Nate Diaz put on a show at tonight’s The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale, knocking out archrival Gray Maynard to take the decisive lead in their trilogy of fights dating back to 2007.
The previously reeling Diaz looked arguably the best he has ever been in defeating the number five-ranked Maynard, who has now lost three of his last four bouts via knockout.
Diaz recently sparked up a Twitter war with UFC Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. We’ll see if he ever gets that fight but he couldn’t have done more to improve his rapidly falling stock.
