Nick Diaz Is Alive and Well, Driving Around Cali and Vlogging About How He’s the Victim Here

(Video courtesy of YouTube/NickDiaz209)

You would think that after screwing up badly enough to have a title shot yanked away and with your future career with your employer hanging by a thread as a result, you might want to, I don’t know, apologize and show some sort of emotion that resembles remorse for your actions.

If you’re Nick Diaz, you pretty much do the opposite of that.

Diaz killed all speculation that he was possibly passed out in an alley somewhere in Stockton, when, just hours after news broke that because of back-to-back missed media appearances his UFC 137 shot at welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre would instead go to Carlos Condit, he posted a video blog titled, “Looks like someone don’t want me to win!” in which he complained once again that he was getting screwed over by pretty much everyone, from UFC president Dana White to his longtime manager and trainer Cesar Gracie.

“I’m trying to get back to Stockton here. I was out in San Francisco at the last minute trying to get on an airplane this morning trying to get to a press conference for the UFC wanted me to fight for the title against Georges St-Pierre and now they’re telling me that they’re going to give the fight to Carlos Conduit, which I think is ridiculous and Georges thinks it’s a great idea because Carlos Conduit poses an even greater threat,” Diaz pointed out. “So I guess that just leaves me out. It’s funny, one second I’m about to come into some money, do a little boxing, you know, fucking probably lose some teeth. But I’m ready to get paid, you know? So I’ll fight whoever, whatever, you know. Anything. I’d definitely rather fight GSP, you know. I was ready to do some boxing, but they didn’t like that, so they got me out of that and they got me in a fight with GSP for the same money or more money or whatever. But now it looks like they get to save money and I don’t get paid.”

First off, how till the UFC save money when all of the billboards, print ads and video promos will have to be recut on top of a metric shit ton of other expenses they’ll have to incur because of the change of opponent? You can bet Dana will make it well worth Condit’s while to step up and take the bout as well.

Still, Nick thinks he’s the one getting screwed here.

“I’m locked in a contract and all these dealmakers making deals. I don’t know. All I know is I’m ready to fight, so I’m sorry I didn’t make it to the beauty pageant, but, you know, I’ve never not showed up to a fight,” he explained, like it excused his failure to meet his press obligations this week. “I’ve never backed out of a fight in my life.That’s not what I do, so I just wanted to throw all that out there. What are you gonna do? I’m ready to fight. I’m pretty much done here. You know what I mean? This is what it’s, you know? So peace out.”

So for those keeping score at home, according to Diaz he was duped by the “deal makers” (likely meaning Gracie and White) to turn his back on his boxing dreams to instead sign with the UFC, which would pay the same type of money and give him more opportunities than fighting cans and has-beens, but because he didn’t feel like going to this week’s “beauty pageants” he now won’t get to fight or make any money, which is ridiculous.

Somebody needs to explain the basic principles of economics to this poor sociopath.

Screw it, I’ll do it.

Nick, if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. A big part of your job is to promote your fights. You didn’t do your job and now you’re suspended without pay. If you weren’t fighting, McDonald’s would likely have instituted the same punishment had you refused to clean the grease traps, so quit playing the victim who thinks everyone is out to get him. The Man isn’t holding you back. Your immaturity and bad decisions are. Know what I’m sayin’?

Don’t be scared to say sorry, homie.

He's always complaining he doesn't get paid enough, but why should he - he's clearly not mature enough to break into the level of the top stars. It's fine if you want to play the rebel and not toe the company line, but don't expect to get paid like someone who does. Seems like a lot of people have lost respect for him over this, and I agree with them.

Seriously. Forget making TUF interactive, just make whether to cut Diaz or not interactive. 50 cents per call to vote. All proceeds go to reprinting the posters.
macreadysshack- September 8, 2011 at 1:37 pm
What a retarded, narcissistic asshole douche-bag. See ya, Nick. Wouldn't wanna be ya.
texican666- September 8, 2011 at 12:41 pm
I hope the UFC buries this poor excuse for a mexicanamerican in undercard hell for the remainder of his contract.

I watched the video...and still I have no idea what's going on.
He was busy boxing is my best guess based on his mumblings.

Actors have to promote their movies, musicians their music. Boxers have to promote their fights, and so should fighters in the UFC. The UFC is a business, and marketing and promotion is a large arm of it. Fighters have managers to hold their hands through the business part of it. Diaz has psychiatric issues, and I comment on MMA sites, so I know what I'm talking about.
k-onda- September 8, 2011 at 8:01 am
Dana's a dipshit getting all like a pissy step-mother on the rag cause his fighters don't know about promoting.
The fighters fight, the promoters promote, both guys are immature, but one of them has the right to be, imo.
Dana's always been like a little bitch overreacting all emotional like when his fighters do stuff he doesn't understand or that don't mesh with his perfect little TV show imagination of how MMA should be.
Still a long way from legitimizing this sport.

Figures he would be one of those assholes who tries to cut in front of everybody on the off-ramp. I bet his excuse is that he was trying to get over in the right lane, but couldn't. All the "exit-makers" were working against him, trying to keep him from leaving the highway.
ArmFarmer- September 8, 2011 at 7:01 am
As for everyone complaining about having to watch gsp "wrestlefuck" another guy when he fights condit... wtf did you think he was gonna do to Diaz? You guys realize diaz had an almost wrestler free career in strikeforce right, and that he got wrestlefucked out of the ufc before that??
ArmFarmer- September 8, 2011 at 6:58 am
I don't get why Dana has such a problem with his antics. Plenty of guys develop "characters" that are an amplified version of who they really are. Look at Chael Sonnen, or Brock Lesnar. Diaz, whether intentional or not, has created a character for himself that's very interesting and marketable. Just roll with it Dana, it's worth more than some dbag politely answering questions at a stupid conference nobody cares about. I think it's funny cagepotato acts like he's such an idiot for losing fans and performing poorly at his job, yet they refuse to do the smallest things to keep their fans. Like remove the captcha, delete spammers, add an edit button, or remove typos before posting their articles. If you work for cagepotato and you criticize diaz for not doing what's asked of him, I personally think you're a bit of a hypocrite.

Dana should tell Nick that if he wants to keep his job, he will need to move to middlewieght. Then Dana should feed him to Paul Harris, then cut his ass after he loses his leg.
SnackDaddy- September 8, 2011 at 6:52 am
showing up to a presser and grunting at every reporter who asks you a question = predictable behavior, maybe even borderline funny
not showing up at all = asking for it
i'm sorry, but there was no excuse for diaz to miss two press conferences in a row, without any notice, after already being warned.
sad, cause it would've been an exciting fight.
jimbonics- September 8, 2011 at 6:49 am
That might explain his brothers lisp. Fuckin couple of mushmouths.
Stak40- September 8, 2011 at 6:26 am
Correction, This was the first GSP fight i was excited to watch.
Stak40- September 8, 2011 at 6:24 am
all yall sound like a bunch of bitches. Somebody else already said it, nobody gives a shit about these things, nobody watches them, especially this far out. Why the fuck would you even want Nick there, to mutter some shit that no one understands and if they did, still doesnt make any fucking sense. I get promoting is part of the job, some athletes do it well, exploit them and dont worry about the other. GSP/championship will sell itself. I mean besides your die hard fans of MMA GSP pulls all the bitches, Canadians and whites folks.Diaz pulls some tokers, maybe. They could have just had a cardboard cut out of diaz flipping the world off and sold more tickets than if he was there. Condit is good but doesn't bring anything GSP hasnt already seen and dominated, Diaz style is what made this fight interesting. Fuck all involved for fucking this up. This is the first GSP fight i have been excited for in a while.
italia furia- September 8, 2011 at 6:23 am
So wait, is BJ off this card completely and fighting someone on a date TBD, or are they replacing Condit for this card?????
italia furia- September 8, 2011 at 6:21 am
behavior reminds me of the portrayal of Micky Ward's brother, Dicky Eklund, in The Fighter...just a thought.
ryangball- September 8, 2011 at 6:17 am
On a brighter note, he is now able to be at a GSP fight and not be getting his ass whipped.
O Chan- September 8, 2011 at 6:08 am
There's nothing sadder in this world than wasted talent.
Seoul Brother- September 8, 2011 at 5:52 am
Nick Diaz is a big fat sandy vagina. What a fucking loser. Yeah, so what if he can fight. He just fucked himself worse than he can imagine. Hope that motherfucker has fun fighting farm animals at state fairs for rent money.
tramadoc- September 8, 2011 at 5:47 am
After reading the insanity that are the comments from Nick Diaz, those are 30 seconds of my life that I will never be able to get back. Diaz is a douche canoe. And seriously???? Eliza Dushku for a Captcha? Now you're just fucking with me.
boomtime- September 8, 2011 at 5:32 am
I think the guy is scared to fight GSP why else would you not show up to the press conference after being warned, shit I would fight GSP for that amount of cash, why is he moaning about wanting paid he never done anything if I don't show up for work I get fired,
p.s fuck that stupid caption thing you have to enter to post on here it takes like 5 shots to get it right inter
