20 years from now when Nick Diaz‘s MMA career is over and he is holed up in his mom’s house, video blogging about weed, his past glory and cold fission, don’t say you didn’t see it coming.
In this very Dan Quinn-esque video response to Jason Miller‘s recent remarks to Joe Rogan about him on the UFC analyst’s Ustream webcast, Diaz goes off on Mayhem for criticizing his ganster lifestyle and for accusing him for starting the Strikeforce brawl.
Here are the comments from Miller that pissed Nick off:
"Man, fuck Nick Diaz. Yeah, I said it. I feel like he was the driving factor in that whole thing. He was the first guy to throw a punch. He started the whole thing. It’s almost not his fault because he’s retarded. At the same time, he embodies this cultural shift that really started with Dr. Dre selling us NWA and selling us this culture of ‘gangster is cool.’ Gangster is cool in a way, to watch a movie, but being gangster is just being a little kid. And starting a big brawl, because, what, I talked some shit to your homie? That is just ghetto and that thing just embodies what’s wrong with America right now,"Miller explained. "I came out and apologized when all that stuff went down. I was wrong. I stepped in the cage. No one stopped me, so I figured ‘They won’t mind. It’ll be cool. It’ll be a great way to hype the whole thing.’ I got in there and they jump on me. That’s not the correct response. You don’t act like a damn savage."
Mayhem went on to expound on why it is he thinks Diaz doesn’t like him.
"The problem was, Nick, after one fight — I did fuck him up pretty good because after one of his fights, I did the post fight interview, like ‘I’m Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller with Nick Diaz’," he explained pointing the microphone at Rogan to simulate what he did to Diaz in the ring that night. "That’s usually what I do. There was no set-up. It was just a joke, but he didn’t get the joke, though. That’s the problem. I was just fucking with him. He’s just angry with himself that he takes it out on everyone else."

Here are few highlights from Diaz’s side of things:
Diaz’s somewhat skewed take on the Strikeforce brawl:
"I was thinking about your fucking little interview I watched this morning before I left my house and I just want to tell you, ‘Fuck you, alright? Double, fuck you.’ Just so you know, we’re sorry you got your ass kicked by my boy. I didn’t jump you. I didn’t throw the first punch, anyways," Diaz said. "Why don’t you watch the tape? You came running like a bat out of hell or some shit and the banner came down and you charged my whole team so you got your ass whipped. That’s what you get, you stupid motherfucker. I wouldn’t charge your stupid shit fuckin’ six guys, you dumb motherfucker tryin’ to market yourself and put on a whole show. You’re provin’ my whole point."
What point is that exactly?
Nick’s "explanation" of why he doesn’t like Miller:
"That’s what I said from the beginning. We were talking about chocolate while you were trying to make fun of me, talkin’ about how I didn’t get your joke, but I was talkin’ about somethin’ that you weren’t even tryin’ to understand in the first place. Apparently nobody was. Good job. The way I see it, this is bringing it all out to the surface and prove my point. It’s going to prove a whole other point, too and that’s that who said fighting never proved anything. It’s for damn sure proving my point that you just run around and you market yourself, you paint your hair — you got that shit stripe running down your forehead, right down the middle of your hair," Diaz exlained…sort of. "What the fuck is that? You just have that shit — you have a character — and you have to walk around and be that asshole everyday? That’s too bad for you, man. ‘I don’t know why he’d want to live his life like that…this and that, whoopty whoop’ talk shit about me. Look at you, motherfucker; you got gold teeth and funny hair. What the fuck is that? I don’t know why you want to live your life like that, man."
Diaz’s rebuttal to being called "gangster" by Mayhem:
"Whatever, dude. I’m trying to bring back gangster, why? Just because you don’t got no friends. Where the fuck were your friends at, motherfucker? My friend just fought 25 minutes and I’ll be damned if I’m not gonna help his ass out. On top of that you tried to attack everybody," Nick said. "I don’t know who is in there tryin’ to have whose back, tryin’ to take my head off, so if there’s a fight goin onn, I’m gonna be fighting. So you’re gonna go ahead and be mad at me and blame me for jumpin’ you because you got jumped and got your ass whipped and you’re bitter about how you got your ass handed to you? Like, dude, look, your little marketing scheme screws up and now you wanna talk shit about me? I’m all outta favors, man."
