Nate Diaz in one word: What UFC fighters think of Stockton's finest
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Love him or hate him, Nate Diaz is that guy.
He’s that guy who has everyone talking, whether it’s through his actions inside the cage and or outside of it. He’s that guy who speaks his mind and simply doesn’t care what anyone thinks. He marches to the beat of his own drum. He keeps it real.

On Saturday night at UFC 241, Diaz makes his highly anticipated return for the first time in three years, when he takes on Anthony Pettis at welterweight. It’s a showdown that’s had everyone buzzing all week, from the moment Diaz stepped on stage at open workouts and shared a blunt with fans.
