Diaz is one of my favorite fighters. But get the **** out if that's how it's gonna be. I hate when people complain about scoring. IF you know it inside out, then exploit it? Or better yet, knock someone the **** out or make them tap like you used to. He has spent too much time in his last couple fights reversing and rolling and flipping and shit instead of just trying to get the job done.

Nick's personality is a big part of why I liked him. Now it's biting him in the ass. You aren't good enough to cry like that. Stay in the UFC, work harder and get it done, or go to Pride and get laid out. Good choice.

zuffa did that on purpose because they found out that he was leaving. so they decided they werent going to have him broadcast and help him if he is going somewhere else.

Nick Diaz is a mediocre fighter. He will get murdered in pride just like he would/did by Sherk/Hughes/GSP/BJ PEnn

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

If he thinks takedowns are worth to much then he just needs to learn how to avoid take downs like Chuck. You dont see Chuck whining about it.:P

What is the story behind the falling out between the UFC and Nick Diaz?

I love watching Nick Diaz fight, he's the name I always looked out for when I was looking at the upcoming fight cards. I hope he does well in PRIDE, maybe they can have him and Lawler go at it again over there. They'd be stupid not to put the fight together if they had the opportunity.

Probably stems from him saying Diego Sanchez doesn't belong there.

If they denied Matt Hughes a shot at Sanchez, I'm positive they would get rid of Diaz to avoid having a shit talker. It's starting to seem that way anyhow.

Diaz sure likes to whine a lot. He's a decent fighter but I don't see how anyone can "dig his attitude". All he does is complain about every little thing. Every interview you see him in he is crying about something. He cries about everything! It's really annoying I don't see how anyone can find that appealing. He's a decent fighter though, but he'll get killed just as bad in PRIDE so I don't see what he is whining about. He acts like people don't use takedowns to score points in PRIDE. Sure he's gonna get taken down, and then get knocked the **** out. He should be thankful for the UFC's lay and pray fighters, cuz in PRIDE they won't be so easy on him.

I dont know he looks pretty skinny for a WW in the UFC even. I dont think this would be a very good move for Nick weight wise because theres really no weight for hi in pride unlsee he bulked up and fought at MW (Pride WW)
