Kade Ruotolo’s admiration for Nate Diaz

Kade Ruotolo, the ONE lightweight submission grappling world champion, recently shared his admiration for one of the most popular figures in mixed martial arts, Nate Diaz. In a recent appearance on the Jaxxon Podcast with MMA legend Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Ruotolo expressed his deep respect for Diaz and how he has been influenced by him throughout his career.

Ruotolo described Diaz as an OG (original gangster) and praised his stubbornness and never-say-die attitude. He highlighted Diaz’s ability to come back even when outgunned, which is something that has always impressed him. Ruotolo sees Diaz as a role model and draws inspiration from his relentless fighting style.

Physical similarities between Ruotolo and Diaz

It’s not just their fighting spirit that connects Ruotolo to Diaz. The two fighters also share some physical similarities. Both possess lanky frames, which they use to their advantage in their world-class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills.

Ruotolo’s transition to MMA

While Ruotolo is making his MMA debut at ONE 167, fans shouldn’t expect him to replicate Diaz’s infamous ‘Stockton Slap.’ Ruotolo is known for his scrappy and menacing attitude in grappling matches, but he will approach his MMA debut with a different strategy.

Ruotolo’s impressive submission finish

Fight fans are still buzzing about Ruotolo’s recent victory over Francisco Lo at ONE Fight Night 21. Ruotolo showcased his technical brilliance with a rear-naked choke/arm-triangle hybrid finish. This creative maneuver would surely be appreciated by submission specialist Nate Diaz.
