Its true to say that the Diaz bros are not the smartest sausages in the frying pan but it cant be argued that they are not smart fighters.

While their shenanigans outside the ring are bad I do enjoy watching them both fight.

Personally I quite like their "**** authority" attitude, the thing I respect about it, is that they are being genuine. As opposed to when Tito does it, it feels like the WWE sherade. I don't agree with it, infact I think most of the stuff they say is fairly ignorant. But I always respect a man who stands up for his beliefs and principles- to an extent. Before one of you smart-asses mentions extremists

However, I will agree with you that they have made stupid decisions that will forever put a dent in any legacy they may leave. Nick especially.

I'm irritated at Nick and his glamorization of pot. Hell I smoke the stuff too much my self, but I'm not a professional MMA fighter. I'm talking about the gomi incident, what a fantastic win that will be taken away from him. And the recent strikeforce incident, just a waste of time, opportunities, and money. Not to mention his managers, the fans, his trainers. Really stupid move by him.

Nate I don't find my self getting quite as irritated at. Missing the press-confrence was one thing, but I don't quite classify it as bad as some other actions performed by fighters. Who shall remain nameless, I'm sure you can guess.

I probably was being sarcastic in the above post. I think you should flame me for it.

That's nothing but a failure of the system. How many times have you seen other fighters talk about drinking beers? What's the difference? Nothing but politics. Who cares if he had the Gomi win taken from him? Everyone who matters knows who won that fight. Seriously, I doubt Gomi brags about that fight to his friends, about how he would have won had Nick not smoked pot before the fight.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

How is it a failure of the system? It's pretty simple to accept that pot and beer fall under different categories. Regardless of the effects or user. They have different social acceptances. It is a lot more than politics. Politics is the overal surface of the subject but there is far more depth to it.

The win was taken from him, some one must have cared enough to change it. In fact I've seen reputable members on this forum discredit him for it, as well as other professional MMA fighters. I agree with you Gomi got beat fair and square, I don't think the pot played any factor at all. But he should have just refrained from smoking for a couple of weeks.

And come on man, the strikeforce incident? That was a big slap in the face for everyone involved.

Nate doesnt bug me as much as Nick.... if Nick never fights again, i wouldnt lose a minute of sleep over it. to steal Matt Serra's quote "He's a dick.... a very talented dick..... but he's still a dick."

the two are very tough and very talented, just hoodlums too if you ask me.

yeah yeah point at my sig, but that just makes me love him more, people get all on some of the things he's said, then look at Nick and laugh at the dumb disrespectful stuff and laugh cuz its Nick.....

I wonder if there is anyone who dislike both Matt Hughes and the Diaz brothers.

I like the Diaz brothers, they are as dumb as you can get, but they don't seem like Bullies, and thats pretty much the only thing that I dislike in people.

I dont think your first and second paragraph are reconicilable.

the strikeforce incident was more muddied, although i'd be as willing to chalk it up to armando garcia's sleaziness as nick's behavior.
