I have to admit, that comment really made GSP look like an idiot. I despise Diaz and think he's a real piece of shit, but people give him crap for not fulfilling his media obligations, yet it's okay for GSP to have people tweet for him? I don't think that fighters need to nor should participate in social media if they don't want to, but this kind of proves Diaz's point.

More celebs than you think have someone else run their Twitter. Facebook too seriously.

Oh I know. Believe me.
I'm not criticizing GSP for not running his social media himself, but I think it's unfair to label Diaz as unprofessional and immature for not participating in social media when GSP really doesn't himself.

I'm defending Nick Diaz.
Time for a drink.

I am no Nick Diaz fan and i like GSP but im COMPLETELY siding with Nick Diaz.


Nick wasnt talking shit when he said GSP should get pampered and i would be getting pampered if i had the money. GSP just didnt understand what Nick was saying cause his English isnt that great and he thought Nick Diaz was insulting him. Which Nick Diaz wasnt doing. Then GSP started getting a bit personal with it. And Nick even told him that he does not believe that GSP deserves to get beat down. He also said buncha other things to let GSP know that he is not insulting him.

I know where GSP comes from though because i didnt always speak English and i used to get mad at some things i probably should not have. I like to think that if GSP understood what Nick was trying to express that he would not have said the stuff he did.

holy crap! That got freaking intense! Nick is way way under GSP's skin and GSP is ******* living under Diaz'. If I wasn't hyped before I am now.

People weren't as excited when GSP fought Condit.
Or Kos
Or Shields
Or Dan Hardy

Say what you want, but Diaz has your interest. That is why he got the fight.

Ah see there's your problem: You read the transcript. Listen to the conference call and most of what Diaz says is cleaned up to make more sense than it does.

Nick wasn't talking shit when he was talking about GSP getting handed water bottles and all the other "pampered" things, but he was whining like a spoiled brat who is too stupid to understand the difference between being a professional fighter and being a celebrity. If Nick wants GSP money he should be taking notes as to what GSP does. Not missing conferences, swearing at cameras, flipping off opponents, getting caught for weed, and generally making himself un-representable by a real company like Adidas.

Nick Diaz was acting like he has to work harder for everything than GSP. GSP responded perfectly by reminding him he already had to do the shit Nick has done, just that he was smart enough to know what to do to get to the next level. Diaz, as much as I love him, is too dumb to understand. GSp knew exactly what Nick said, and it is insulting to insinuate that since GSP has more help now that he is somehow undeserving of what he worked for. Nick could have brought himself to the next level years ago if he played the game and made himself marketable, but he chose to do whatever the **** he wanted. Well, Nick, this is what you get.

That was brilliant. I loved every second of it, in fact, I wish it was longer. Seems to me as though they ended it abruptly.

I think it was time for Diaz to have his nap after his nearly incoherent ramble. Georges is right, he really does speak English better than Diaz. I am not joking in the slightest. Diaz could really benefit from speech therapy.
