If you are from Stockton or watch U.F.C. then you will know who this person is and his famous saying “I’m not surprised”. I had to end it off with Stockton's hometown hero this was put up after he beat Conner McGraggor in a U.F.C. match and Stockton was put on the map. After this was put up that’s all people talked about and brought so much happiness and pride to the people of Stockton and everyone celebrated and were happy just to see one of their own had made it from this dark and negativity of a place. This man is Nate Diaz a Stockton native who grew up here his whole life and he still lives here and you can always find him hanging out in the Stockton. So as you can see The beauty behind the beast and what this city is about and what it has to offer.
