It's just as bad as those folk who claim Anderson Silva is scared of and is ducking Chris bloody Weidman, lol.

How about you respond to El Breskos post, or just casually ignore him because you know you were in the wrong.

Edit: There's a difference between criticising a fighter and just blindly and mindlessly hating on them. Sure, Nick has his faults, probably more than most other fighters on the roster, but he also has his positives. He's a ridiculously entertaining and skilled fighter who goes out there puts on fights the fans want to see every time he steps into the octagon. These haters ignore the positives and just focus and feed off the negatives in every single Diaz thread that pops up. It's just sad. It's like they're angry that a person they loathe so much will be more successful than they ever will be in life, so they resort to mindless hate.

I don't know mate, I didn't take the picture. Maybe he's got a part time job at Best Buy.

Probably, but him picking and choosing which press conferences to be "scared" about is in question. He managed to show up to the press conferences against BJ Penn and the ones against Carlos Condit. If he doesent show up to the next one that would make 3/3 of press conferences he skipped out against GSP. That is questionable.

He might feel fine showing up and fighting against people, but for a guy with anxiety, in his head he is probably nervous against a guy in GSP who is a totally different beast. What im saying is, a normal person would feel already a ton of pressure in a big money fight against GSP. For a guy with anxiety disorder like Diaz, he is probably a nervous wreck, and I understand him being scared.

Thats totally different than Anderson Silva cause Silva specifically said he doesent want to fight Weidman because he is a no name. He isint running around and hiding.

The next press conference is a tell all. If Diaz shows up, than good for him, it looks like he can man up. If he doesent show up, I dont want hear some Diaz fanboy excuse like "GSP is a coward because he wouldnt chase after a guy who ran off" again, because im already hearing similar excuses.

People are upset because they want to see this fight bad, and dont want Diaz to screw it up again. If they dont like Diaz its probably because Nick Diaz and his hardcore fans are some of the most insane people to deal with. Its a terrible 1-2 punch. I dont think these guys feel this badly towards say Nate Diaz.

Of course Nick never answers his phone when Dana calls. Who wants to talk to their boss high?

It's Dana's choice to ultimately cancel the fight if Diaz no shows, GSP shouldn't cop any flak for that.

Anxiety doesn't really work like that, he's comfortable with fighting, he's definitely not afraid to fight anybody, it's just how he's wired. He is not comfortable with the press though, Nate and Cesar probably kidnapped the bastard to get him to the BJ and Condit press conferences.

I hope he shows, it'll be a great fight. Nick has a better chance than Condit did. I still don't really think he's going to win though

Anxiety is a conditional disorder. Nick Diaz doesn't pick and choose when to feel up for the media bombardment. One day he could feel fine and relatively anxiety free, the next day he could be having a melt down.
