Anthony Bourdain is a famous chef who travels the world showing the different foods of the world. He has run shows such as “No Reservations” and “Parts Unknown.” He has appeared on the Travel Channel, CNN, and others. Anthony Bourdain tweeted out a photo of himself with Nate and Nick Diaz while they were taping for a new episode of “Parts Unknown.”
According to the article by MMA Junkie:
Over the weekend, Bourdain tweeted a picture with the fighters grubbing at an unknown restaurant. The Diaz brothers are longtime vegans and advocate a plant-based diet as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Karen Reynolds, a spokesperson for CNN, today told MMAjunkie that the episode is targeted for the show’s ninth season, which debuts in April 2017. She was unable to provide further details because the episode is still in production and hasn’t taken its final shape.
Nate Diaz has no plans of returning to action but is demanding a third fight with Conor McGregor after his recent loss. Nick Diaz still has to pay $75,000 or more in fines for violating the Nevada State Athletic Commission drug protocols.
The previous UFC fighters who had continuously broken into mainstream programming were female fighters such as Ronda Rousey and Paige VanZant. Fighters such as Miesha Tate and Holly Holm have also made day-time television appearances.
Since Nate Diaz’s win over Conor McGregor he has been an unlikely candidate to crossover. Nate has made appearances on the Conan O’Brien Show, the Jimmy Kimmel Show, and now a CNN travel-based show.
