I am not a big Nick Diaz fan but I am a huge fan of MMA fighters taking their training to the next level and that is what Nick has done. Whatever your thoughts are on this guy you have to respect is level of passion for health and fitness. Nick has always been a little different than the normal MMA meat-head fighter and with respect this certainly shows it.
Nick was in the 30th annual Donner Lake Triathlon in Truckee, Calif. What was impressive is that he finished 36th out of 292 entrants. The triathalon is made up of a 1.5-kilometer swim, 40-kilometer bike ride and 6.5-mile run. Diaz completed the course in 2 hours, 46 minutes and 20.4 seconds. Diaz has long been a triathlon competitor and credits the training for his reputation as one of the fittest fighters in mixed martial arts.
So, there is no question about it he will be in shape for his upcoming battle with GSP. So, George better be ready for the most unique fighter he has ever faced.
