@nickdiaz209 and @NateDiaz209 will be competing at Aug 4th Gracie Open. Live stream will be free for the fans!

With this being an official Gracie event we should expect that both Diaz brothers will show up.




Last month Nick Diaz was scheduled to fight Braulio Estima at a BJJ Superfight show but no-showed after disputes over weight and problems with the event organisor.

Right now there is no word on who the brothers will be fighting at this event, or wether their fights will be superfights or part of a tournament.

Last year Nate Diaz fought Guerrilla Jiu-Jitsu instructor and competitor Matt Darcy holds a black belt in Jiu- jitsu under Dave Camarill, Diaz won the bout with a kimura.
