    is it because they epitomize the "just bleed" mantra more than anyone else? is it because they cultivated an image of being "anti-establishment" and their fans think that's badass or something?

    most fighters would get completely roasted if they were crying and whining in interviews (like Nick does all the time) or how disrespectful they both are to other fighters, but for some reason they get a pass. Nate's antics in his last fight really rubbed me the wrong way, turning his butt towards Edwards and showboating while getting his ass kicked and bleeding like a pig <Neil01> Dude is obviously high on his own ego

    Just looked like clown to me. <JonesDXSuckIt>

    I kind of get it for Nick. He has this natural aura and had very good hands.
    Nate on the other hand, I never understood. He is like a try-hard, discount Nick. Super cringe trying to act like some rapper and flexing all the time. He is also not very good.

    Because they're just very pure and raw. They are street kids who are not faking a persona for views or clout. These kids literally fight because it's the only thing they know how to do. Listen to that Nick Diaz interview yesterday and tell me that wasn't 100% the rawest thing you've heard in mma in awhile. That was a confused man who doesn't really know how to do anything but fight. He is having an internal dilemma in front of camera literally questioning why he's doing this shit in the first place. He sounded broken and hurt that he's given so much to mma and it's destroyed him and not given anything back, yet he can't leave because he feels it's who he is and he doesn't know what else to do.

    I feel like this thread has been made often. Was your desperate need for attention too much for you, to just use the search function?

    Because they are real fighters and not just some athletes who dive for the legs.

    Honestly, I don’t see how anyone as a fight fan couldn’t love the Diaz brothers.

    Nick in particular. Just a massive amount of respect for him and how real he comes off. This sport is full of characters and he isn’t one of them. You can tell he has a ton of social anxiety and struggles internally with himself at times and that’s something that most of us can honestly relate to. Doesn’t hurt that the guy is a complete warrior as well.

    They are natural born fighters, they have an in your face personality, they are both moderately to highly successful in the sport, Nick is an MMA OG, they are both tough as nails, they both are anti establishment and love weed. Their overall demeanor and personality is kind of unique compared to other fighters. Both usually put on a good fight no matter who they are up against.

    it caters to a wide audience.
