MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Nick Diaz Continues to Act Like It’s Everybody Else Who has the Goddamn Problem


(“What the fuck did you just say?” PicProps: Showtime)

Looks like the intrepid journalists at Strikeforce Films had to go to the gym and pull a shirtless Nick Diaz out of a training session in order to actually get him on the record about his upcoming rematch with KJ Noons. This after Diaz no-showed the company’s media conference call on Tuesday, leaving Noons to answer everybody’s questions all by his lonesome. Maybe that was for the best actually, since the last time Strikeforce tried to put Diaz onto a conference call he was so “sleepy” he didn’t really know what was going on. Or Maybe the Diaz Bros are finally starting to realize that talking to the media shouldn’t be their main thing, given how much stupid shit they constantly say whenever they get the chance. No wait, sorry, they’re still totally into doing that.

Anyway, the result of SF Films’ effort is after the jump, and it’s pretty much what you would expect: Diaz continues act like he thinks of himself as a normal, happy-go-lucky guy who just can’t believe that all these assholes keep fucking with him.




(VidProps: YouTube/StrikeforceFilms)

As you can see, that includes Noons and Mayhem Miller, both of whom Diaz considers unworthy of even getting in the cage with him. Unfortunately, Strikeforce keeps insisnting that he fight these dudes and, frankly, that makes Diaz mad.

On the topic of his first fight with Noons, he says: “I wasn’t excited about that fight, that’s why I was running in on him like that and I took those punches. I was angry and I was careless and I was rushing in. I’m used to fighting all really good opponents, you know? I had no idea who this guy was and he wasn’t important … He just had no business being the main event of a show anyway. Who was he? Nobody knew who KJ Noons was. He only got knocked out by one important guy who wasn’t important.”

Yeah, you’re on your own with that last sentence.

Diaz expresses interest in a second fight with Noons only because it gives him the chance to put right what once went wrong, after a doctor’s stoppage halted their first bout at the end of the first round.“If I’m gonna lose, can I lose for real?” he  laments at one point here. About Miller, Diaz is even more chagrinned. He just doesn’t understand why he would fight a guy like that. He simply can’t fathom it.

“I’m not excited about fighting people that aren’t good,” he say. “That’s the thing about fighting (Jason) Miller. I have no problem taking a fight with Miller. The thing is, why does he get to fight me? (Ed. Note: This is why.) I don’t understand that. He just keeps losing and then he gets to fight me? Because I’m not important, right? He goes to Japan and he takes fights with just ridiculous opponents and then makes a joke out of them … I think that’s bullshit, man. I’ve never took a fight like that in my life, I’d never do that. That would be embarrassing for me. If something like that (Sakuraba fight) would take place I would finish the fight in a respectable manner …  I wouldn’t just sit in there wearing zebra pants punching the guy and acting like a fool.”

No, we certainly wouldn’t want anyone looking like a fool here.

@Invictis, right on again brother.
Invictis- October 4, 2010 at 10:00 am
@Fighter2580 Your post doesn't even dignify a response, what are you, 13 years old? "you ppl are fucking retards!!!!Fuck everybody who disagrees! THIS MEANS U IF YOU DESAGREE!!!!" Just wow.

@Nicey I'm not gonna deny that they're socially inept or that they have trouble forming complete sentences, I'm not that naive, when I watch a Diaz video I'm not exactly thinking "Wow, when Nick retires he'd make a great Sportscenter anchor!"

Yes, they are what they are, but they aren't ""White trashy thuggish" socially inept famous people. They're white, and they somewhat portray a thug image, but that's just how they were raised. If you were raised in a poor part of Stockton, it would be hard to make ANYTHING out of your life, I know I for one probably wouldn't be where I am today if I grew up in Stockton. And as to the controversial statements they're making? If you watch the interview above Nick basically explains it himself, he doesn't feel like he should have to go out there and hype a fight up. I guarantee if he would've attended the teleconference and talked a bunch of shit about Noons then he would've got a lot less shit than he is now for NOT attending it, just because of who he is.

Like people say, you either hate em or love em -- the Diaz brothers are both great fighters, but I also understand why some people dislike them. However, some of these same people are huge Lesnar fans, who has disrespected the sport more in his brief tenure than any other MMA fighter. You don't see Nick Diaz getting in his opponents faces after beating them, flicking them and the crowd off, and then foaming at the mouth like Brock. Even after a heated fight, Nick will help his opponent up, Brock's method is more "thuggish" if you want to look at it that way.

you ppl are fucking retards!!! If Diaz was in the nfl , mlb, or nba his ass would be grass for his words and actions of a ten yr old.This is a growing sport that dont need that kid shit from assholes who dont have no brain. Atleast the brainless football players dont act stupid and ghetto like that on tv even though they are from the ghetto. He has a talent and should really thank his blessings that the lord gives him all this to this day Now as far as evrything else goes I love his fightng style and tenasity, but when you start it up with ppl and then try and say he dont deserve a fight, to me that means your scared, or too big headed!. Hes not in th ufc, fuck his record,where is he now ,fighting little guys and so full of himself. Im not a hater, Im not denying he has skill,....just dont talk shit and act like your better than someone when you really have nothing but that belt from a weight class that you shouldnt really be fighting in) and CP fuck those others who threatend your lost of a fan, if I were the site , I would kick em off anyway. Freedom of speech bitches! But not when your Nick Diaz and trying to promote your sport and credibility to it. Fuck everybody who disagrees! THIS MEANS U IF YOU DESAGREE!!! (LOVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH)

Idiots. Look, you can respect the Diaz bros for the fighters that they are. But, when famous people have trouble forming complete sentences, coherent thoughts, any sensibility, make controversial statements, well guess what? People are going to point it out to them how dumb they are! You can't expect journalists to paint a rosy picture of someone just because you like them. They are what they are - white thug wannabe's from effing stockton who happen to be elite fighters. CP is basically relaying the persona that they are putting off - white trashy thuggish socially inept famous people.

Not only is Nick a retard so is his fans.

When calling other people "retards," it's good to avoid the kind of grammar that most 2nd grade students know is really bad. It makes you look...what's the word?
boycottcagepotato- October 3, 2010 at 7:53 pm
I have never really visited this site before but saw the Diaz story via aggregation. Bloodyelbow and mmajunkie don't stoop to this level. I figured it was another post bashing the Diaz brothers for having a Stockton accent and smoking legalized prescribed marijuana. Boy, I was I right.

This article is a disgrace and reeks of immature name calling and baseless insults to one of the top fighters in MMA currently. This is paragraph after paragraph of calling this guy a pussy and making fun of his personal life. What purpose does this serve in any way to the MMA community or in any newsworthy sense.

I personally have met Nick Diaz several times. He is a level headed, laid back guy, who cares about his friends, families. He is grateful of his fans and just does his own thing most of the time, rides bikes, trains, smokes weed, and jokes around with his friends. He is an extremely hard worker and all around an awesome guy. On top of that he is one of the best in the world and what he does. He has succeeded greatly at what he wanted to do with his life and he stays true to himself. Why anyone has a problem with that just reeks of themselves having deeper insecurity or possibly bigoty/racist issues because of where they live. This is totally unacceptable and reeks of a 14 year old keyboard warrior taking out his own issues by using Nick Diaz to get attention. Grow up.

I guarantee you wouldn't dare disrespect Nick Diaz in even the slightest bit if you were to see him in person. Your balls would shrink to the size of raisins and you would vomit from fear before you could get out a single syllable of calling him a dumb pussy pothead.
PurplePancake- October 3, 2010 at 10:33 am
Ah, the Diaz brothers. One of the great polarizing issues of our time.
trianglemother- October 3, 2010 at 10:29 am
@ video
journalism is not a form of writing that is in itself an artistic argument. The job of a real journalist is to report the facts. In two days CP posted two different Diaz Bros. attacks. An argument is when you have two people being responsible for the things coming out of their mouths and backing it up with facts, using your website to write shit about people you don't like is anything but an artistic argument.
I agree with Invictis.
CP to Overeem, "do you use the juice?" Overeem, "no, never." CP "Supercool",
Cp to Diaz, "do you smoke pot?" Diaz, "everyday." CP "Nick and Nate Diaz are pot smoking complainers who won't give an interview."
You really think that constitutes an artistic argument? Sign your shit and stand up for your opinions, that's all.
MoTropolis- October 3, 2010 at 9:26 am
^^Well said...the only thing you should really be hating CP writers for is that they rarely sign off on their articles, which kinda takes away from their credibility. Its almost as if they dont have the confidence to stand by their work or are afraid of the backlash. Man up!
Videodrome_NOW- October 3, 2010 at 8:09 am
I wish I had got in on this earlier. First of all, I love the Diaz brothers. I love Cage Potato. Can they co-exist? Fuck yeah and I'll tell you why because bias journalism(as some have called it here on more than one occasion) doesn't mean dick. Journalism is a form of writing, which, in itself, is artistic argument; to paint the article in such a way to persuade or influence the reader's mind. Do I give a shit whether or not CP likes Nick Diaz? Fuck no. But, they're talking about him which gets others to talk about him, and I appreciate that. It give me something to fuckin do during the day by coming on here and discussing MMA or just to talk shit on the douchebags that think they're awesome because they can type on a keyboard. I don't understand why people would come on here and shred a writer, who is just giving his "biased" opinion, and then come to the comments section and give their own biased opinion about CP. There are other ways of looking at the article other than just bias reporting.

With that said, I'll stick up for Diaz by saying that he is a pothead, which is awesome. Being a hardcore moron( or just someone who doesn't know how to express his ideas and feelings) and smoking shitloads of weed has not stopped him from being a world champion and from throwing 150 + punches in a single round, which again, is fucking awesome.
Invictis- October 3, 2010 at 6:42 am
Alright, so the CP writers ride the shit out of Overeem's nuts(look at any article on Overeem on CP in the last 6 months) and hate on the Diaz bros. This is starting to piss me off, if I wanted incredibly biased, anti-diaz articles I would just read Mayhem's site. Yet instead of giving credit to the natural talent that the Diaz brothers have("Nick has to run a triathalon just to make WW!") yeah that's the only reason he does it...CP shows love for Overeem who juices more than Barry Bonds did in his prime, but makes the Diaz bros look like basically retards.

Yeah, they aren't very well spoken(I mean shit they hate interviews), but like Joe Rogan said, "Nick Diaz may not be the most socially inept guy in the world but physically that guy is very intelligent. Look at his jui-jitsu and the way he fights, that takes intelligence. Just because he's not focusing it in other areas of his life doesn't mean you're not intelligent. When you're that good, there's no doubt you're very intelligent."

I've been a reader for years, I think it's time for a new MMA site -- I was contemplating it a while ago but this article just put the nail in the coffin. How can anyone even take this site remotely seriously after this.(Except for the delusional MTV fans that love Mayhem)

@Drano, yo, Brutha from anutha mutha ( land) looks like we're gonna have to disagree an this main event as well, I'll be raising frosty ones at ya before during and after as usual Buddy, enjoy the fights my friend, you can give me shit if Noons wins, but I fucken hate that male model wannabe

Peace out Drano, lookin forward to getting drunk again with you from opposite sides of the globe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
aww now my brudda, just hold on a sec, I think diaz is a braindead moron who smokes wayyyy to much weed, BUT I never said I was gonna pick noons to win the fight. I gotta pick Diaz just on all natural brute stupidity and being not smart enough to be afraid of anything. I think Diaz will beat noons ass, give him the finger, and somehow act like hes the best fighter in the world regardless of being on the second string girl squad.
CHEERS to you bro, and a hearty triple aussie to ya. Good on ya.

i seriously cant be the only one laughing at the quantum leap reference in this article. haha
rampageisgod- October 2, 2010 at 10:13 pm
Why is it ok to jump on other fighters(Rampage, BJ, Koscheck, Mir, Lesnar) for shit they do outside of the ring, but as soon as the Brothers McFag get called out, it's not right?
rampageisgod- October 2, 2010 at 10:10 pm
Biased shit? I think not. People are finally realizing that the Diaz brothers are just douchebags of the highest degree. The Diaz nuthuggers are just surprised that they have more sack skin to hold on to. It'll pass.

DiazBrotherFromAnotherMother- October 2, 2010 at 6:42 pm
@triangle
took the words right out of my mouth bro, CP is pissin me off with their biased shit. The author is tryin to make you hate the diaz brothers personalitys because theres nothing he can say about their actual fighting skills, which is what i watch fights for. This isnt american fuckin idol, i dont watch guys like anderson silva fight because their such "nice guys" or their real "classy gentlemen" to the media. I watch them bust heads and break bones. what i mean by that is i watch MMA, not The Hills.
and yet again Drano, shut ur mouth u ignorant faggot

Once again, Nick's pensive, thoughtful demeanor gave fans a remarkable insight into the human being behind the fighter's persona.
Ye, ha may not be the greatest interviewee on the planet, but I love watchin the Diaz boys fight and I enjoy their attitude, it makes me smile, we all know and have met heaps of guys like these boys, good on em I say, stay true bra's
W0LFFOX- October 2, 2010 at 5:10 pm
I agree with the concept of this article. Nick Diaz cannot see that what he does outside of the ring matters. Whether public figures like it or not, they are judged on what they do everywhere. Some things can be forgiven. Others are harder to forgive. I think that in Mixed Martial Arts, the expectation of sportsmanship and respectful demeanor is much higher than other sports, and definitely much higher than in the entertainment industry. I hope Nick Diaz works on his spirit so that he evolves as a human being and becomes a better example to his fans. I also hope that if he damages MMA again with outbursts or being a part of a brawl, that Strikeforce will be smart enough to drop him. Maybe that's the only way he will begin to get it.

LOL! Freaking awesome remarks. Cheers to you, sir.
oki-who oki-ryu- October 2, 2010 at 4:53 pm
first off, diaz is no doubt, an amazing fighter. Not an amazing person, but that doesn't matter nor should it. Why is Mayhem worthy of a fight? Well.... look at the other strikeforce ww. Its a bunch of shitty fighters. Mayhem isnt great... but hes better than most of the "shit". Thats why.
