Nate Diaz will make his return to the UFC this fall according to a GracieMag.com report.
Diaz was suspended for 90 days and fined $20,000 for using a homophobic slur on Twitter. Diaz was last seen in the Octagon in April. He was knocked out by Josh Thomson in San Jose. The Stockton native remains ranked in the top 10.
Diaz's value, fighting style and ranking should earn him another top lightweight. However, many of the top 10 are already currently booked. That does not leave too many quality options on the table for Diaz.
The No. 7 ranked lightweight will try to regain his footing in the division and make another trek toward the top.
Here are five possibilities for Diaz's return bout.
