If you haven’t been keeping up with Nick Diaz on Snapchat, the UFC star has been recently living it up, going clubbing and partying with friends.
Despite running into some trouble where a group of guys that didn’t know who Nick was and attacked him outside a Las Vegas club, the Stockton native hasn’t let that single incident keep him from having his fun.
Check out Diaz still partying it up in Las Vegas recently alongside Tito Ortiz and some friendly ladies.
While technically being eligible to fight again now that his 18-month suspension for testing positive for marijuana is over, Diaz is finding that his time off has given him new social experiences that he never got while concentrating strictly on his fight career.
“There are ups and downs with that, being suspended,” Diaz told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto. “People don’t understand, I’ve had 37 fights, three-to-five fights every year, for 17 years. That does something to somebody. These suspensions are the only vacations I’ve ever had. It cost me a lot of money to have a vacation, basically. It’s nice to step back and see there’s more to life. (Before), I didn’t do any hanging out, drinking, meeting people, going to different places — unless it was for a fight.”
Even with newly crowned UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley calling Nick out for a championship fight, Diaz’s attitude on fighting right now is that he will step into the Octagon for competition if it all makes sense financially.
“I’ve got a bright little future ahead of me — especially if I don’t fight. Why would I want to go out there and fight with somebody, get my face punched and kicked. It’s not my idea of a good time.”
