(Instagram: Letting the whole world see images of intimate moments that will later fill you with sadness and loathing since 2010.)
Last week, Nick Diaz posted a picture of himself with a woman he identified as his ex, and wrote “Never Post pictures of your girlfriend on Instagram Especially if you love her. #xgf #x #ftw #hatelife #might #have #to #slap #the #winner #tomorrow #need #a #fight #danawhite.”
As best as we could guess, Nick was saying that he wasn’t in a good emotional place right now, probably because of a recent break-up, and he wanted to fight the winner of UFC 162‘s main event between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman. Now, Diaz calling out the winner of a middleweight title fight despite his two-fight losing streak at welterweight makes about as much sense as him saying not to post pictures of a girlfriend on an Instagram post where he posts a picture of a girlfriend, but dammit we were intrigued.
At the UFC 162 post event scrum, Dana White confirmed that Diaz had contacted him directly, asking to come out of his self-described retirement and fight again. “[Nick] texted me that he broke up with his girlfriend and he wants to fight,” White told reporters.
Dang, having any sort of fame must seriously suck. Nick can’t get high, get his ass beat, break up with a girlfriend, or text his boss without the whole world seeing or being told about it.
We suppose doing a half-assed job of promoting his new, surprisingly good MMA promotion, and doing triathlons more often and casually than most people stretch isn’t keeping Nick happy these days. Every time he tries to get out, MMA keeps pulling him back in. But hey, you didn’t believe that retirement bullshit was real in the first place, did you?
Now that Diaz is back, who do you want to see him fight next, ‘Tater tots? Chris Weidman? Carlos Condit? Anderson Silva? Joe Riggs? Roy Jones Jr.?
