All it takes is to watch any Diaz press interview and you can see the guy is riddled with it. It's probably the reason for why he seems so angry with every thing. I think he's one of the most misunderstood guys in the sport.

@Toxic, was only having a laugh matey. The posts I made were all just jokes, I just think it's funny how seriously deadman takes every thing, I can imagine him looking like this at the monitor:



Again, just jokes. You had to love the street fighter story really man. I look like Guile from street fighter
But the fact remains, if Diaz has not been formally diagnosed, then we can't use it as an excuse for his unprofessional and immature behavior. Evidence suggests that he might indeed have it, but I'm of the opinion that Diaz is just unprofessonal and immature. I know a few people with social anxiety that get up and go to work every day and interact with people, even though they absolutely hate it and might make them as you so humorously stated "sweat like Amy Winehouse in a liquor store." They do it without complaints and are professional and polite. Why does/should Diaz be excused for years of unprofessional behavior? Even if he did have social anxiety disorder, he should seek out help and at least attempt to fufill his obligations as a professional.

That's a good point, which is why I was skeptical of the legitimacy of the story. I've heard elsewhere that Diaz actually did finish the primetime special without issues.

If this story is true, it's really, really embarrassing that Diaz is so unpofessional and immature.
I think it's ridiculous for people to claim he has it honestly. Someone with true SAD could not perform in front of crowds like he does. At all. They would be a nervous wreck and probably suffer a panic attack.

What Diaz most likely is is anti-social. It fits his behavior better because he doesn't seem anxious or afraid during interviews. He seems pissed off. I just plain don't think he likes dealing with people. Lots of people possess that particular trait.

Of course that's just my opinion. I may have a bachelor's in psychology but it's not my profession and I have no personal interactions with Diaz. It's based entirely off of his behavior in the public eye and is nowhere close to a definitive diagnosis.

Again, you don't need to be formally diagnosed with it. Social Anxiety is becoming increasingly common in the younger generations, mainly due to technology eliminating the use for face to face communication.

If you're some what decent at reading body language, and reading peoples behaviour, you can tell Diaz has social anxiety and extremely low self esteem just from a five minute interview segment. Seriously.

Unable to maintain eye contact for more than just a few seconds. Very low tone of voice, constant mumbling, hard to understand what he's saying because of it. Incoherent speech, constantly looking down at the floor, agitated and fidgety behaviour (anxious).

The dude has some serious self esteem issues, probably comes from a shitty childhood. I don't for one second believe he's a "bad guy" though. The dude has a good heart really, just some anger, esteem and emotional issues. I want to give Nick a hug.

Not sure, but with it's proximity to Sacramento I would imagine that there would be something around there. Diaz has plenty of resources that he can access, it just seems that he refuses to utilize them. If Diaz does have social anxiety disorder, then I truly do feel bad for the man because I know what a bitch that can be. But at the same time, if regular people with a smaller resource base than Diaz can overcome it, and not act like a twelve year old throwing a temper tantrum, then why can't he?

I don't know if he has social anxiety but all i know is he is awkward around people he doesn't associate with outside of business and marijuana is the tool he uses to help overcome it, that's my opinion on it anyhow I could be wrong

It's much easier said than done. Diaz is probably really embarrassed about it, so he won't admit it in the first place and thus won't seek help to get over his demons.

Different people cope with things in their own ways. I think the irony of it all is how socially awkward Diaz is infront of the media, but when locked inside a cage with a massive audience, he's completely at home. The kid is a natural born fighter, there's no doubt about that. Where as some other fighters get real nervous and anxious about their fights beforehand(gsp for example). The mind is so complex.

I get what you're saying (I really do and I mean no disrespect with my post), but until we're presented with legitimate evidence (a formal diagnosis from a liscenced psychologist), then we truly don't know if Diaz has social anxiety or not even though there is evidence tha supports both SAD and APD. A great number of people have a few symptoms that may fit a profile of a certain psychological ailment, but may not have it. My older brother swears up and down that he has NVLD (Nonverbal Learning Disorder) because he's terrible at reading body language and can't do Math to save his life. But he doesn't really have it, just some of the traits/symptoms.

I'm not saying Diaz does or does not have SAD because I'm an accountant, not a psychologist. But I still don't think it excuses his ridiculous behavior. Sorry.
