I can't help but wonder if Nick's life would have been so much different if he surrounded himself with positive role models and had good sound advice coming from his agent/manager/counselor/coaching staff.
How degrading to be considered one of the best in the world, fight for the prestigious world title, make all kinds of $$, and then hours later be sitting on a curb on the side of the road while your posse is being arrested for totally stupid things, and your training partners and coach are launching allegations that you lost due to illegal handwraps or training camp spies. Nick's life could be so different if he had positive influences. I guess the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. Diaz will never admit he has problems, they are always someone's elses fault.
