On a side note, I'm still unclear how anyone could defend Nick's action? "Give him a break cause he doesn't like doing that shit?" Diaz homers keep bringing up the fact that he's a "fighter", well he needs to understand the ufc employs "professional fighters" not "random punks off the streets". If he can't grasp what "professional" means then he needs to get cut and do something else with his life that he actually enjoys.

The UFC is trying everything in their power to become a real mainstream sport. The Fox deal was a big step for them, there's no way the UFC can afford to keep this kind of clown and still command respect with the other major sports league.

As for the fight if it did happen, I honestly believe GSP would destroy Diaz. GSP tends to perform better the more he gets trash talked. BJ fans keep harping about grease gate but the fact is BJ got so beat up they feared it might end his career and threw in the towel (so let's stop with this GSP can't finish BS, cause he DID finish BJ). Diaz cannot handle wrestlers, he does best against the Leben types who likes to brawl and go retard mode in front.

He'll get peppered with jabs, and get taken down then GSP will put him in half guard where he won't have anything to fear, and just grind Diaz from that position till he gets cut badly. Round 2 will be the same. Round 3 is when GSP will prob mix up his strikes more as Diaz will prob drop his hands and advance like a retard only to be taken down yet again. R4 and R5 will be more GNP and Diaz will look worse than Lauzon vs Miller.

This fight is a win win situation. If he doesn't show up at the presser he gets cut and we never see him again, or he shows up and hopefully gets a career ending injury from getting too much ground and pound.

I love Nick Diaz. He's been providing me with more entertainment than anyone else not named Sonnen.

Did he mention since when¿ I'd say it makes a difference if he isn't available on the phone since New Years Eve or for several weeks.

Wow... I'd be surprised, but really I didn't expect much more out of a Diaz. Johnny Hendricks might get his title shot after all!

Diaz fans are an odd lot. If he purposely gets out of fighting a guy twice by no-showing it's hilarious.

No, it's not hilarious. He's scared.

You are right, he's scared. I know exactly what he's going through. An old buddy of mine who passed away last year was exactly like him.

Do you guys know anything about anxiety? As soon as Dana calls him, he's probably wigging out about the conversation already, so I can understand why he doesn't answer the phone. It's like a big build up thing that doesn't actually exist but in your mind it becomes something gargantuan.

If he doesn't show to the press conference then yeah, he was scared, but not scared of GSP like many would like to imply, he's scared of having to sit in front of 200 reporters and 20 cameras answering all of their questions.

Dana should be corresponding with Cesar.

The brb shit is so lame.

And can we please shut this forum down? We can't criticise fighters because they make more money than us so this forum doesn't really serve a purpose.
