FINALLY NATE has grown and brain and realizes he isn't a natural 155 lber.
To all of you who say he is to small at 170, you are retarded.
All he has to do is focus on hitting the compound weights in the gym, get on a good diet, and he will easily fill in and and can be just as strong as the other big boys up there.
Just because he is skin and bones now, doesn't mean he will stay that way. The genetic potential for a guy like diaz who gets on a serious strength program while adding some lbs would well above what most of you believe. Most Power lifers and bodybuilders spend 3-5 years just training naturally without juice while sometimes adding 50+ lbs to their frame of lean mass before they even start to think about juicing, and with DIAZ being above 6 feet tall he has a lot of room to grow.
I think all he should focus on is this and wrestling, he already has the BJJ and standup skills, a filled out and lean Nate Diaz at 170 with some muscle on him would be a very serious threat to deal with. Sure he may lose some flexibility, but who cares, that doesn't stop frank mir from subbing guys at 265 lbs. This is MMA, and its about time Diaz learns the wrestling and strength training part of it.
He should focus on squats, deadlifts, cleans, press, pullups and other compound lifts, while eating tons of chicken breasts and complex carbs.
I wouldn't be surprised if he added some power as he goes up in weight also.
Right now he is starving his body staying at 155, which in return really limits your ability to gain strength and add lean muscle.
The kid is 24 years old and in the peek age for natural test production. His career is just in the beginning now. He should take 6 mos - to a year off to add some good size then return and beat the shit out of some of the 170 lbers with no skillz.
