Nate Diaz grapples with friend in kitchen
Nate Diaz is a current top contender in the stacked UFC’s light weight division. He is perhaps best known for his two amazing fights with UFC superstar and current light weight champion Conor McGregor.
Diaz won the first bout against Conor via rear naked choke in the second round, making him the first person ever to beat him in the UFC. He came up a little short in their second outing though, dropping a majority decision to McGregor in one of the best fights of the year.
In this YouTube video, we see what it’s like to hang out with the notorious Diaz brother and you have to be ready to go at all times it seems.
Though he is clearly just playing around with his friend, lightly grappling, it doesn’t seem like the kitchen is the safest place to be doing so. And on hardwood floor nonetheless.
Nate even gets a nice trip on his friend when the two are clinched up which sends him hurling to the ground much to the delight of fellow UFC fighter Yancy Medeiros who is doing the filming.
As the old saying goes, it is all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
Nate hasn’t fought since the Conor fight of August of 2016 and is most likely waiting for another crack at McGregor.
