They have been labeled “thugs” by the President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Dana White.   

Nick and Nate Diaz are two brothers who are not afraid to get aggressive when it comes time to shine. These mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters use different techniques to knockout opponents.

The Diazes were born in Stockton, California, where they learned their fighting skills. They have competed since the beginning of MMA and proven themselves to be some of the best fighters of all time. They both decided to become fighters when Nick dropped out of high school, and Nate followed soon after. They gained recognition when Nate Diaz defeated Conor McGregor, a well-known fighter.

Because of their tough tactics and the way that they performed at all of their press conferences, the president of the UFC, Dana White, has admitted that he has problems booking Nick or Nate. In an interview on MMA30tv, he has claimed  that they have not met some media obligations.

A good way to support the Diaz brothers and to see what everything is about would be to watch Nate’s next fight which is UFC 230 at Madison Square Garden in November.
