Nick Diaz proved that a recent shopping spree with his famous little brother keeps arguments on his mind.
The former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion recently uploaded a video to social media showing him shadow boxing in a jewelry store while Nate Diaz looked at luxury watches.
Nick captioned the post, “Getting ready to pick up this Rolex!”
The 39-year-old is considered by many to be an MMA legend and pioneer after a Hall of Fame fighting career that included victories over BJ Penn, Paul Daley and Robbie Lawler.
However, it has been 12 years since Diaz last tasted victory in the sport.
He has since suffered losses to Carlos Condit, Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva (which was later overturned to a no-contest).
In September 2021, Diaz returned after a six-year hiatus to face Lawler, whom he had previously defeated in one of his most famous wins.
The MMA veteran looked out of shape ahead of UFC 266 and his fight with “Ruthless” was moved from welterweight to middleweight.

The end of the fight was something you wouldn’t expect from Diaz, the normally tough slugger fell to the ground in round three and refused to continue, resulting in the referee stopping the fight.
Diaz’s MMA career was thought to be over after his latest loss, but in December he announced he was planning another comeback fight.
He said: “You can see me back at the top in 2023, I’m making a comeback.”
“I will be faster than ever, stronger than ever, better than ever. I’ll just be a whole new me. who is upstairs right now [I want]preferably Israel Adesanya if he gets his title back.”
Nate’s career is currently at a crossroads after his 15-year stint in the UFC ended in 2022.
The 37-year-old has expressed interest in jumping into boxing and has been heavily linked to a fight with YouTuber Jake Paul, who recently lost to Tommy Fury.
“The Problem Child” offered to fight Diaz in boxing and MMA under the PFL banner, but it doesn’t seem like the UFC fan favorite is interested in taking up Paul’s offer.
Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn revealed he has spoken to Diaz, who wants to face Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, but that fight has been ruled out and it’s currently unclear when Conor McGregor’s rival will make his boxing debut.
