Pettis is coming off a second-round knockout victory over #7-ranked Stephen Thompson on March 23, 2019. Recently, he has been much more active than Nate Diaz. However, he didn’t end up victorious in many of them.

Anthony Pettis won only 4 of his last 10 matches over Charles Oliveira, Jim Miller, Michael Chiesa, and Stephen Thompson. This is surely a disaster for the former UFC Lightweight Champion. 

Currently, Anthony Pettis is number 8 in the official UFC Welterweight rankings. He holds a professional record of 22 wins and 8 losses including 10 knockout and 7 submissions.

Surely there will be a close fight between these two incredible contenders. It’s very difficult to make Nate Diaz vs Anthony Pettis betting prediction. However, we will be expecting Nate Diaz to win the fight by a knockout in the third round. Make sure to check out the latest review about 22BET Sportsbook to bet on UFC.

After three years of inactivity, Diaz is still very dangerous

Nate Diaz could nearly beat the former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Champion, Conor McGregor, twice. On March 5, 2016, Diaz finished intact McGregor by submission in the second round while his face was covered with blood.

Almost the same scenario happened in their rematch on August 20, 2016. McGregor landed tons of punches to Diaz and covered him with blood in the first three rounds. While it was Diaz who kept going after McGregor and nearly beat him in the next two rounds. However, Conor McGregor won the fight with the judges’ decision.

His last two impressive performances against the most famous UFC fighter were his last appearance in the octagon. His risky style of fighting makes him a great danger to anyone and also makes him quite vulnerable

Although he could beat great fighters like Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone, he lost many matches as well. Nate Diaz has 20 wins and 11 loses in his record including 12 submissions and 4 knockouts. 

Therefore, It’s quite difficult to predict the final outcome of his matches. Even online sportsbooks in the UK has always offered close odds on Nate Diaz fights.
