Dateline the 300 miles of desert landscape that currently separate UFC fighter Nick Diaz and Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. The pair may not be separated at birth since Lynch was born in 1986 and Diaz was born 1983 but the two Northern California males are perhaps kindred spirits. If Nick Diaz had a spirit animal it probably would not be a panda bear, cheetah cat, or wolf.
Nick Diaz’s spirit animal would an unidentified creature and the fighter from Stockton would call him Beast Mode. Diaz would swim in the Pacific Ocean on Beast Mode’s back during the summer. In spring time Beast Mode and Diaz would run marathons together.
Born and raised in Oakland, California Marshawn Lynch’s style of fighting would resemble a Diaz brother. The 5’11 215 pound Lynch’s running style would translate to the cage as an attacking, high paced, in your face offensive arsenal that would often times overwhelm his shell-shocked opponents. On the ground Lynch’s “Beast Mode” attributes like Diaz’s would include not a single wasted movement when fighitng for a submisson or battling for position. Lynch’s well known strong work ethic would fit in perfectly as a member of Team Caesar Gracie.
Whether Diaz and Lynch are fishing together in the woods or are working as the pro wrestling tag team Nunchuk Ninjas (working title), this pair of like minded individuals needs to one day occupy the same space. The duo not only marches to a different drummer, but both will not hesitate to grab that snare drum from your warms hands and punch a hole through the center of it.
Nick Diaz and Marshawn Lynch both loathe their sport’s media and they need to hang out together. Nick Diaz and Marshawn Lynch are riding a tandem bike. Nick Diaz and Marshawn Lynch are playing GoldenEye 007 on N64 somewhere on a couch. No, Diaz and Lynch would sit on bean bag chairs. Lynch would offer Diaz a handful of Skittles and Diaz would politely inform the Seahawks running back about the dangers of high fructose corn syrup.
Diaz and Lynch could be best friends.
