He holds the record for the second and fourth highest UFC pay-per-view buy rate of 1.6 million along with Conor McGregor for a rematch at UFC 202 and of 1.3 million along with Conor for their first fight at UFC 196.

Nate also has the second most post-fight bonus awards in the UFC (15) alongside Joe Lauzon and is tied with Frankie Edgar for most Fight Of The Night bonuses (8).

Nate took a hiatus since his rematch against Conor McGregor at UFC 202 in August 2016.

Nate was supposed to face Dustin Poirier for his return in a Co-Main event at UFC 230 on November 4, 2018, however, the matchup was called off after the negotiations went sour. The situation was so messy that even UFC President Dana White didn’t want to handle it and the return of Diaz was eventually delayed for the better of everyone. Apparently, Nate was reluctant to compromise and wouldn’t agree to anything but his own terms. Poirier however suffered an injury that would have kept him out of the fight anyways.

Nate returned to the competition on August 17, 2019, against Anthony Pettis in a Welterweight bout at UFC 24. He defeated Pettis by unanimous decision and called out Jorge Masvidal for a fight for the BMF title at UFC 244. Masvidal won the fight by technical knockout via doctor stoppage after round three when the cage-side physician determined a cut over Diaz's right eye which made him unable to continue.

Diaz hasn't fought inside the octagon since November 2, 2019, though there are rumors that he will compete in 2021.
