From Stockton, United States, this MMA fighter has had it rough from the very beginning. Be it his personal life or his career, things have been far from rosy for this gent. That’s what has made him the person he is today. Born on the 2nd of August 1983, he embarked on a career in fighting early on. This Mexican-American grew up in a tough neighbourhood, and learning self-defence was essential. He spent time learning karate and aikido before switching to Sambo. A high school dropout, he debuted as a professional in 2001.
A champion in his second fight, this youngster signed with the UFC after dominating IFC fights in his division. His debut with them came at UFC 44. This 6 ft 1 in fighter has also fought in the PRIDE Fighting Championships, EliteXC, Strikeforce and DREAM before returning to the UFC. Not a lot of people’s careers take this route. But he isn’t like the rest of them. Although he has achieved success elsewhere, the UFC remains unconquered for this man. As someone who is near the fag end of his career, he will be hoping to achieve something with the most famous MMA promoters in the world.
Nick Diaz Girlfriend
This man has been really unlucky when it comes to girlfriends. His high school sweetheart, a pretty girl named Stephanie, committed suicide just before he turned pro. It shook him to the core, but this fighter overcame the pain of her loss by focusing on his career. Although he hadn’t forgotten her, he met a beautiful woman named Heather Nikole. He was in a long-term relationship with this woman.
Who is Nick Diaz currently dating?
However, as fate would have it, Heather and our man had a falling out. Although they didn’t reveal much about their relationship, we do know that these two aren’t together anymore. He isn’t seeing anyone else either. It is such a shame that things have ended this way for him. We hope that he knows that there’s light at the end of the tunnel, though.
Family: Parents, Siblings & Children
Nick’s mum Melissa was entirely responsible for raising him and his two siblings, Nate and Nina. As a single mum, she had her work cut out for her with her oldest. A raging and hormonal teenage boy needs a father figure in his life. He’s not going to listen to his mum all the time. Melissa did one thing right by signing up for martial arts, though. It helped him channel his energy and mainly his aggression to something useful. As someone who has been unlucky with women, he doesn’t have any kids of his own yet.
