Two of MMA’s most crowd-pleasing athletes came together in August 2019 for a highly anticipated affair, and Nate Diaz and Anthony Pettis did not disappoint.

At UFC 241, Diaz drew ex-champ Pettis into a grueling, in-close fight as he looked to drag the action into deep waters. Pettis managed to survive to the final bell, but Diaz’s offensive output was too much to overcome when the fight went to the scorecards.

The final tally was 30-27, 30-27 and 29-28 for Diaz, who was fighting for the first time since a decision loss to Conor McGregor in 2016.

Diaz (20-12 MMA, 15-10 UFC) returns to action at next week’s UFC 263, where he takes on top welterweight contender Leon Edwards (18-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) in a five-round non-title fight. Ahead of that clash, relive one of the many storied battles of Diaz’s career in the video above.
