Nick Diaz is someone who could care about anything, except when it comes to his dear brother, Nate. Nick, an MMA legend who is the former Strikeforce welterweight champion and former UFC title challenger, was last seen inside the Octagon making his return after 6 long years of break from the sport of MMA when he faced Robbie Lawler at UFC 266 and lost via TKO due to retirement from the fight. While Nick already solidified himself as one of the most fan-favourite fighters of all time, Nate Diaz is no less of a superstar.
Nate Diaz is the only name that comes closer to UFC megastar Conor McGregor in terms of stardom inside the world’s most well-known platform for the MMA fighters. Nick is known for his wins over the likes of Frank Shamrock, BJ Penn, Paul Daley, Gleison Tibau, Robbie Lawler and many more. Nate is known for his wins over the likes of Gray Maynard, Jim Miller, Melvin Guillard, Conor McGregor, Anthony Pettis, Donald Cerrone, Michael Johnson and many more.
