Under the supervision of the Diaz brothers, Game Up products are created only with the highest quality organic ingredients. All the products are vegan-friendly since the Stockton natives are vegan and are produced in the USA.

From pole flags to bandanas, the store has a wide range of products. The most expensive product is the limited edition Gold Standard Gi-Kimono priced at $180.
Nate Diaz’s net worth is highly contributed by the store since the products are mostly sold out. And it is also Nate’s official sponsor.
Spokesperson of Lodi Vintners
The former Strikeforce and Pancrase fighter surprisingly is the spokesperson for Lodi Vintners. Lodi Vintners is Lodi’s oldest operating winery that has a variety of signature wines. As Lodi and Stockton are just 18 minutes apart, Diaz was the perfect local option to endorse.

The southpaw stance fighter even appeared on one of the coolest wine billboards in which he is holding wine bottles in both his hands.
To use such a well-known figure in their billboard, Lodi Vintners must have paid the fighter a comprehensive amount of money.
When Reebok took over the ownership of the gearings for the UFC, they had to sponsor fighter’s accordingly based on their star power.
For Nate Diaz, Reebok paid him $20,000 per fight. Since Venum has taken over the gearing duties, their deals with the fighters shall make the headlines in the days to come.
With all that said, Nate Diaz has a secured career even if he is not fighting. We wish the best to one of UFC’s toughest fighters for his future endeavors and is far from done after losing to Leon Edwards recently.
Also, since the 36-year-old is planning to move into the brewery business, we hope it increases Nate Diaz’s net worth in the days to come.
