Nate Diaz will be the first to tell you that modern-day school lunches are based solely on surplus, not nutrition. The last time I talked to Nate, he told me America is spending more money on keeping people in prison than they are to properly feed our kids. Nate told me that food is a narcotic, so the entire country is addicted. We just need to make sure we’re addicted to the right stuff, not sugar-coated lard squares. That’s really the only conversations I’ve ever had with the Diaz brothers — it always turns into a discussion on how food sucks which then shifts into Nick (or Nate) shadowboxing in the corner for no apparent reason. That’s the Tao of the Diaz Brothers, and this Saturday we’ll see Nick cornering Nate in a fight between two rivals that have had beef for years. I don’t even think I have the 209 security clearance to tell you guys about some of the stories I’ve heard about Josh Koscheck and Josh Thomson being on the wrong side of Northern California. It’s above my pay grade.
Karyn Bryant caught up with Nate Diaz yesterday at the UFC on FOX press conference to get his take on what it truly means to fight on Stockton’s national holiday — and what happened with GSP being overweight at UFC 158.
