Nate Diaz’s Battlepath to the Top

Nate Diaz has become a real force of nature, and he’s working his way to being Lightweight Champ. He has been fighting every few months for the last seven years. To top it off, he’s vegan. “I switched to a total vegan diet some time ago – no meat or dairy, and I feel stronger than ever and my endurance is only getting better.” (Fuel 4 The Fighter)

According to David King of Yahoo News:

After putting on an impressive performance against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in his last fight, Diaz displayed his evolution as an MMA fighter on May 5, becoming the first man to finish Jim Miller at “UFC on Fox 3.” Nate’s takedown defense looked better than ever against Miller, stuffing a few takedown attempts, and outworking him in the clinch. He sealed the deal with his ever impressive BJJ, smoothly securing a power guillotine choke when Miller shot in lazily.

Diaz will fight the winner of the Henderson-Edgar match later on in the year.

    Just a FYI, he will fight the winner of the Henderson vs. Edgar rematch fight, not a guy named Henderson-Edgar II.
