Lightweight fighter Nate Diaz recently appeared on Chael Sonnen’s “You’re Welcome” podcast and discussed his brother upcoming contest against Anderson Silva.
The fight will serve to mark the returns of both the former middleweight champion (Silva) and the former welterweight contender Nick Diaz (who is bulking up to take the match at middleweight).
Nate Diaz said that the despite Silva’s size advantage, his brother has nothing to fear.
“Nick’s a good size,” said Diaz. “Anderson Silva fought Ryo Chonan, Jeremy Horn. All those guys weren’t the biggest guys. Nick’s a good size for 185. He’s not huge, but it should be a good fight. That’s a fighters’ fight.
“Oh course [Silva’s] probably going to hit hard and be bigger a little bit, but he’s not the ‘hold you down and use his weight’ type of guy. He’s more of a martial arts type of fighter. In the technical aspect the weight could have a slight advantage but I don’t think it’s going to be too much. I mean, it could be a slight advantage if you get hit and s**t, but I don’t think the weight thing is going to be some big, crazy ordeal.”
