BIOGRAPHY

Nick Diaz is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion. He currently fights in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Nick has been training MMA since he was fifteen years old, and made his professional debut in 2001 at the age of eighteen. Since then, he has become one of the most recognizable names in all of mixed martial arts.

Born on August 2nd 1983, Nick grew up with his older brother Nate Diaz in Stockton California. The two would begin their martial arts journey together under Cesar Gracie at his Jiu-Jitsu academy located nearby their home. It didnโ€™t take long for them to make a name for themselves; they eventually opened up their own gym called โ€œThe Lionโ€™s Denโ€ which quickly became home to some of MMAโ€™s top talent including Jake Shields and Gilbert Melendez.

Nick has competed professionally all over the world, from Japan to Mexico to England. His style is heavily influenced by his extensive background in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu combined with some solid boxing skills as well as excellent takedown defense making him a threat against anyone who steps into the cage with him no matter what weight class he competes at. Throughout his career, Nick has managed to maintain an impressive record while collecting several titles along the way; being crowned WEC Welterweight Champion, IFL Middleweight Champion & King Of The Cage Welterweight Champion before joining Strikeforce where he won both their Lightweight & Welterweight Championships – becoming one of only two fighters ever to hold multiple titles simultaneously within that organization (the other being Dan Henderson).

Despite enjoying great success over his career thus far however there have been some controversial moments too; most notably when tested positive for marijuana metabolites following both UFC 143 & 151 resulting in suspensions each time (notably missing out on facing Georges St Pierre for UFC 158 title fight due to this). This led many fans/critics questioning not just if marijuana should be considered performance enhancing but also whether Nick was fighting clean or not – either way it had no real effect on how highly respected a fighter he is amongst peers/fans alike as demonstrated by him winning 5 ‘Fight Of The Night’ awards throughout 2012 alone! Furthermore due recent resurgence form after returning from 3 year hiatus 2016 saw him become first man ever beat Robbie Lawler back April 2017 showing age still no barrier when comes competing highest levels Mixed Martial Arts competition available today!

Overall its fair say that although there have been highs lows throughout career so far few can argue presence inside UFC Octagon isn’t justified given vast accomplishments achieved during lifetime involvement sport! With such huge fanbase its likely we will see much more Diaz Brothers action come 2020’s decade!
