yeah because the job he described is the job a member would make up. but anyways, it is really easy to speak in front of people I used to give massage therapy demonstration and seminars in front of hundred plus people on a regular basis for the school i went to, first time infront of people a little intimidating the rest of them are kinda easy.

Ignorance...stay for a while get to know some members, you act like 500 people are alot...My whole point is its not......The President for arguments sake speaks literally when there is a camera in his face in front of millions and in public several thousand if not tens of thousands....I'm an investment Banker talking to a room full of dudes that give a dam about paying for their kids college education......clear now????

Remember its easy to convey thoughts and opinions with a keyboard its a lot harder when put on the spot.
My keyboard has ZERO to do with being stoned and giving a speech....

Funny when I smoke and speak in front of a boardroom of people or even just in a private meeting I'm baked all the time......I dont sound like that.....and even though I know I am high as hell and for a split second I think well all these people know I'm baked...I dont care, I just keep going...and guess what....I look at them, not down while scratching my neck.....If you think there isnt a slight theme with both Nate and Nick on camera you havent seen many interviews....

LOL...somepeople cant do it, both of them seem to appear not to keen to actually look at the camera or the person giving the interview...

My point is more of the thoughts..all over the place and the non finishing of sentences....

All this said I love both Diaz bros I just laugh my ass off when they get "pinned down" they seem stuck and incomfortable....

Right, I guess never making eye contact, twitching changing thoughts mid sentence, and basically fidgeting the entire time your near a group or camera is just totally normal.....i get the stage fright thing.....the part I think that is being missed is a simple back stage interview like that isn't too difficult.....usually dudes are throw their sponser's and trainers names out no prob, Nate cant finish a sentence ot thought....I would actually guess he ate tons of acid when younger.....

It is painful to hear the Diaz brothers speak. I like Nate and I love Nick as fighters, but it's so clear that they have serious self-confidence issues, likely rooted from being picked on as children.

Nate's communication skills are poor and are justifiably teased by Coldcall. The UFC may want to consider some sort of PR training for some of their fighters to teach them how to address the media. A small bit of training will allow someone like Nate to be more succinct with his points and sound more intelligent. Not everyone is as articulate as Rich Franklin, just imagine Nate being interviewed live on Sportscenter...

It's called a psychological disorder, his labored broken patterns of speech are signs of a speech deficit caused by some kind of social anxiety. Fighters are people too, not all of them love to be on camera, even if it's just a backstage interview. Add copious amounts of psychoactive drugs to social anxiety and it intensifies. Social anxiety or some kind of body-image disorder because he is self-conscious of his appearance, why he wouldn't look in the camera, because he is afraid of judgment. Or maybe he tried to fart and it was wet, I dunno, but something was either temporarily bothering him or he has some kind of mental disorder.

The sports world is full of interviews from inner city kid athletes and thugs, and yes, they're still regularly on Sports Center. The Diaz brothers strike me as having some learning disabilities (not retarded, not linked to intelligence, etc.) and being a bit uncomfortable probably due to years of being teased about it.

It always bugs me when people make fun of other people for not being particularly articulate or polished in an interview. I suspect these are the same quality of people that snicker at cerebral palsy victims in the supermarket.

I talk like Nate does when I am stoned or not on Xanax. If I take Xanax I have no problem talking to people or forming sentences at all. When I'm not on Xanax my thoughts jumble together, I stumble on my words, and I get generally nervous and my mind thinks faster than I can talk...I have general anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder, whatever, cuz my mom was an insanely irritable bitch when I was growing up and always made it difficult for me to talk to her. Maybe Mrs Diaz is a huge condescending bi-polar bitch as well.

Nate's awesome though, I hope he beats Maynard again.

Wow you guys are ripping into Nate harder than he deserves for this interview. I think the fact that he has sort of a high pitched voice with a lisp makes him sound a little childish but that's something he has no control over. He wasn't like Frank Mir confident but I felt like his thoughts were plenty easy to follow and that he did a pretty adequate job in answering the questions. I'd call him boring from this interview quicker than calling him retarded or high or deathly scared (but we all know the Diaz brothers are anything but boring ).

I think Diaz is gonna sub Maynard in the 1st or 2nd round.

surprise, i like the Diaz brothers!!! So what they enjoy some recreational marijuana useage, neither one of them is that articulate but both speak from the heart and tell you what they really think, gotta respect that. Both bring it like they talk it, gotta respect that. Both are Latino, gotta LOVE that!!

Only way to be sure is to spark up a normal conversation with him at his gym or something. A place where he's comfortable, no camera, just a regular deal and see what he's like. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say not much different. But he can fight, and i'm sure if he keeps in the spotlight enough he's gonna get more comfortable and fluent.

When his season of Tuf was going, people were hating him just for his speech impediment, that's was pretty low. But I think his asshole attitude didn't help either.
