When will Nate Diaz return to the Octagon? It may be just before the two-year mark of his last fight.

Sources are telling ESPN that the UFC and Nate Diaz have discussed the possibility of his return at UFC 227 on Aug. 4.

While an official deal has yet to be inked, both sides are floating the proposed date for Nate Diaz to compete again.

Diaz (19-11) last fought in the UFC in August 2016, when he lost a majority decision in his rematch to Conor McGregor. In that time, Diaz has been adamant that he wasn't accepting a fight offer unless it was a trilogy fight with McGregor.

So far, the official word from the UFC was that there was "no update" on Diaz, via president Dana White.

UFC 227 is set to take place at Staples Center, which will also include bantamweight title rematch between T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt.
