Still no hope for Mayhem / Diaz

Cesar Gracie recently said Nick Diaz would accept a much hyped fight with Jason Mayhem Miller if Miller met him between their respective weightclasses at 178. Many thought this was the opening needed to make shit come together, but that would be too simple and actually make the fight happen. Here’s Mayhem:

“That’s saying no. He’s saying no. Cause he knows i can’t make that weight he’s like huh lets see how much weight the can’t make and then tell him that – 178. You go ahead and lose like 30 mounds in a month. But it’s so ridiculous. I’ll fight Alistar Overeem, he’s just gotta make 190. That’s it. It’s ridiculous, they’re saying no. Scared, homey. He’s fought at 183 a bunch of times. We’ll do it there. That’s cool with me, let’s do it. It’s just ridiculous, they’re saying no. They’re saying no!”

Why does every major fight in Strikeforce feel like it’s got about the same odds of working out as the Israel / Palestine peace process? Here’s a suggestion: Compromise, dickfaces. Nick’s fought at 180 before (not 183 as Mayhem claims). Have the fight there, and if either guy is going to make 2-3 pounds a dealbreaker then they should both just shut the fuck up.

    Mayhem just played himself. “I can’t lose 30 pounds – I can only lose 25!” DO YOU WANNA BE A FUCKIN’ MAIN E-FUCKIN-VENT FIGHTER!!??!?!

    You’re right tho, he can sure as fuck lose 27-28 if he wants to fight the biggest drawing match available to him. It’s only five pounds below his alleged weight-class

    Still seems stupid they can’t make this happen. I guess we’ll watch them both fight some cans instead. asum.

    Daiz is a 170 lbs champion . I dig Mayhem, but a bout 178 is more then reasonable. If he’s not willing to meet half way he should stop calling out welterweights.

    Mayhem as been spouting this shit of Diaz fighting at 183 for a while and no reporter calls him out on it. Gotta love mma “journalists”. Miller should just go and beat some random bully in his mtv show, he has no place in the ring with Diaz. The champion is willing to go up in weight and meet him halfway and that’s not good enough for this idiot, words of advice: eat less you fat fuck.
