Nick Diaz tells it like it is

Nick Diaz has been on PR duty recently, trying to clear up everything that happened at the last EliteXC show. And if you thought “Nick Diaz” and “PR” were a bad combination, you’re right. While trying to prove that he’s not a total crazy weirdo, he has … proven that he’s a total crazy weirdo. Here’s the best interview out there, it’s a novel but it’s worthwhile to read the whole thing. A few excerpts for you:

“If I have a girlfriend, I don’t bring her to flaunt her. She doesn’t get to reap the benefits of me being famous.

I don’t make that much money, so I don’t get to buy nice things. I can’t afford new fucking shoes. I can’t retire now if I wanted to. I gotta keep fighting. It’s my job. I take it very seriously. I’m very professional.

“Not that it’s un-professional to bring your family. That’s fine, whatever. It’s not like I’m trying to get into a street fight. I’m not trying to do that either. Actually, I kind of avoid one at all costs. That’s why this fucker should have kept his fucking head down.

“He (Noons) brought his girlfriend, and he brought his dad and his mother, who walks around, and what is he doing putting dirty looks on me? Of course, I’m going to tell him fuck you, and he’s going to have to get punked in front of his fucking dad.

“And I’m not calling him a fucker and trying to make him look like a punk in front of his girl and shit and all that. I’m not like that. I’m not going to go – I’m sure he is not conscious of all this shit that’s going on right now. I’m sure that he thinks I’m a real big punk and that I’m trying to start shit with him in front of his girl, in front of his dad, talking shit to him. But that’s not even the case. I mean, what do you expect? You are a stupid fucker, jeapordizing your whole family bringing them – this is fucking warfare. That’s the way I see it. This ain’t no joke, dude. We’re going in there to fight. You’re trying to hurt me. Are you fucking kidding me?

Goddamn do we ever love Nick Diaz in all his crazy glory.

    Nick Diaz should star in a series of public service announcements showing what extreme marijuana use does to someone’s brain.

    Recreational use = good.
    Extreme use = Nick Diaz-level insanity.

  • el feo xiii

    How do you not love this. This is fucking warfare!!

  • Preach

    I can’t help it, but everytime i see Nick Diaz i’m hearing Devo’s “Mongoloid” playing in my head…

  • Dukes

    Nick Diaz is a fucking idiot. Plain and fucking simple. What is all of this “he was putting his mug on me” bullshit? Who the hell talks like that in real life? Nick Diaz appears to be a functional illiterate with the emotional capacity of a turd. For all of his manufactured bravado and chest thumping, you’d think he had a record like Fedor.

    There are some fighters who can create a genuine sense of heat with their opponents, and Nick Diaz is NOT one of them. Nick Diaz talking about “I’m sure he is not conscious of all this shit that’s going on right now”…that’s right Nick! Because “all this shit” is in your fucking head, you delusional idiot! You got beat, fair and square, get over it, hoss.

    Maybe Nick could buy himself some new footwear if he didn’t spend his money on weed? Hmm?

  • Mike_N

    Did anyone read the whole interview? Esther was right: Nick is crazy verbose.

  • Reverend Clint

    Mongoloid… nice call!

  • pauli

    every time nick speaks, fights, or shows up in a still picture, i’m reminded of people complaining about him being kicked out of the ufc. then, i chuckle.

  • garth

    dukes made me laugh

    ok, nick walks into a burger king
    “Welcome to the home of the Whopper, may I help you?”
    “I’d like a #2 wit a…hey, what the fuck did you just call me? A “whopper”? What the fuck does that mean? Are you saying I’m a chocolate malt ball? Fuck you!”
    (fight ensues)

  • yenny

    Nick Diaz is nuts and I love it. I read in a mag about year and half ago about how his HS girlfriend got killed and that he pretty much decided he didn’t anything else to live for except fight (or something extreme like that). I’m gonna have to find and share that.

  • Jackie Chiles

    He would make for a great psychology study because he is obviously insane.

    I predict two future losses for Nick: Sakurai in Japan and Noons in the rematch.

  • Preach

    I’ve read the whole interview now, and man, that kid is one disturbed and delusional individual. If there was ever living proof of marijuana-induced psychosis – it’s Nick Diaz…

  • fightfan

    Diaz, what a tool!!! Moron jack ass nutsack. he reminds me of the high school asshole who thought he was tougher than he actually was. And him and his entourage of 2 were the only ones that believed his horseshit.

    And even after numerous ass beatings, asshole still thinks he’s a hard ass

  • garth

    there was an interview with him a while back, where someone asked him if he was on medication…it was about the diaz-riggs hospital room title fight. where riggs called nate “a barnacle on his ballsack”

  • Whocares

    Nick Diaz is better person then all of you.

  • Whocares is an idiot

    better at being a stupid ass you can go back to sucking off your dad scum bag.

  • Mike_N

    Nick’s ProElite interview with Mayhem Miller is comedy gold; if you haven’t seen it yet, find it and enjoy the brilliance.

  • Steve

    “What is all of this “he was putting his mug on me” bullshit?”

    I have documented video PROOF that it was in fact Nick who initiated this fued by putting his mug on KJ first.

  • RL Dookiefuck

    Nick Diaz is the best. 420 smoke Noons everyday

  • esther

    What did I say about him being verbose? You know, in the last year, I’ve gotten to know Nick, not very well but well enough to know he doesn’t deserve all this bashing.

  • Zane

    Nice try FL, you bashed him too hard to say u like him now

  • MrNiceGuyMMA

    Nick wins

  • fightlinker

    I can’t help it … I find him endlessly entertaining and I do like him, regardless of how many dumb things he says, how comically overweight he shows up to fight at, and how badly he fights sometimes.

  • ekc

    I have a total man crush on the Diaz boys… i have met and talked to them many times.. and yes, they are out there… but they, to me at least, are why i love this sport more then any other sport… they, like Kimbo, came from nothing, i think Nick is a high school dropout, and now they are among the top fighters in the world… i dunno… i just think that is awesome… the diaz brothers are hard to explain, but i just feel, if you get a chance to actually meet them… you will totally be fans.

    but, i am also a fan of Kimbo and Krazyhorse too, when he and his girl are not beating each other up.

    maybe i am just a much bigger fan of true fighters rather them athletes who become fighters

  • dignan

    Nick fucking rules.

    He is a blackbelt in jiujitsu but ALWAYS insists on boxing.

    Fuck hes awesome.

    Come to my new site.

  • MadMan

    Nick & his brother are obviously not gonna win any awards for their intelligence or their couth, but that
    in no way diminishes what they HAVE achieved with
    their tenacity, heart, and desire to be great fighters.

    The Lord blesses us all with our own unique gifts…
    you might be smarter than Nick, but he could likely
    kick your ass :)

  • Zane

    I’m just kidding but I am a Cesar Gracie student so of course I will defend Nick and Nate forever, they are good guys and work as hard as anyone

  • Rob

    I used to dig on Diaz, especially when he was schooling Gomi while still smoking up on the regular.

    But this whole “he was looking at me funny” shit is retarded, juvenile and moronic. He’s a child.

    Not a fan anymore.

  • DannyP72

    I just don’t know how anyone could hate Diaz, he’s just so entertaining.


    Nicely done steve.

  • crs

    “I can’t afford new fucking shoes”

    Then stop throwing them at people, dumbass.

    He’s extremely talented, but tends to be too lazy to show off said talent. Kinda like BJ Penn with anger managment issues and a hydro set up in his garage.
