Nate Diaz is a devoted supporter of the San Francisco 49ers. The NFL franchise recruited the former UFC icon to voice over their newest commercial for their Saturday wild-card game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Stockton native inspired 49ers fans all around the globe as the club aims for its sixth super bowl victory this year.
In the promo, Diaz claimed: “Everybody’s a gangster till a gangster walks in the room. It seems simple because it is. It’s easy to talk the talk until you gotta back it up. Every team wants to be a bully. They wanna play smash mouth… till they get smacked in they mouth.”
“You wanna be the best in the game? You gotta be the biggest, baddest motherf**ker every time you take the field. But you can’t teach toughness. Can’t fake guts. We’re gonna have to earn them. The whole world wrote us out that we’re cooked. Instead of tapping out, we swung back again and again until we were the new bullies of the NFC. It’s us against the world. If you’re not on our team, then f**k off.”
Diaz continued: “This ain’t about nobody else. This is about us. Time for talk is over. Time to put up or shut up. Who wants it more? The quest for six starts now. Bang, bang, niner gang.”
The 49ers beat the Seahawks 41–23 to progress in the playoffs.
Nate Diaz posted a video of himself meeting Paul’s father Greg along with the caption: “Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. The s***head family.”
Greg Paul had previously said this about Diaz on a podcast: “Jake will knock the p*** out of Nate Diaz. Nate Diaz is a punk and his record is mediocre.”
