Nate Diaz first MMA fight!

Nate Diaz has always been a warrior

Thought to be UFC fighter Nate Diaz’s first fight back in 2002 against a much older and bigger Robert Limon in what looks to be a bare-knuckle fight, but with open hand strikes.

Nate Diaz may be one of the most well-known names in the UFC now, but it wasn’t long ago that Diaz was taking on bouts inside gyms to try and make a name for himself.

This video has emerged as of one of Diaz’s first fights prior to turning professional and making his MMA debut at WEC 12, where he defeated Alejandro Garcia with a triangle choke in the first round.

Watch a 17-year-old Diaz taking on Robert Limon from Team Kihon in one of Diaz’s first unsanctioned fights and the Gracie fighter shows that the “Stockton Slap” has been around for a long time.
