VIDEO | Nate Diaz explains why he is so vulgar in his fights: ‘I’m putting my middle finger up, saying, ‘F— you’

Nate Diaz has grown to be one of the biggest stars in the UFC.

Now that the younger Diaz brother has his chance to make another giant statement with one more win over Conor McGregor, Nate gives us a glimpse of his background and how he got to being in his very fortunate situation.

“I’ve been a lot more real than other fighters,” Nate Diaz said to ESPN. “I’m putting my middle finger up, saying, ‘F— you,’ and they’re sitting there like we’re not even fighting. No, we are fighting. And this will remind you of that real quick. These other guys are trying to make this a sport, but I’m just keeping it real with what the hell is going on.

“I don’t ask my mom to watch fights — or my girlfriend, my friends, nobody. If anybody wants to watch, they can watch, but don’t get offended when I get ugly. This is not an attractive sport. It’s not like, ‘Oh, my grandson does MMA.’ Don’t tell people that. You might disappoint a lot of people you’re trying to impress.

“I’m all the way in this fight game. I’m not one foot in, one foot out. I’m not here to impress people. I’m here to get mine, get ahead and do what I’ve got to do.”
