Seems to be...I doubt he'll have any problem with fighting Noons because he's "too small".

On the other hand he is the WW champ and should be focused on his weight class.

Grow a pair Diaz.... your supposed to be the tough guy yet you dont want to give a guy you and your "Homies" jumped a chance to fight.
Cutting zero weight to make 182 BTW. Diaz would have to drink a two liter to make 185 and he'd piss it out before fight time. Mayhem cuts to 185 now.

Oh and Diaz didn't have the 170 lb title at the time. It made sense to fight Shamrock given that he had nothing to lose (a title) and everything to gain (Shammy is a legend both locally and globally). What's to gain fighting Mayhem? Nothing. I mean if he just has to fight every comer let's have him fight Fedor at a catchweight next, even the loss would be a lot better for his career.

Diaz had nothing to gain from jumping Miller but did it anyway. I could care less what this does for either Careers. This fight needs to happen because because its a Legal way for Mayham Miller to get a fair fight with the guy. If it doesnt happen in the Octagon id go as far as to say that i support Miller if he wants to go out and fight Diaz on the streets. I wouldnt even mind if Miller wants to step in the octagon with Nate Diaz right after.

Well the only immediate effect it had on their relationship was a suspension and fine!

Bottom Line.

Nick Diaz is a grown man that acts like a piece of shit. He acts like a thug and people DO need to realize that isnt the way you should be acting. Jumping someone in the middle of an octagon with peoples kids watching it is just a low life thing to do. This isnt Nick Diaz first unsanctioned fight. He got kicked out of the UFC because the psychopath had to fight Joe Riggs in the hospital after getting his ass kicked in the octagon. Nick Diaz wants to jump people and fight people in the hospital because he couldn't be a man and accept defeat. Now he wants to pull the "Im a smaller, why you picking on me" card. Its sad and even more sad that people actually want to see him get away with it. Whats right is right... Mayham deserves this fight and Diaz has no right to back down. I guarantee he didnt give the people he fought outside of the octagon a chance to avoid it.

Man up Diaz!! Your Actions have consequences so face up to them. You had no problem fighting Frank so you should have no problem fighting Mayham. Who the hell does Nick have to fight at WW anyway? Only interesting fight is KJ Noons who should fight 1 more time before getting a TS.

so like this whole "there are consequences for actions" discussion. why was mayhem all up in the ring crashing someone's post-victory interview again? yeah no really why was he? honest question. seems like he chose to act like a camera-hungy pro-wrestling-style dick on cbs and ended up facing the repercussions for acting as such, IMO. that whole "consequences" thing.

granted, 6 dudes didn't need to jump on him on live tv. stupid as shit. but if you watch mayhem's face he was laughing and getting off on the whole debacle like an attention starved teenage girl even though a pack of dudes were pushing him away from the camera. anyone else in that situation would have been like "oh shit". he appeared to be enjoying himself. that's mtv fodder for ya i guess....

sometimes people aren't very nice to drama-starting douchebags and i guess if he realized that sooner........?

could have played things a lot less spotlight-stealing and riling considering it was on national tv. or maybe the reason he did it was because it'd get his face on national tv. whatever.

i nominate mayhem for the next season of jersey shore

here's an idea, how bout if Mayhem manages to win more than one fight in a row before getting his title shot? Even better, he could win a fight in the division whose champ he's calling out.
