Nate is no stranger to fighting against big corporations, as his entire MMA career has just been that gaining small victories in order to have some leverage over the multi-million dollar giant that is the UFC. In fact this runs in the family as his brother Nick, was one of the earliest and most vocal critics of the UFC and it’s business practices.
Nate is a big fan of Tyson since he grew up watching the 20-year-old demolishing bigger opponents in terrifying fashion. Mike has met Diaz at many UFC events, and the two share a love for fighting and the belief that marijuana can act as a relaxant and alternative medicine for fighters. In fact, after his famous BMF fight against Jorge Masvidal, Nate insisted that it should have been Tyson presenting the belt and not Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Today Nate pledged his allegiance to Mike in his fight against Hulu with a simple tweet that read,“I’m wit Mike Fuck you hulu”
