PHOTO | Nate Diaz honored by California assemblyman

Nate Diaz

Nate Diaz is doing big things outside of the Octagon and has been honored for the efforts behind his goodwill.

On Tuesday, the graciefighter_209 account posted a photo of Diaz being honored for his efforts in giving back to his community.

The caption read:

“Tonight our own Nate Diaz was honored by Assemblyman Jim Cooper for his hard work and for giving back to the kids and adults of the community. The True meaning of hardwork pays off. Presented by friend and Cesar Gracie Brown belt Mikey Singh. Congratulations #legislativeaward #jimcooper #pillarofthecommunity #real”

Diaz was given flack by Conor McGregor for teaching kids jiu-jitsu, but that came back to hurt him as Diaz’s jiu-jitsu is what finished their fight at UFC 196 back in March.
