks on his fighting future come on the heels of an Instagram post earlier this month in which he declared himself “back in action.” Diaz has expressed his desire for a McGregor trilogy after the two split a pair of pay-per-view bouts in 2016.
Most recently, Diaz was linked to a potential matchup against welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, though nothing came close to officially being booked.
