Nate Diaz is one of the most popular fighters in the sport today and rightfully so. The UFC veteran has a tremendous fight IQ, never backs down from an opponent, and has the skills to finish fights on the feet or the ground. Not to mention his trash talk, infamous Stockton slaps, and publicized marijuana advocacy.
Heading into Diaz’s welterweight clash with Leon Edwards tomorrow night (Sat., June 12, 2021) at UFC 263 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, the promotion has put together a video package featuring Diaz’s UFC journey. From his days on “The Ultimate Fighter” to his infamous submission win over Conor McGregor, Diaz has turned in quite the career.
Check out the full video breakdown from Diaz himself in the above player, courtesy of UFC.
If Diaz is able to pull off the upset and snap Edwards’ eight-fight win streak this weekend at UFC 263 it will add another chapter to his storied career. A victory for Diaz will also set him up for another massive fight next, which could come in the form of a welterweight title shot.
