Dana White’s UFC 130 Video Blog # 1

(Video courtesy of YouTube/UFC)

Dana White’s fight week video blogs are back for UFC 130 this weekend, but the most interesting part of this edition is something that happened at UFC 129 last month in Toronto.

At around the 1:00 mark, White has a brief interaction in the locker room with Strikeforce welterweight champ Nick Diaz and to say it was awkward would be a major understatement. Dana tries to make smalltalk with Nick and it seems like he’s trying to talk to a child.

Seriously, does it get any more uncomfortable than this?

White: Did you guys go over to the thing today….the expo?

Diaz: Yeah, we were at it.

White: Yeah? Was it fucking crazy over there?

Diaz: Yeah.

White: Yeah?

Diaz: We couldn’t get anywhere.

White: No? Taking pictures and signing shit?

Diaz: *awkward silence*

And people wonder why The Baldfather isn’t sold on having Diaz coach opposite GSP on the next season of TUF. It would be a subtitled uncomfortable mess. And just imagine if Diaz beats GSP (if they fight), which is a good possibility. There goes one of the UFC’s most marketable assets if he does.

It’s amazing how much more socially adept Nate is than his brother. He makes eye contact, smiles and nods his head to show that he’s listening.

yeah I know it was much, i woulda just edited my post but cant do that. I just rewatched the clip after posting and realized that CP isn't even remotely correct talking about nick. I understand sometimes they do and it will be related to the article, but this is just poor writing in general. doesn't even write the transcript down correctly.

WTF!? Where'd all this hatred come from? And @BigBalluh, you could have stopped at one bitchy post about how Nick Diaz is awesome and everyone at cp is gay, 5 is just too much.

Nick makes Dana nervous, you can see it in his body language. Nick is one guy Dana knows he doesn't have in his pocket.

Love it...Nick gotta be Nick

They should change the name of this website to

Hating on Diaz for a 20 second exchange with Dana when he was making eye contact and wasn't "awkward" at all. You say it looked like DW was trying to have a conversation with a child but then they pan to Jon Jones who is wearing a fucking GSP headband like a 10 yr old wrestling fan. Didn't mention how goddamn stupid that looked did you CP?

yea chop off your fingers you fucking moron! nah i'm kidding. you are fishing for some stupid shit though. one small clip of dana saying hi to nick. this is a fight night. would you expect nick to be very social? no he's helping warm up his boy.
BigBalluh- May 25, 2011 at 11:39 pm
AND nick nodded his head, holy fuck your so off the mark i wish ud chop off ur fingers and do this website a favor.
BigBalluh- May 25, 2011 at 11:37 pm
i just rewatched the clip, nick made direct eye contact the whole time and nick responded there wasnt an awkward silence, dana lookedto the guy next to him, and the camera turned off a second later. you guys are seriously pathetic. how about you write a fucking article rather then bash, or are you fucks too incompetent to report real news?
BigBalluh- May 25, 2011 at 11:30 pm
well he fought BJ but Nick's stand up brings more pressure and his BJJ is arguabley as good, and he has longer limbs. Hopefully GSP wont grease up
BigBalluh- May 25, 2011 at 11:28 pm
He does have a god possibility. GSP will have a much harder time with Nick than any competition he's ever faced, EVER. He has to worry about dangerous stand up and dangerous jiu jitsu, something hes never faced. Shields stand up is shit compared to Nicks, and Nick's BJJ is much better then GSP's off his back. He's guna have to engage nick and take him doiwn to win, which requires getting in striking range. He wont be able to jab his way out of this one.
BigBalluh- May 25, 2011 at 11:24 pm
he's a professional fighter. you wanna talk about how stupid muhammed ali is? fucking arrogant dickheads, learn to talk about something that productive rather then poking at a fighter. hes a fucking FIGHTER. This is why CP isn't takin seriously, cus ur immature as fuck and cant report shit but rather try to be funny by being assholes.
rogerw- May 25, 2011 at 11:24 pm
lol at "good possibility". I mean, seriously?
KarmaAteMyCat- May 25, 2011 at 10:57 pm
You guys hate on Diaz just for the sake of hating on the guy. It's old and slightly retarded. Just figured I'd tell the truth.
RwilsonR- May 25, 2011 at 6:20 pm
It is a "good possibility" that Nick Diaz beats GSP??? Get the fuck out! Are you fucking kidding me?
Eyes red as Fedor- May 25, 2011 at 5:22 pm
Conspiracy theory of the day: Nick Diaz is secretly a CP writer which would explain why these nonstories about him always appear. I love me some some Diaz bros as much as the next bro but this video really had nothing to do with him.

Could just as well have written about Jon Jones wearing a Karate Kid bandana, button down and a vest. Stay black, "Bones"...
Onan- May 25, 2011 at 4:54 pm
So if GSP loses he's no longer marketable?
hooligun- May 25, 2011 at 4:34 pm
who wrote this shit?

unbelievable trying to stretch that barely audible 10 sec chit chat into another example of how awkard nick diaz is.

fuck you and your agenda anonymous cp hack

Kid Clam Curtains- May 25, 2011 at 4:30 pm
What's scary is that's one of the least awkward conversation I've seen involving Nick Diaz. He probably saw the camera and didn't want to come off like a company man. Fuck the man yo.
newdeal- May 25, 2011 at 3:51 pm
unfortunately nate also isn't as good of a fighter (either that or nick is facing cans but with what he did to Daly I think nick is far better than nate)
