Yancy Medeiros thinks teammate Nick Diaz can be the best at anything - even partying.

Yancy Medeiros has a big fight coming up with Mike Perry at UFC 226, so he’s doing some media work to promote it. He’s clearly looking forward to putting on a show for the fans, but one exerpt from a recent interview with BJPenn Radio about a teammate was pretty humorous. You might have heard of the guy - Nick Diaz.

Medeiros was talking about how driven Diaz is when it comes to...well, anything. And that includes drinking, apparently:

“Whatever Nick does, he’s great at it. Whatever it is. If he puts his heart, his mind and soul into it, he’s top notch, one of the best in it. When it comes to jiu jitsu, when it comes to boxing, whatever it is, man, he’s so good at keeping to that…triathlons. Even partying if you wanted to.

“You can’t out-drink Nick. He’ll make you go to sleep, brother. The first time I ever got drunk, blacked out, was at Nick’s. He freaking Jedi mind tricked me man. I swear, he just kept passing me Jameson. Boom, boom, boom! Next thing I know, I woke up in the shower, naked.”

Considering how many nights of the week Diaz appears to be in clubs based on his social media, it’s no surprise that he can handle his liquor. Now we need to see him back in the cage. He recently completed a one-year USADA suspension and is eligible to fight again, but it remains to be seen if he’s actually interested in that or not.

Meanwhile, Medeiros and Perry will throw down on July 7th in Las Vegas.
