Nate Diaz may not be in the UFC anymore, but he remains in everyone’s mind, including Ciryl Gane, who has enthusiastically performed a hilarious mimicry of Diaz.
The “Stockton Puncher” has made his mark on the sport. And while he has not yet finished his career, at the moment it is not known whether Diaz is going to continue it. It is also possible that he gets into boxing.
Nonetheless, the unique personality of Diaz, both in and out of the Octagon, has been very memorable for everyone, including Gane who recently did an impression of him. The clip, which was aired on Twitter via @MMArena_.
In the clip, Gane is seen wearing a beanie -a clothing item Diaz was often see in, and has his fists up. When asked “Ay wassup Nate how you’re doing today?”, the Frenchman replies in a signature way of the Diaz brother- “F*** you man”.

Ciryl Gane set to face Jon Jones at UFC 285 For the vacant heavyweight belt
Gane has recently taken the limelight after being announced as one-half of the upcoming title contest for the vacant UFC Heavyweight Championship, and the other half is none other than Jon Jones. The two will be locking horns at UFC 285 on March 4th, for the belt that was vacated by Francis Ngannou after parting ways with the promotion.
All that being said, the fact of having a fight against” Bones” does not prevent Ciryl Gane from expressing his admiration for his upcoming adversary. In the press conference after UFC Vegas 67, the former interim champion of the division had only praise for “Bones” and defined the fact of facing him as “The realization of a dream.”
“When I started watching this, Jon Jones was one of my favorite fighters,” said Gane. “More when I started MMA, because I’m a fan of every sport in MMA, and when you look at a guy like Jon Jones, who’s well-rounded like this, you really appreciate it. He’s the GOAT. Look at his career. Today, I’m a young fighter, and I think it’s the dream of every young fighter to fight against a GOAT. This is really crazy for me.” [H/T MMA Fighting]
