I'm really surprised how much the UFC's media representation and the indirect comments GSP made affected Diaz. I honestly feel bad for the guy, no matter how many times it gets explained to him he just doesn't seem to understand the difference between how he is portrayed and who he truly is.

Diaz needs to understand that it is more important to be true to himself outside of work and do his job while he is at work. Most of us have aspects of our jobs we hate, some people hate their jobs period. Diaz needs to accept the fact he will always be portrayed as a villain and roll with it. It really sounds like he is stuck in a high school mentality, worrying so much about everyones perception of him.

Is that really so hard to believe considering he was fighting when he was 18?

Of course he has a high school mentality. He never really left as he transitioned to fighting and that's all he's ever known.

In a way I feel bad for him because he's never been able to shed the 'this is a fight, bitch' mentality. I think he constantly lives with his back up always on edge always wanting to fight because he thinks of the world as such a piss poor place. He always thinks someone is out to get him and someone is trying to take advantage of him. Living that way in unbelievably stressful and no way to live.

For Diaz he looks at fighting as a real fight and not mixed martial arts bout. He doesn't think he is competing. He thinks he is going to fight for his life every time he walks in the cage. At the post fight presser he was questioning why Hendricks and GSP were sitting beside each other if they knew they were going to fight each other. He needs to make the opponent something terrible in his own mind in order to get to that edge where he is fighting for his life, not competing as other fighters see it as.

Only he can change it, but it's hard to shed that kind of mentality.

I think the dude needs some serious psychiatric help to leave his anxieties behind.
