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

Nick Diaz Tells Vampire He’s Ready to Take on GSP

Nick Diaz was interviewed Saturday night by a vampire following a disappointing 0-3 showing by his Team Cesar Gracie teammates at UFC 129 in Toronto.

When asked by the sunlight-fearing interviewer if a bout with Georges St-Pierre is on the horizon since his training partner Jake Shields lost to the UFC 170-pound kingpin over the weekend, the Strikeforce welterweight champ didn’t beat around the bush.

“I didn’t know if they’d be talking about [a fight between me and Georges] or what, but you should let me get in there with that guy, you know? They had him in there with my partner and look what happened. to him. What do you think’s gonna happen if they put him in there with me? I don’t know. I’d like to start gettin’ paid up here,” Nick says. “I’d like to get that fight or I’d like to make somethin’ happen here — somethin’ different, somethin’ big, you know? I’m tired of the same thing over and over again. It’s gettin’ old. This is gettin’ old for me. That’s just how I feel.”

Estimating how a fight between him and St-Pierre will go down if and when it eventually does, Diaz, who agreed with Dracula’s assertion that he has better boxing for MMA than GSP, says that no matter where the fight goes, he can catch the dominant UFC champ.

“Yeah, sure. I think [my boxing is superior to GSP's]. I think I’ll put my punches in and I think he’s gonna try to force the takedowns and go for takedowns, but you know, I saw him out there and he’s not much for size so I don’t know if it’s the smartest plan for him either. I feel like it will be real hard for him,” hypothesizes Diaz. “I feel like I’m ready for that fight. I’ve been ready for that fight, now I just feel I’m even more ready for it now. I want to get this show on the road. Like I said, I’m not getting any younger. I don’t think old Georges…I don’t think he’s getting any younger either. I need some change in the lifestyle, you know?”

Finally, the Stockton, California native, who UFC president Dana White will be visiting in the 209 this week to discuss his future with Zuffa, spoke about the possibility that he might try his hands at boxing.

“There’s a lot on the table. I haven’t quite figured out what road I’m going down, but it really doesn’t matter to me either way. I just want more competition. If you’re gonna force me to fight these guys that don’t have it in them to beat me [who] are gonna go for a lucky shot and try to take my head off…A lot of times I eat those punches. I don’t need that. I don’t need to fight a guy who’s going to do that,” Diaz explains. “A guy like Georges, who’s goin’ in there tryin’ to win the fight, not just by getting lucky. I’m tryin’ to go on to bigger and better things. I don’t want to keep fighting these chumps, you know what I mean? If they want to keep have me fight these chumps, I’m not afraid to do that, but I’m not going to step in there and fight these guys unless they’re willing to pay me a lot more money.”

please this guy has fought nobody...GSP has beat everyone in the ww division Hughes Alves Penn Koshcheck Fitch and now the purportedly unbeateable Shields ( and with one eye)To those idiots who call himc too cautious or scared etc He is the best mmma fighter in the world he steps into a cage and fights other great fighters for a living courage into question is moronic. Diaz should fight and win against a top 5 ufc ww before he gets beaten by the best of all time.

This fight would be great, I don't think Nick could stop the takedowns, but if he can GSP will be completely overwelmed on the feet. Also everyone mentioning Sanchez and Parisian when talking down about Diaz must have forgotten that at the time they were considered in the top ten welterweights on pretty much everyones list. Diaz has improved his striking and strength since fighting them, and would run through both of them now.

Nick wont be able to beat Georges...unless he can stop his takedowns...

GSP wont stand with him and he cant stop his shot...

But I would LOVE TO SEE THIS FIGHT!!!

Nick Diaz is a fucking retard.

at least diaz will force gsp to fight, he will not be able to stand in front of diaz and jab him to death like the last few fights. Gsp will not be able to passively lay on top of diaz. Even with the way he's figured to get slippery without breaking rules, he will have to finish or be finished. I'm not saying diaz would win ... but gsp would have to finish or be finished
rampage01- May 2, 2011 at 6:18 pm
diaz vs gsp: gsp take diaz down at will, pass he's guard and beat him up for 5 rds

^Amen

yet another interview with diaz that cannot watch the whole thing , he makes me want to punch myself in the dick to distract from the pain in my brain trying to understand what this burnt out is even fucking talking about.
GSP would destroy you nick, you lost to karo paraisian for fuck sake, GSP is a 100 times better than Him. Fucking nobody Diaz thinking he is somebody after beating more nobodys.
Go smoke a bowl nick your dreams aren't big enough, and you are not high enough to even think you can beat GSP.

Nick is a selective retard, he was very clear when talking to Nate inbetween rounds.
Abe Froeman- May 2, 2011 at 4:35 pm
@RwilsonR...I was thinking the same thing.

Diaz has some severe ADD going on in every interview. He always loses his place...I think that's why he just recycles what he said earlier because he just doesn't remember where he left off or what they were even talking about in the first place. This interview wasn't a train wreck...I think because Dracula wasn't asking run-of-the-mill questions so that kept Diaz attention.

“A guy like Georges, who’s goin’ in there tryin’ to win the fight, not just by getting lucky."
 
That is the closest thing to a compliment of an opponent I have ever heard out of Diaz's mouth. Interesting.

I haven't heard any MMA fighter talk about needing more money more than this guy. It sounds like he's running out of time to pay back an angry drug cartel leader.


Aside from that, he indirectly makes a point that MMA fighters are generally way underpaid and should be paid as much or more than boxers.

I remember when Jon Jones used to fight nothing but chumps. Way back in the day, like 2 fights ago..
The Fresh One- May 2, 2011 at 2:47 pm
Even Diaz knows he's fighting chumps, why don't his fans admit it?
danomite- May 2, 2011 at 2:01 pm
what does diaz mean by "he's not much for size"? he does know that he, nick diaz, is skinny as shit and that Georges is 10x stronger than him right? GSP will ragdoll him all around the cage if he feels like it.

So he can kick Jake Shields ass? that I would like to see, Make it happen Baldfather...

last time I heard have to beat somebody, not a can, to get a shot - don't be afraid homie...
seriouslydude- May 2, 2011 at 12:45 pm
Nick would just get about every finish in pro wrestling done to him, like his bro did. Those Diaz brothers need to munchie with some horse steaks. Seriouslydude.

"I just want more competition. If you’re gonna force me to fight these guys that don’t have it in them to beat me.."

"I don’t want to keep fighting these chumps, you know what I mean?"

"If they want to keep have me fight these chumps.."

That's three times in one interview that Nick Diaz admits to kockin down a bunch of cans. He hasn't fought anybody since Diego Sanchez. Overrated. That being said I'd rather watch him fight over GSP any day.
MMAINMYBLOOD- May 2, 2011 at 12:33 pm
Ok first of all I want seven minutes and forty ix seconds of my life back.. this fucking guy is all over the place.. he makes no sense at all. He needs to learn to speak properly wtf... Im glad he knows how to fight or else he would be another street thug.. Jesus christ people like this make me wonder why we dont toss them into a pile of waste like in the 300 they are obviously fucked from birth.. Thank god I can understand Jon Jones.
rearnakedchickenchoke- May 2, 2011 at 12:24 pm
It's like he's not happy holding the belt. What after GSP beats him? Will he be happy fighting whoever the UFC puts in front of him?
El Guapo- May 2, 2011 at 12:10 pm
^Alex Trebek- Ohhh, sorry, that's incorrect.
