Nick Diaz Rant of the Day: St. Pierre Is a ‘Little Bitch’ for Letting the UFC Cancel Their Title Fight


(We know, Nick. It’s crazy what you have to put up with. Photo via MarkJRebilas.)

Last night, MMAJunkie posted a lengthy sit-down with press-conference dodging UFC welterweight Nick Diaz, in which Nick shared his thoughts on getting bumped from his UFC 137 title fight against Georges St. Pierre, and subsequently re-booked against BJ Penn. Obviously, he’s pissed and none of it is his fault. To summarize: If Nick had known that the fight was dependent on him showing up to press conferences, he would have attended them, and he didn’t even know what he was being asked to attend in the first place, and he’d already requested that all of his PR obligations take place in California, so what the hell, right?

In Nick’s ever-warped perception, the real bad guy in the situation is Georges St. Pierre, who didn’t protest when the UFC canceled the fight. And now, friends and neighbors, it’s personal:

I really don’t appreciate this mother [expletive] sitting there at that press conference and laughing at me,” Diaz said. “That’s some real bitch [expletive]. He’s sitting there laughing like it’s funny or something. If I saw Georges on the street and called him a bitch, I bet you he wouldn’t do [expletive]. I bet you if I walked up and gave him a slap, I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t do [expletive]. But you can’t do that to me. That’s not how it works for me. That’s something to fight about.

It makes me mad that Georges is going to sit there and call himself a fighter, but he’s not going to stand up and say something about this. He’s going to let it ride. I think I would say something. I would at least have said, ‘I disagree. I don’t agree with canceling my fight because of some dumbass [expletive].’ Instead, he sat there and said, ‘He doesn’t have the commitment to be a champion.’ What is that? I obviously have the commitment to throw my life away. I’ve thrown my life away and sacrificed everything so that I can fight. I did that. I threw my life away so I could work hard and train and fight. That’s commitment…

I wasn’t going to say anything in the buildup to fighting Georges,” Diaz said. “I was going to be really respectful. Georges is a great fighter. But he’s a little bitch when it comes to fighting me right now. Why is he just going along with everything? To say I don’t have the commitment? I don’t understand. He’s the one that doesn’t have the commitment.

I know sometimes I sound like a nut when I’m talking, but there’s a lot of [expletive] to this situation. It’s ridiculous that I have to be the only one explaining what goes on behind the scenes. One of the things that has always helped me out in my career is that I’ve never dealt with this. Other people dealt with this. Now everybody is putting the blame on me. I think that needs to come off, and I think that Georges St-Pierre is a little bitch for not saying anything about it. He’s like, ‘Yeah, switch it to Condit. That’s easier. I’d love to fight my buddy. I’d love to fight my pal‘…

I didn’t know there was a press conference,” Diaz said. “I thought I was going to do some sort of PR video shoot. I didn’t know exactly what I was doing, and they say I wasn’t able to deal with it all. I guess I wasn’t. I was too busy training to whip George St-Pierre’s ass, which I thought was more important...

The bottom line is Georges is being a little bitch,” Diaz said. “He didn’t step up and say anything when the UFC pulled me out of this fight. I understand sometimes you have to do what you’re told, but why wouldn’t you tell the media you still want to fight me? If I was Georges, I would want to fight the best. I would have asked for the Anderson Silva fight. I would have asked to fight the Strikeforce champ. But he sits there like a robot and doesn’t say anything at all, just like he’s not going to say anything about me calling him a bitch now. If I saw B.J. Penn walking down the street and called him a bitch, we would be fighting right there on the spot.

The truth is Georges doesn’t want to fight me in the street or in a cage. He knows who I am, and he knows where I came from. I don’t have the commitment? I’m younger than him, I have more wins in my career than he does, and I’ve worked harder to get where I am. He knows the truth, and he didn’t say anything and won’t say anything because he doesn’t want to get his ass whipped by me the same way he got his ass whipped by Jake – the night we went to the press conference and Georges went to the hospital.”

For the record, St. Pierre’s trip to the hospital after UFC 129 was due to Jake Shields illegally poking him in the eye during their fight. That’s what Nick is taking pride in, here. Just wanted to clarify.

As for GSP not sticking up for him when the UFC cancelled their fight, Diaz has been in the game long enough to know what’s expected of him as a main-eventer. St. Pierre couldn’t comprehend why Diaz would ditch the press conferences, when he took time out of his own busy training schedule to attend, so good luck finding sympathy there. And as for Diaz’s claim that he wasn’t clear on what he was being asked to show up for, it seems highly doubtful considering the lengths that Cesar Gracie went to in trying to make it happen.

At the end of the day, it wasn’t Gracie’s responsibility to get Diaz to the ball on time, and it wasn’t St. Pierre’s responsibility to throw a tantrum to keep the match together. That leaves one person that Diaz can blame. Hmm. I wonder who that could be?

Nick Diaz is a douche. A stupid douche. A stupid aggro douche who is just a scared little boy on the inside. He doesn't want any part of GSP so he fucked off the commitment on purpose and now he's trying to distract from that. It is satisfying that he will never amount to anything but a loudmouth gate-keeper.

Your right...Diaz is right, GSP is bitch that sold-out to the promotion. GSP's only concern is keeping his title and sponsors pacified. Fault him, no...but I sure as hell don't fault Diaz - he trains hard, has natural talent, and is fighter in all the sense.
Malice_Unarmed- September 18, 2011 at 1:27 pm
Diaz is a little bitch and is terrified of GSP, its unfortunate that Diaz will beat Penn and we get to extend this little drama for another 4-6 months.
KarmaAteMyCat- September 16, 2011 at 4:11 am
I admire Diaz style of fighting, I like how he doesn't look at every opponent as his buddy. I may not agree with everything he does but the people who know me in real life know where I grew up and in what conditions. Diaz isn't retarded he's stubborn a bit to stubborn at times but genuinely admirable in his efforts you just have to understand where he's coming from, where he's been and how he got to where he is. The dude understands the fight game really well and who care about what he says about GSP most of you were bitching and moaning about GSP not even two and a half years ago on this very site. It's just a bunch of people calling complaining about the same thing they use to do, tad bit ironic if you ask me. Pot calling the kettle black anyone?

@Drano
When I grow up I wanna be like you daddy. No seriously though Drano to each their own if Diaz beats Penn a lot of people are gonna be shitting themselves and just to have the chance to say “Told you so” I’ll refuse to jump off the Diaz fan base. You now the ironic thing is I don’t really put it out there for a lot of fighters like this. So.. Hey did I mention I’m moving west coast next year? Any suggestion on a good gym I hear theres one in the 209. BAM!
-----------------------------------------
to each their own indeed. BUT I still say in a few more years you will come around to my way of thinking and embrace common sense. It don't mean I don't still support ya, and call you a good friend. I didn't send money to you to go fight cause I thought you was retarded.....just cause you like a retard don't make you one.
Stay away from 209 Karma...don't make me disown you.

You can take the fighter out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the fighter. this dude needs to get a job washing dishes at Dennys.
If there is a problem with the youth of today put this clowns picture on the poster.
Calvin- September 15, 2011 at 4:04 pm
To sum this up, Nick Diaz has no respect for anybody, not even himself. I could give two shits about a guy like that no matter how great a fighter he is. He lacks dignity, and the ability to humble himself when he's clearly at fault. I actually wanted to see that fight but he's too insecure and thuggish, I would hate to see him as a UFC champion(not that he stood a chance against GSP). He SHOULD have switched careers and moved on to boxing, like he talked about, so he could lose those last 3 brain cells he has left. Idiot. Kick his ass BJ!

@xenophon my message was to handsofbutter, hes the one who one who used the serra gsp fight to get his point across wasnt he?

Serra is a great example of what Condit is capable of doing, that was the only reason why I mentioned it.

oh yea forgot......"nuff said" lol
plattdawg1964- September 15, 2011 at 9:32 am
@handsofbutter that was the worst similar fight you could come up with in the world!! matt serra? are you serious? yea he beat serra, but count serra as one of my most favorite, just for that highlight clip where he made gsp look like the little bitch that he is, by knocking him the fuck out!!! bad analogy!! next to hendo knocking bispiiiiiiiiings freaking head off his shoulders, my second favorite clip of "all time" is serra doin the same to that little canadian beeeeotch gsp...bad..bad...bad analogy. now that i got that off my shoulders i can read the rest of the comments where other people probably tell you the same thing!!
J-Dog- September 15, 2011 at 8:01 am
I believe Diaz is right that if Diaz called GSP a bitch out on the street that GSP wouldn't do much. That's because GSP is a professional fighter who gets paid to fight for a living. He's not some stupid half-retarded street thug who is going to get in an illegal altercation over being disrespected. Diaz is such a stupid douchebag. I wish he'd just go away. I hope BJ kicks his ass and I hope GSP gets his chance to do the same.

Ok seriously, Diaz fans really should stop trying to use the argument that "fighters only need to fight and who cares if he didn't show up to a press conference". Maybe at a local event that is true, but at the top level, like the UFC is, these guys have a whole lot more responsibility than just fighting. Maybe 10-15 years ago that was true, when a championship bout netted you $15000-20000. But today, when you make six figures even if you lose, you have to do the media stuff, the expos, the video shoots, etc. It is just part of the job. If you dont like it or have a social disorder that prevents you from fulfilling those obligations, bottom line is you need to go back to smaller shows where that is not required, or just find something else to do. Anyone with this mindset really needs to grow up and try to view this situation as an adult, and not as a high school bully who looks up videos of gang fights and people getting jumped, then root for the "bad guys". Its all good if you like Diaz or are a fan of his, but for Gods sake, it doesnt mean you have to also agree with this jackass move he pulled that cost all of us fans a good fight.
XENOPHON- September 15, 2011 at 4:51 am
Diaz is his own man. He has no college and smokes the best dirt weed he can get. He is naturally a good fighter.
.
I have a theory that 90% of the people on planet are simple. To support this, the fact is 10% of the people control all the wealth through sophistication.
.
Comparing GSP's Gatorade sponsorship to that of Diaz's local "Stockton Chevy dealer" is a great example in with a lack of sophistication.
.
Diaz is right, but his attack against GSP is unsophisticated. If GSP is real about the fight game, he should have insisted that he be allowed to fight Diaz.
.
Diaz's refusal to dress as the organ grinders monkey is not a crime. If Diaz wanted to steal the day, he would enter the ring wearing only a pair of "Dennis Hallman" signatures skivvies.
.
The penalty via change in venue is fine, we now get to see a good line up between BJ and Diaz, while at the same time GSP will have to go head on with boy C. Joseph Condit.
.
Condit is mentally determined and has the skills to bring it more so than Serra. I am going all-in for the kid.
lmc- September 15, 2011 at 3:52 am
bottom line is this, diaz did not fulfill his obligations. the rant is unprofessional and childish. the difference between him and gsp is that gsp is a professional athlete, diaz is just looking to be paid to hurt people and his recent behaviors support that. sorry nick you dick, not everyone thinks the personality disordered, developmentally delayed, street crap is cool. it is tiresome, especially in a sport that is fighting to be legitimate.
oc in this bitch- September 15, 2011 at 2:53 am
holy shit nick diaz is the shit ive always loved this guy never afraid to trade period.hes the most aggressive exciting fighter there is out there .and if u guys cant tell hes a real life badass trust me one wrong word on the street ur missin teeth.hes a real fighter who loves to fight and not only for money.some are real fighters some are prize fighters and thats how it is.who really gives a fuck if he went to some dumbass press conference for real.

Mir please break Brocks neck- September 15, 2011 at 12:53 am
Dana is going to fire Nick's ass after this loss to BJ. Just watch! Diaz will be in Bellator or promoting feminine napkins by the end of the year. "Way to throw it all away duche-bag"! I hope all the weed smokin' was worth it. Guy had a ONCE IN A LIFETIME opportunity to be THE UFC CHAMP.....and he threw it all away. He will N_E_V_E_R get THIS CHANCE AGAIN. He'll be fighting in Jakarta with Tim Sylvia befoe you know it. 100% dumb-ass. PS- The Fertitta's are fucking morons and they like plastic women and plastic people. Someone please do something about these two used tampons. El Duce anyone?
dranokills- September 14, 2011 at 10:35 pm
opinions are like assholes, everyone got one and they stink.
My opinion is that when karma grows up and learns what life is really all about he wont be a Nick Diaz fan anymore and will see with new eyes that todays mixed martial artist must be a jack of all trades, a complete fighter, that means way more than fighting.
Everyone else that i don't care about hopefully will learn a hard life lesson and they to will see Nick Diaz and those like him as rejects of society. And that they really are trash and that their style of behavior is detrimental to steady employment or for that matter freedom from a prison cell. The low standards, lack of education, and gangsta-bitchassery will get them nowhere in their future.

a big hello to my brother from oz.
