Nate Diaz is one of the most well-known UFC fighters, having fought his way up from Stockton to UFC royalty. Nate was born in the United States but is of Mexican descent. He grew up in Lodi with his mother, older brother, UFC welterweight Nick Diaz, and sister in a modest one-story house.
Because his parents were divorced, his father was rarely present during his upbringing.
Stockton has a history of having a high rate of violent crime, which resulted in frequent confrontations. Nate didn’t grow up in the middle of it, but he was always ready for a fight, and he carried that mentality into the cage.
He is always up for a brawl.
His brother refers to it as a curse, but he calls it a “kill or be killed” attitude. Nick began training to fight when he was 13 years old while working as a cook, and he finally joined his brother.
Nate Diaz is following in the footsteps of his mentor.
Nick, who was Nate’s mentor throughout his boyhood, was also a key figure in his MMA career. Both in life and in their occupations, the two brothers have an unbreakable friendship.
Nate discussed his relationship with his brother in an interview with Megan Olivi for the UFC – Ultimate Fighting Championship YouTube channel’s ‘The Exchange.’ The fighter stated that his brother was his leader and that he simply followed his brother’s orders.
Nate had stopped attending school and was hanging out with the wrong crowd, doing things he wasn’t supposed to do. His brother was already busy training to be a fighter, while Nate had stopped going to school and was hanging out with the wrong crowd, doing things he wasn’t supposed to do. Then one day at school, he got into a fight, and when his brother found out, he took Nate to the gym.
Nate was a natural boxer, and he also fell in love with jiu-jitsu, the brothers discovered. His brother improved his self-esteem and gave him sound advice, which he heeded.
His brother was also the one who introduced him to veganism, which he attributes to his improved health. Nick had eliminated all dairy and beef from his diet since it made him feel heavy and slowed him down in a battle, he explained.
Nate had never seen his brother lose a fight before. He understood it was due to his food, therefore he changed it. From then on, he noted that he followed the leader, his brother.
Nate is widely considered one of the best mixed martial artists of all time as a result of his brother’s actions.
