UFC 241 is here, and a Diaz brother is finally back in the fold.
Nate Diaz hasn’t fought in three years. And yet, he’s never really left the conversation when it comes to MMA. Like his brother, Nick, Nate finds a way to stay relevant even when he’s far, far away from the action.
Much of that owes to the two middle fingers he and his brother extend to the world. Whether it’s their opponents, bad decisions, fake personalities, or the sport’s pomp and circumstance, the younger Diaz keeps it real.
Opposite the increasingly manicured image of a UFC athlete, Diaz, who on Saturday fights ex-champ Anthony Pettis, is the anti-hero no one can ignore. He fights with a total lack of respect, and the fans love him all the more for it.
