“COVID-19, you’re taking everything I worked for, motherf-cker”. - Nate Diaz
That’s right, Nate Diaz is back training with older brother Nick Diaz ahead of the latter’s anticipated return to the octagon in 2021, and what better way to hype his brother’s comeback than releasing a dope YouTube vlog featuring some kick-ass training footage to vintage 50 Cent?
Diaz delivered the goods on Monday, dropping the first training footage we have seen of older brother Nick since the former Strikeforce welterweight champ completed his 14-week training camp earlier in September.
But that’s enough about Nick, what about Nate? The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner hasn’t fought since he came up short in his bid to capture the BMF title against Jorge Masvidal last year, losing via third-round TKO (doctor stoppage) in the UFC 244 main event. Diaz hasn’t announced a comeback, but it’s good to see the UFC veteran still working hard in the gym.
Nick hasn’t actually a won a fight in over nine years but, despite his inactivity over the last decade, the Californian is still one of the most popular and well-liked fighters on the UFC roster.
