Scrap Packs Nate Diaz looks to be making a change in management, as reported on yesterday nights edition of UFC Tonight (Apr. 9), that the former top lightweight contender is no longer being managed by his longtime trainer Cesar Gracie. He will now instead use manager Mike Kogan of Real Talk Entertainment. Kogan is also currently managing fighters Roy Nelson and Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal.
No word as to what caused the split, but it is likely an amicable decision as Ariel Helwani specified that Gracie will in fact still be training Nate. You can see Nate Diaz on April 20th against Josh Thomson at the HP Pavillion in San Jose for UFC on Fox 7: Henderson vs. Melendez.
