I could definitely see Diaz as a coach as I know he teaches in his academy,and is really dedicated to training etc.
But him being away from his usual routine for so long,and knowing that he'd be stuck in the same place as his opponent for so long, I can't really imagine that but i'd love to see it.

I hope not. Georges JUST coached TUF and Nick Diaz isn't exactly a camera person.

Not sure about that. I've seen some behind the scene footage of Diaz awhile back and I believe there are two sides to Diaz. His teammates continually speak highly of him as a training partner. This also could be the perfect opportunity for Diaz to show Dana and company that he is indeed ready and able to "play the game".

Will it happen? Who knows...but I sure would like to see it.

Diaz has done plenty of interviews for the cameras, he wouldn't necessarily hate TUF anyway and he could bring in all of Cesar Gracie. They'd love him to do that I'd imagine.

God i hope this doesnt happen. I dont know why people want to see Diaz fight GSP. GSP will easily beat him by taking him down at will at beating him via GnP just like he did to Dan Hardy and BJ Penn. Yes Diaz has good BJJ but so does GSP and let's be realistic he's not going to submit him.
Why cant the UFC stop playing games and just give the fans GSP vs Silva already??? It's so annoying that UFC is taking such a boxing-like approach to this subject, it's exactly like PAcquaio-Mayweather at this point.

An entire season of Nick Diaz speaking nothing but mumbly gibberish! I can't even watch a three minute Nick Diaz interview without my ears bleeding how the hell I'm I going to survive this!

Several reasons why people want to see this fight happen! One is Nick Diaz is on a roll! He makes his opponents look like chumps and he makes it look exciting while he is doing it. Also, who else is there? Nobody wants to see a second Jon Fitch fight or worse a third fight with BJ Penn! Matt Hughes and Josh Koscheck are completely out of the picture. Matt Serra pretty much went into obscurity. Chris Lytle lost his last fight. I think Carlos Condit got injured. Also, Anderson Silva is fighting Yushin Okami! Face it! Nick Diaz fight is looking pretty appealing right now.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Sorry, Diaz is a retard. Don't get me wrong, he's a great fighter and entertaining as hell, but the guy is a complete moron. Listening to him talk is one step above pulling all my fingernails out.

I would feel sorry for any fighter that he coaches, much like I do those fighters that Brock is coaching right now.

I'd watch it, don't get me wrong, but I think the fighters deserve better than that.

Plus, It'd be a ton of Diaz talking shit to GSP, only for GSP to crush Diaz like we all know he will.
