Nate Diaz and His Badass Guillotine

Nate Diaz guillotine

by Brendan · 0 comments

Last night Nate Diaz put his newly earned black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to good use by submitting Jim Miller with a really slick Power Guillotine when Miller shot in for a takedown. It was the first time Miller had been stopped in his professional career. Diaz looked the far superior grappler of the two.

He almost got the tap out using a one armed guillotine but Miller started to slip out so he transitioned into the regular variation. You know I’m a big fan of the Guillotine Choke here, I even dedicated a huge post to detail how to pull off all the different guillotine variations.

I understand why some people hate the Diaz brothers because of their attitudes but they both always turn up to fight.

Just try to watch the sequence below and not be impressed by the BJJ od Nate Diaz it’s absolutely impossible!

Watch The Gracie Brothers breakdown Diaz’s slick guillotine as well as Alan Belcher’s submission defence against feared leg taker Rousimar Palhares. Like they say the choke was so deep it was more like a rear naked choke from the front than an actual guillotine.

I feel that Nate is the more well rounded member of the Diaz brothers. His takedown defence is a lot better than his older brothers plus his Judo seems a lot crisper as well.

The Nate Diaz Story

I really like this video, it’s a good look into when Nate began doing BJJ & MMA and how it came about. It chronicles him going from young intimidated kid to TUF winner. It also shows just how much he looks up to his older brother Nick. I think after the win now is the time that Nate will step out of his brothers shadow and prove he is more than just ‘Nick’s younger brother’.

Quick Note

It was great to see Jim Miller coming out to Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It’s refreshing to see a fighter walkout to something other than Hip-Hop or shitty Nu-Metal.
