Nate Diaz blasts fans who think he has CTE: I’ve been talking this way the whole MFing time

Nate Diaz has always had a way with words. However, he asserts that this has been his way of speaking since childhood. Despite this, Diaz is confused why some fans have accused him of suffering from brain damage or chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). This is particularly pertinent as he gears up for his boxing debut against Jake Paul in August.

During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Diaz said that contrary to popular belief he doesn’t take punches as frequently as people assume. While he does suffer cuts and bruises from forearms and elbows, he wants to emphasize that he has the skills to roll with the punches and minimize the impact.

He said: “I don’t really be eating punches like they say. I bleed because of the forearms and elbows and s*** cut me up but like I said, I’ve been in a boxing gym and it might not look like it but I roll with a lot of these punches that anybody lands on me. I’m not just walking in like a meathead into punches.”

Addressing the concerns about his speech patterns, Diaz adamantly proclaims, “I’ve never been knocked out, I’ve really never even been f******g stunned stupid or nothing like that. So, these f*****s are talking about how I talk and I’ve got f*****g CTE or some shit. I’m like bro, I’ve been talking this way the whole motherf*****g time.”

Diaz went on to say that his distinctive way of speaking has nothing to do with his ability to take hits. On the contrary, he asserts that he is more intelligent and sharper than ever before.

He continued: “It’s got nothing to do with getting hit or none of that. I’m smarter now than ever. I think he has a long night ahead of him, but I’m not afraid of it and ready to rock and roll.”

It is true that Nate Diaz has experienced two knockout losses. But one was due to a cut, and the other occurred when his corner decided to intervene. Diaz has indeed participated in grueling matches and absorbed his fair share of blows. However, he adamantly denies that this has resulted in any brain damage.
