‘I’m smarter now than ever’
“I’ve never been knocked out, I’ve really never even been f******g stunned stupid or nothing like that,” Diaz continued. “So, these f*****s are talking about how I talk and I’ve got f*****g CTE or some shit. I’m like bro, I’ve been talking this way the whole motherf*****g time. It’s got nothing to do with getting hit or none of that. I’m smarter now than ever. I think he has a long night ahead of him, but I’m not afraid of it and ready to rock and roll.”
Of course, Nate Diaz has lost by knockout twice – although one was due to a cut and the other was his corner throwing in the towel, so he hasn’t truly been knocked out. However, he has been in some wars and taken some shots, but Diaz doesn’t think that has led to him getting brain damage.
Nate Diaz is coming off a submission win over Tony Ferguson last September. He is now set to box Jake Paul on August 5 in a highly-anticipated matchup.
