Nate Diaz takes on one of the toughest matchups of his career in his next fight at UFC 279. And it's a scenario that is not new to MMA fans and Nate Diaz.
Nate Diaz has fought the who's who of the MMA world throughout his glorious and exciting career. And his next opponent is Khamzat Chimaev.
Khamzat Chimaev is hailed as the future UFC champion. And with an unbeaten MMA record, he is on his way to potentially winning the welterweight title.
Considering all that, fans were in disbelief when Nate Diaz said that he has given up preparing for his upcoming fight against Khamzat Chimaev.
During UFC 279 media day, Nate Diaz shocked everyone by saying “Yeah, for sure, so I just gave up on preparing. Whatever. Beat me,”
Now it might be Nate Diaz joking with the media members. But, physically he does not look in shape for the fight this weekend as per fans on social media.
It's hard to overlook the difference between Nate Diaz's physique for the Chimaev fight and before his last fight against Leon Edwards.
With a few days remaining before UFC 279, fans are concerned for Nate Diaz who is going to be locked in the cage with an absolute animal in Khamzat Chimaev.
Leon Edwards' kick was so brutal that it made Kamaru Usman lose his memory.
