Diaz did himself no favors annoucing this publicly.

I have to think that he has some really crappy handlers. His inner circle of advisors haven't convinced him to keep his mouth shut when necessary, they haven't convinced him to show up at obligatory events, they haven't even convinced him to manage his financial affairs to the bare minimum. Maybe they've tried and Diaz just doesn't listen to anybody, I don't know. If he ends up going to jail over it, he'll certainly be longing for the bad-ole-days when he was a well-paid fighter in the UFC.

It just boggles my mind the stuff that comes out of this guys mouth sometimes. If he really has never payed taxes why in the world would he announce it.

He's from Stockton- the only thing the schools teach there is how to walk down the streets and only get brutally beaten vs. killed. I lived there for 4 years- it is an A 1 hellhole and I almost can't blame this guy as a result.

That being said- he has again proved the the world how much of an absolute sniveling prick he is in his comments during the fight and after. I was almost ready to give him credit as he started talking at the post fight interview with Joe- but as it always is with the Diaz boys- it's only a matter of time before crap starts cascading from their mouths. He took the fight with GSP- any idiot knows GSP's game plan- he got thoroughly beaten by GSP's gameplan. He then cries and whines and threatens to retire using the excuse that basically he can't figure out the other guys gameplan and is pissed people don't just stand and trade with him.

Just another way our educational system is failing.
I don't come from that background nor do have i made it big.
But i've no idea how to fill my finance papers correctly.
I just fill the final numbers and deliver it that way.
Sure, i could spend some time studing the thing, but i've recken for a while, that that matter should be taught in school.

I don't know about where you live, but here it's worth paying someone who knows their shit. Could save you a lot of money.

Taxes are simple enough for us regular folk - IDK about the USA, but in Canada it can be done online for free. Couldn't be easier.

If I made Diaz's money, it would be the simplest thing in the world to hire an accountant.

No excuse.
