Trying to interview Nick Diaz is a lot like trying to help an elderly person use the self checkout machine at the supermarket. It’s a test of patience and will, and a part of you knows that you never should have gotten mixed up in this to begin with. But, if you keep at it, as Ariel Helwani does in this video, you’ll eventually reach the point where all the groceries have been scanned and bagged, even the produce, and your new friend will smile at you around wrinkled eyes and ask, ‘Who do I make the check out to?’ That’s when it all feels…worth it?
Though at times it seems like Diaz would rather be doing anything else than answering Helwani’s questions, we do eventually get some answers that help us further understand his bizarre and often openly contradictory world view. For example:
– A decision should not be decided by takedowns. It should be decided by who was winning at the end, and who would have won if the fight would have continued indefinitely.
– A decision should be decided by who looks more "fucked up" afterwards. Even if you tapped the guy out but got your ass beat, you still got your ass beat.Read More DIGG THIS
