If Nick wants GSP money he should be taking notes as to what GSP does. Not missing conferences, swearing at cameras, flipping off opponents, getting caught for weed, and generally making himself un-representable by a real company like Adidas.
Nick Diaz was acting like he has to work harder for everything than GSP. GSP responded perfectly by reminding him he already had to do the shit Nick has done, just that he was smart enough to know what to do to get to the next level. Diaz, as much as I love him, is too dumb to understand. GSp knew exactly what Nick said, and it is insulting to insinuate that since GSP has more help now that he is somehow undeserving of what he worked for. Nick could have brought himself to the next level years ago if he played the game and made himself marketable, but he chose to do whatever the **** he wanted. Well, Nick, this is what you get.
Well i agree with what you said for the most part but i disagree with the part that GSP knew exactly what Nick said. GSP at certain parts even admitted "I dont know what this means." or "I dont understand you. I speak better English then you".
Also i didnt hear Nick say that GSP is more undeserving of what he has. I cant say i heard him even insinuate it. Can you find me which quote you are referring to???
