The 36-year-old warrior has an incredible spirit. Unlike other UFC fighters, he doesn’t seem keen on being a champion or chasing the money. He allows fighters to approach him and walks into the octagon without any hype from him. But as soon as the bell rings the dingdong, he unleashes his mixed martial arts style with a rebellious scream.

Recently, the Stockton native had an interaction with ESNews. In this interview, Diaz asked about his favorite boxers from this generation. He said, “Right now I like. Who I like now….. Errol Spence Jr I like him, Canelo”.

Notably, UFC boxers and fighters are half-brothers. Both practice combat sports with a unique set of rules. However, Nate Diaz picked Errol Spence Jr. and Canelo Alvarez. There is no doubt that they are the current star boxers. One is a unified WBC and IBF welterweight champion, while Canelo is the stalwart, who created history by becoming the first undisputed super middleweight champion.
