This week, we feature the Stockton Bad Boy, Nick Diaz!
Before his meteoric rise to MMA stardom, he was a phenomenal Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner. Through his MMA career, this Cesar Gracie Black Belt has evolved into a total package mix martial artist without sacrificing his grappling roots. Possessing a 26-7 professional record, Diaz has beaten a lot of gamed fighters in the lightweight and welterweight divisions.
Enjoy the matches!
*** BONUS: We were able to find Nick’s second pro MMA bout; his opponent was no other than fellow MMA superstar Chris Lytle (who’s also not too shabby on the ground).
