Nate Diaz is gearing up for his highly-anticipated entry into the squared circle, where he will face Jake Paul on August 5 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz stand out as the most captivating brotherly duo in the modern era of MMA. Nick's role as Nate's dedicated trainer has remained steadfast over the years, and he proudly acknowledges this bond between them.

The Diaz brothers have gained notoriety for their blatantly carefree demeanor, which, although charming to their fans, has occasionally landed them in hot water.

Recently, Nate Diaz opened up about the journey that led him to the realm of combat sports. It was his elder brother, 'El Diablo,' who ignited the spark within him.

During a recent interview with The Mac Life, the 38-year-old Stockton native stated:

"I remember getting in fights in high school at the park after school, going to park and there being 200 people at the park. I was already headlining park before I was headlining TV shit."

He added:

"I go to the park, fight the guy, I go home with my brother. The big old main event at the park. We go home, we're chilling, Nick's grabbing his stuff together, he goes 'What's up, I'm going to train, you wanna go with me?', Nah, I'm gonna chill. He goes, 'You better come train with me after that sh*tty a** performance you put on at the park'."
