It was the chocolate that made you sick, not the weed. lol

I've been a heavy pot-head for over 20 years and can attest that it is definitely an anti-nauseate.

My girlfriend had this condition when pregnant (can't remember the name) which is basically an extreme form of morning sickness, except that you're sick all the time and can't keep anything down (even water). Weed was the only thing that worked in stimulating her appetite and abating her nausea.

Saying that, if you smoke too much (especially when you're not used to it or have been drinking) you can make yourself feel pretty sick/shitty. I still throw the odd "Whitey" (as we call it over here) now and again, when I get a little greedy.

Not sure why you compare that to Brock, not being afraid to say what you think is one thing, but since you asked Brock disrespects the fans and the sport by shitting on their sponsers and geting in the face of a guy that was sorta out on his feet.....Diaz Bros dont do shit like that...

Not the same thing

"disrespects" with the "s," insinuates a continual act, when it was an isolated event which got reprimanded for by Dana.

"shitting on their sponsors," clearly retarded, but again, isolated and reprimanded.

"getting in the face of a guy that was sorta out on his feet," Mir brought that upon himself with a year full of unprovoked smack talking. Mir made it personal for a year and when he's on the receiving end of actions from which he'd sown, suddenly Mir's the victim. There's a time frame for marketing and hype (pre-fights), then there's running your mouth without cause, then expecting to be cool with the guy you've been dumping on for months on end, without purpose or provocation, expect to be a dillusional prick.

The Diaz brothers not giving an eff and Brock not giving an eff are not dissimilar in principle, people are just nit picking at what they approve or disapprove of what came from the same type of attitude and mindset. If Brock was DQ'd from failing a weed drug test, I'd argue he'd would NEVER, regain face, but if a Diaz brother does it, it's all laughs & giggles, because "it's just Nick being Nick, he's a Diaz..."

I like Nick and Nate both, more so Nate, but I hear the same people bragging about how they love the Diaz I don't give a rip attitude, then turn around and rip on Brock for not giving a rip

You can get numbness from breathing heavily and the amount of adrenaline your body pumps out in a fight makes it so you aren't feeling pain the same. Weed wouldn't help you in a fight it makes your reaction time slower and isn't stopping you from getting knocked out.

Weed doesn't make you eat anything that is like saying alcohol makes you take a spin in your car. You may want to do basic instinctual acts more on both because your inhibitions are lowered but they don't make you do anything. If you can't control yourself on drugs you can't control yourself off of them. I can get destroyed on weed and alcohol and hold a cogent complex conversation and refrain from doing anything stupid your actions are a you problem not a weed problem.

Weed can give you numbness if you have no tolerance for it and smoke something strong but it isn't anymore dangerous than being drunk and really compared to something like synthetic opiates it is laughable.

1st. I apologize....disrespected........which in no way takes away rom the fact he did it.....

2. Shitting on sponsers and getting reprimanded makes it okay and undoes the damage....c'mon dude...

3. Regardless of what Mir said their is a fundamental way of respect in this sport, even dudes that have hated each other worse never did anything like that......AGAIN, the fact he talked a buch of shit doesnt make it okay ......yeah he did talk shit, and paid for it and while he still hasnt recovered from paying for it Brock is back in his face.....NO respect or honor....

4. Brock and the Diaz bros not giving an eff is very true and that point I agree with you, its just the manor and delivey that the Diaz bros that make their actions different.....

Nate and Nick also arent the same Draw as Brock so his actions are going to have a greater impact....

We just feel a little more relaxed, get the munchies and play xbox more than we should.
So true...so so very true

I agree that smoking or drinking doesn't "make" you do anything but it certainly can inhibit your decision making process and alter your values at the time. Moreso drinking than smoking. But really, being drunk or high is a poor excuse for anything.

Personally, I, at one time, was a heavy smoker and have never felt numbness but I am aware of friends who claim to have "lost feeling" in their hands. I can't say for sure whether that was a gross exaggeration or an outright lie though.

But I have a feeling Nick is a regular smoker so I doubt he received any "performance enhancing" effects from toking up before a fight. I would think the result would be quite the opposite as some have already said.

im going to point out the EliteXC fight when Nick lost to KJ Noons, after pushing the Dr. and making an exit from the ring pissed off, the fans boo'd Nick and Nick in turn flipped off the crowd booing him and last turning back to KJ and flipping him off. So yeah i do think they are very similar.

So your saying to me that you think Elite XC and The UFC are similar.....Those situations are totally diff......Elite XC doesnt exist and never had the sponsers or fan base that the UFC does.......Nick or Nate didnt shit on their sponsers or the ORG's sponsers.....

The acts are similar, but my point was more towards the fact that the UFC has never been smeared like that, no one really cares about Elite XC or what was Elite XC and their freakshow Bimbo.......

great fighters... terrible "ambassadors" for the sport.

I honestly can't stand their antics.

They're a little over the top and very douchy sometimes, but it puts butts in seats.

so.... because it happened in a smaller show, on showtime instead of ppv, and they didnt mention something about a sponsor, that makes it alright?

CC i still like ya dude and have fun debating ya, im just not gettin this one... sorry.


plus no one mentioned that the UFC slandered a sponsor, it was always about Brock. Bud Light never pulled any sponsorship money from the UFC nor did any other sponsors, so again im not quite getting where your comming from.
