You can count on three things from the Diaz Brothers: ill will, scrappiness and the threat of a drug test failed because of marijuana usage.
But with his short-notice matchup against featherweight champ Conor McGregor looming, Nate surprisingly bears little ill will for his UFC 196 opponent.
As per MMAJunkie:
“I like his fight style a lot better than a lot of peoples’ fight styles,” Diaz told MMAjunkie today after a short workout for the media and fans at Jabbawockeez Theater inside MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. “The fight game has gotten really weak (over) a long time. So I guess I could say I appreciate somebody that’s coming to fight.”
Granted, that’s not exactly Diaz saying he wants to go out with McGregor for some drinks and maybe go antiquing through the countryside on a Sunday afternoon, but for a Diaz, that’s practically a profession of love.
