Nick Diaz to donate entire BJJ superfight purse to charity

The debut of the World Jiu Jitsu Expo kicks off with a bang on May 12, featuring a superfight that can only be defined as epic. UFC welterweight contender, Nick Diaz will be facing off against ADCC superstar, Braulio Estima in Long Beach, CA.

Diaz has been on hiatus from the UFC pending the outcome of his hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The date of that hearing has yet to be set, due to some legal back and forth between Diaz' attorneys and the commission.

An HD stream of the entire card, which is a very strong card, even without the superfight, will be provided by mobileblackbelt.tv and will cost $9.95. A pre-show will begin at 630 pm Pacific and the fight card will kick off at 7 pm.

The full fight card is as follows:



NICK DIAZ vs. BRAULIO ESTIMA (NO-GI)
KAYRON GRACIE vs. RAFAEL LOVATO (GI)
VICTOR ESTIMA vs. KRON GRACIE (GI)
NINO SCHEMBRI vs. BILL COOPER (GI)
KYRA GRACIE vs. ALEXIS DAVIS (NO-GI)
CAIO TERRA vs. JEFF GLOVER (NO-GI)

Mobile Black Belt will be donating 10% of the PPV proceeds to charity, and Nick Diaz will also donate his entire purse to charity (St. Jude's Children's Hospital), as confirmed by Cesar Gracie. Diehard jiu jitsu fans will be able to purchase the event for 30 days after the live stream, so if you happen to miss it live, you've got a month to get your fix. Tickets to the live event are also available via mobileblackbelt.tv

Good for Nick! Even though I don't believe he has a major chance in winning, War DIAZ!

Ive never viewed Nick Diaz as a bad person. Ive always viewed him as a bit insecure along with various other personal issues. I do think he has a heart and this proves it. Hell I bet behind the scenes he is really easy to get along with, Ive never heard a ton of fighters speak out about him being a complete a-hole.

I totally agree.

I'm a very socially awkward person myself, and If I was in front of the cameras all the time I could see myself acting what would appear to be 'out of character'. Though I never saw Diaz as a bad guy

I am slightly surprised at him donating his entire purse though, I may be wrong but I could have swore Nick had publicly mentioned how much he enjoys "getting that paper". Plus the issues he had in the past with the pay he's receiving and whatnot. Never the less, very awesome thing he's doing with this

Diaz is the spitting picture of a messed up guy with a good heart. I wish he'd grow up out the messed up part, guy has so much more potential.

He says he does not get paid enough, yet he is willing to donate a purse from a competition to charity. That does'nt sound bad to me.
