Nate Diaz, UFC Reportedly Discussing UFC 227 for Potential Return

Conor Mc Gregor Celebrates

Sources told ESPN that UFC has reached out to Diaz with multiple lightweight opponents for a fight this summer, possibly at UFC 227 on August 4 in Los Angeles.

UFC President Dana White will reportedly wait until after the NY legal system decides what to do with Conor McGregor before handing down any suspensions or punishment of his own.

It sounds like some incredibly lax treatment for a shocking assault that left two fighters injured and unable to compete at April 7's UFC 223, yet McGregor obviously has the money and influence to hire the right lawyers to get him out of trouble. He's got to be punished by the law first.

McGregor is due in a NY court on June 14 to face criminal charges after he and his entourage attacked a bus at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, the site of UFC 223.

McGregor appeared in a New York City court where his bail was set at $50,000 (€40,000). A victory against such an opponent could put him back in a bout with McGregor or just a step or two away from a title shot.

In January, UFC star Nate Diaz tweeted he'd be back in May or June.

The case gained renewed interest when McNamara started posting her research on the case on her website True Crime Diary . He said so on Twitter and also during his previously scheduled appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers .

In the meantime, when is McGregor going to fight next?

That worst-case projection didn't stop White from talking about a possible mega fight between McGregor, the UFC's biggest draw, and rugged Russian, Khabib Nurmagomedov. Per the report, the talks between the two sides have Diaz getting back into action on the UFC 227 card which is now scheduled for August 4 at Staples Center in Los Angeles - the flawless venue for Diaz to reemerge in.

"We'll see", White said.

"There's been a lot of talk about this Khabib fight and it seems to be brewing towards this one", said Roddy.

McGregor once said that he'd be willing to travel to Russian Federation for a fight with Nurmagomedov. "It's too big. Ya gotta do it in Vegas".
