Faber interview. Talks Diaz, Zuffa and beef



Quote:
“Hopefully Dana will step up [and offer him enough money to stay with Zuffa]. They’ve had kind of a weird relationship over the years because Dana’s a business man and Nick Diaz is good for business when he fights, but he’s known for skipping out on some of the PR stuff. Being a difficult guy to deal with when it comes to promoting things sometimes…I remember Diaz telling me years ago how they punished him for not going on that dating show they were having a couple of fighters go on,” Faber explained. “They would go on this dating show and Nick had a girlfriend at the time and , they wanted him on there for publicity and he wouldn’t do it so they put him and I think maybe Karo on the undercard. Somebody was on the undercard with Nick Diaz…I can’t remember who he was fighting, but… He’s got a chip on his shoulder when it comes to those guys sometimes. They’re trying to help him and he’s trying to help himself, so… I wish the best for Nick, I think they’ll make it work out.”
I dont get Nick Diaz. He says he wants more money. He says he wants to be on GSP type bucks. And yet, he doesn't want to do any PR. Now, to be clear, I don't blame him. I would fooking hate to have to smile and shit for some arsehole cameraman... like some organ grinder monkey motherfuker. F*uck that. But then, I would be happy with the $100k+ I'm getting per fight and shut the fook up.

Like, he wants quarter mill per fight, but dont want to kiss some arse to get it. Welcome to the real world Nick. Either pucker up, or be happy with your lot.

Agreed! If he could maybe prove himself to be worth it as well (he is on the way since his latest KO). They won't pau him top dollar, and ignore his "antics" unless he was worth it, and right now he is not. They are not going to put up with his BS, and pay him on top of that unless he can show them the money as well. IMO however, I don't think he'd be able to pull it off against the top 5 in the UFC. I just don't think he could.

I'd still like to see GSP vs Diaz though, just to see him get his ass handed to him, that would be worthwhile seeing.

I agree with both of y'as. Either do the PR or get ready to be slightly shunned by promoters.

Gone are the days where your fighting does the talking for you...

Nick isn't an extraverted person in general, and doesn't fake shit. In this society in order to make any serious money you need to please the masses. ******* shallow.

Exactly. The reality of the modern sports celebrity is grim.

Too bad for Nick, he just doesn't have the smarts to play the game properly. Doing PR is just how it works - get over it!

What does smarts have to do with anything? It's about perspective and value. If a person values gaining money over anything else, then maybe you are right. However there are some people that value other things over money, such as their integrity, stance, principles, world view point. Also not being taken into effect is a person personality and general temprament. Not everyone is up for that, just like not everyone is up for being a reality star.

Maybe, but he's doing pretty damn well with $100+k a fight and ranked top 5 welterweight in the world. Just saying...what did you do with your HS diploma?
