In his next fight at The Ultimate Finale, Diaz lost to Manny Gamburyan via submission due to an armbar early in the second round; Gamburyan was forced to withdraw due to an injury due to an injury replaced by Gray Maynard, who defeated Diaz via unanimous decision.

Nate Diaz Haircut
Nate Diaz’s hair has a tapered buzz cut closely cropped all over the head. The hair on top is left at least 1/2 inch long and tapers down to a number 2 blade length around the sides and back.
His haircut can be achieved with a number 3 clipper blade on top and faded into the sides and back with a number 2 blade. He likes to keep his short buzz cut style textured to give his hair more volume.
Nate Diaz’s haircut is styled with a matte finish pomade or clay, which helps keep flyaway hairs under control while providing some definition to his haircut.
This classic military buzz cut is perfect for men who want a low-maintenance hairstyle that is easy to style. It’s also great for guys who have thinning hair or receding hairlines as it doesn’t require much styling product to make your hair appear thicker.
It looks great on all face shapes, which makes it an ideal men’s haircut to get if you’re not sure what type of new hairstyle would look good on you.
Tapered Buzz Haircut
The taper is a simple variation on the buzz cut that’s been around for more than 100 years when it was first called the “tight haircut.”
The taper starts with a buzzed length at the sides and back, which gets shorter as it moves down to your neckline. The longer hair on top can be as long or short as you want, but we recommend keeping it no longer than half an inch.
While splitting hairs between buzz cuts, fades and tapers may seem like semantics to some of you, in our book, a taper is the most common variation on a buzz cut, which is traditionally one length all over. Because it graduates to a slightly greater length higher on your head, laymen point to it as a fade.
A fade is technically a buzz cut that graduates to zero (a shaved or “bald” finish) toward the lower portion of your head or neckline. That said, most guys use the terms interchangeably these days — and for a good reason.
When executed by an experienced barber (or yourself), the difference between a tapered buzz cut and a faded one is minimal.
How to get the Tapered Buzz Haircut?
To achieve the tapered buzz cut, you’re going to need a pair of clippers with at least two guards and a pair of scissors. You’ll need to attach the smaller of the two guards to your clippers before you begin.
Using your clippers with a 1/2 inch guard attached, start at the front of your head just above your forehead and work your way across the top of your scalp toward the back of your head. Once you are finished clipping across the top of your head, use a longer guard to cut around your ears and lower your neckline until you reach your crown.
Then you can use scissors to blend in any sharp edges around the sides and back of your head. This is especially important if you have shorter layers on top as you don’t want hard lines from different lengths.
The tapered buzz haircut is very popular among young people as it is quite simple to maintain as well as saves enough time to get a haircut done. It is also quite convenient in comparison to the short hairstyle that requires regular maintenance at the barbershops. Moreover, this type of haircut has a lot of variations and is easy to perform on any other hair length.
