The 15 Greatest Quotes From the Now-Legendary GSP vs. Diaz Media Call


(Props: mmaheat. Skip to 8:20 for the actual start of the call, in which Dana White announces to everyone that they’re still waiting on Nick Diaz, and Diaz — with perfect comedic timing — says “hello?”)

It’s no hyperbole to say that today’s UFC 158 conference call was possibly the greatest UFC conference call in the history of UFC conference calls. Nick Diaz, who is not known for civility or brevity in the first place, was in particularly batshit form, going off on aimless rants about his “pampered” opponent, and complaining about how he’s not nearly as recognized as he should be, except for when random soccer moms are shouting abuse at him on the streets of Lodi.

At times, Georges St. Pierre was provoked into what sounded like legitimate anger, but he still had trouble getting a word in when Diaz was filibustering, which was pretty much the whole time. (In conference calls, as in MMA, Diaz is a volume striker.) Meanwhile, Johny Hendricks waited patiently for his opportunity to deliver heartfelt lines like “it is what it is” and “take it fight by fight, day by day.”

We can only hope St. Pierre and Diaz’s actual match on March 16th can live up to how incredible this thing was. Check out the full audio above, and join us as we count down the greatest lines of the afternoon…

15. “My life’s a mess. I’m not afraid to admit it. I work hard regardless, through this shit, but I don’t have people toweling me off and handing me water bottles left and right, and getting my training paid for me. I’ve got to do all that shit on my own, and every day I know it, and that’s why I know I have to go that much harder, and concentrate, and do that much more, because I don’t have people taking care of my money or financial tax obligations, or what have you…I’m too busy fighting all your fights, I’m too busy entertaining all the fans. I don’t see anybody else bringing shit to the table.” — Diaz

14. “I think it’s disrespectful that people try to act like I’m not important. You know who I am. Everybody knows who I am. Georges knows who I am. And I know that if I were in his position, I would especially know who I am. Especially. Number one. First and foremost.” — Diaz

13. “Are you listening to yourself, Nick? Listen to yourself a little bit.” — St. Pierre

12. “I don’t know what he’s going through with the whole ‘dark side,’ or where he comes from, or whatever. I know where the fuck I come from. I don’t have to dredge up some bullshit to get everybody excited.” — Diaz

11. “I don’t get a lot of recognition for what I’ve set out to do here…Nobody knows who I am. I mean I guess everybody does, but as far as like your mainstream magazines and your Nike, Adidas, and all your good stuff, you know, I’m left out of that, and uh, that’s too bad for…hello? Are you there?” — Diaz

10. “I never tweet once in my life. I have people doing it for me…I’m not into the social media at all. Unfortunately.” — St. Pierre

9. “I don’t care if there’s a camera crew in the backseat of my car. I could give a shit. I just don’t like when I’m not ready for it and don’t know about it. You’ve got Georges, and someone is over there powdering his nose out, and send[ing] him off for a video shoot. He’s got someone making a Twitter for him. Now he don’t even know how to talk and act right. He’s got people living his life for him in the public.” — Diaz

8. “Everybody wants to know what Georges thinks and what Georges says, and wants to look like how Georges looks, and wear tight shorts like Georges, and get strong, and forget about jiu-jitsu, forget about boxing, let’s do a Superman punch like Georges. Fuck mixed martial arts. Fuck the martial arts aspect, and jiu-jitsu, and where the fuck did you come from, who the fuck gave you your black belt, I think that guy deserves more credit. Whatever. If you want your disrespect, there it is right there.” — Diaz

7. “Let me tell you something, uneducated fool. Listen to me. [Diaz begins to go nuts in the background.] I have not always been rich. I start from the bottom. I made myself, I work very hard to be where I am right now. I know you don’t believe this, because you didn’t succeed yet, and maybe you will never succeed in your life because I don’t think you’re smart enough to understand how you should do to reach that point.” — St. Pierre. He then went on to explain the concept of passive income.

6. “I don’t understand half of the words that you are saying, because your English is… I speak English better than you, man. Talk to me like a normal human being, man.” — St. Pierre

5. “I deserve to get beat down? That’s what you said, right? Who the fuck are you? You know what, honestly, straight up, I don’t believe you deserve to get beat down. I don’t think that. I don’t want anybody to get beat down. I’d like to win the fight. You’re over here you know me, don’t you, you know me real well, you know I deserve to get beat down…I seriously believe that you told that to the cameras, so you believe that I deserve to be beat down…You’re making those statements to the whole world that I am this piece of shit that deserves to be beat down. Then you let Dana talk like I’m the most disrespectful person that you’ve ever met and I deserve to take an ass-whooping and you’re going to beat the shit out of me? And you let him say that?” — Diaz

4. “We’ll go to our next question from Ariel Hel…Helwinny? Please go ahead.” — The call’s moderator. No, I’ve never heard of this Helwinny guy either.

3. “I just don’t like that I’m made out to be this evil person that needs to be shot down, or needs to be conquered, you know? What the fuck? If anything, I’m like the superhero coming in with the anti-bullshit. Give me a fucking break, are you seriously gonna stick to the bullshit forever? This is mixed martial arts, ladies and gentlemen. This is some boring-ass shit we’re watching, and we should see something new as far as I’m concerned.” — Diaz

2. “Check this out, motherfucker. I pulled up to a stoplight the other day, and some fucking 40-year-old lady, some soccer mom, sticks her head out the window and says, ‘I hope GSP beats your ass.’ We’re in fucking Lodi, bitch. I’m like, Are you serious?…I’m living in a fuckin’ small town full of people who hate me over here.” — Diaz

1. “I hope so motherfucker! If I had that much money, I’d be fucking pampering myself the fuck up. I’d be having motherfuckers pampering my shit left and fucking right. There’d be motherfuckers every hour, on the hour, showing up to pamper me out. Period.” — Diaz, interrupting brilliantly when a reporter asked GSP if he was “pampered.”

Too bad the fight will have a lot less action than the conference call - when GSP tackles Nick and humps him for 25 minutes.
hammercock- March 8, 2013 at 10:08 pm
You guys are fags. Diaz doesn’t need your pity and doesn’t give a fuck about your opinions. He is a badass fighter and will take the title from GSPenis. There is no good reason to hate him. He loves to fight.

33:29 is either when Nick's drug kicks in or wears off.
El Guapo- March 8, 2013 at 3:57 pm
Ummmmmm thank you, Gobbles?
I didn't invent poutine, btw, GSP did. And I'm not sure if his eyes are gonna look like that thingy in Fallon Fox's underoos, but they will be swollen.
Gobbleston- March 8, 2013 at 2:34 pm
Ok, so I stopped reading for a second before going passed point #15 to comment, so forgive me if this is somehow addressed further in, but, THERE IS NO FUCKING WAY NICK DIAZ DOES HIS OWN TAXES.
Oh, and @El Guapo : Fries drowing in gravy sounds disgusting, and a one eyed monster is an erect penis.
hooligun- March 8, 2013 at 1:27 pm
If you back GSP in this then you are one boring, lame ass, vanilla bitch. The ONLY way to go is full on War Diaz! Nick and Nate are legendary, if you don't get that, go back to watching college wrestling you sad cunt! Take the Diaz boys out of MMA and our world gets a LOT more bland. Is that what you want?
painvelasquez- March 8, 2013 at 12:33 pm
Where i live its littered with people like nick "the dick" diaz, you know except they dont have bjj black belts and most have an IQ OVER 75. Dont get me wrong im not a GSP fan but i hate the Diaz brotherz with a passion zo this is a toss up for me I truthfully don't care who wins but how awesome would it be if one of them actually died in the octagon.
El Guapo- March 8, 2013 at 12:01 pm
GSP better smother Diaz good(think french fries drowning in gravy and cheese curd, eh) or he's gonna look like a one eyed monster by the 3rd round..
HandsofGold- March 8, 2013 at 10:11 am
This is going to be just like when Benson beat Nate Diaz, every fan boy of the Diaz brothers talked shit about benson after the fight all you bitches didn't say anything, where quite and had no replies, same shit will happen here GSP will dominate Diaz and you girls will be silent..... :)
thegorilla- March 8, 2013 at 10:01 am
Diaz needs to hire Tito Ortiz to do his public speaking for him.
godspeed- March 8, 2013 at 9:45 am
Uneducated fool!!!! Best line since chael said he was a gangster.
dipsetkilla316- March 8, 2013 at 9:31 am
Yea Diaz mumbled, and says things that aren't Quite coherent, but something's he said I understand we're he's coming from. I absolutely hated diaz, but after this I kinda gained some hespect for him.

"I pulled up to a stoplight the other day, and some fucking 40-year-old lady, some soccer mom, sticks her head out the window and says, ‘I hope GSP beats your ass.’"
If only he had a camera crew in his car so we could see that. His car seems to be the only place things ever happen in his life.
smellypiratehooker- March 8, 2013 at 8:34 am
Danomite is absolutely right. Between Diaz's backhanded slights and and contradictions, I can't see how anyone took anything favorable from what he said. And as for him saying stuff like " I would never want anybody to get beat down " and him not wanting GSP to get beat down, that's just Nick's idea of what he thinks people want to hear to get them on his side and him pandering to anyone foolish enough to believe that window-lickers nonsense
danomite- March 8, 2013 at 7:09 am
I'm surprised by the number of people who actually think Diaz came out of that conference call looking like anything other than a whiny moron. The two main points that Diaz was trying to make in that neverending, incoherent, nonsensical rambling was: georges gets special treatment (pampering) while Diaz has had to do everything himself, and that Georges shouldn't be angry at nick and saying he wants to beat nick down because nick hasn't been disrespectful to Georges. First off, Nick is THE MOST PAMPERED fighter in the UFC. He's the only guy I know of with special 'handlers' to make sure he gets to his obligations, he's the only one who gets away with all the bullshit he does like not showing up to press conferences, and he's the only one who gets a title shot coming off a loss AND a drug suspension. Secondly, Nick probably is the most disrespectful human GSP has ever met. Nick spent years telling people that Georges was afraid to fight him, then Nick and that clown he calls a manager, Cesar Gracie, both said that Georges was faking his injury to get out of a fight. You can't call a guy a coward and a liar and not expect him to hate you. That's just stupid, even for nick. The only reason he's backtracking now is because it has finally dawned on him that GSP wants to slam him to the ground and pound a hole in his face and there is nothing he can do to stop it.

I think I pissed myself just a little in there somewhere.

I hope Nick gets a bonus for these press events, because he sure as shit deserves it.
mookiestick- March 8, 2013 at 6:33 am
"You uneducated fool, listen to me…". Even when GSP's pissed he still sounds like a gentleman.
As Good As Anyone- March 8, 2013 at 5:41 am
I actually feel somewhat bad for Diaz here. He clearly doesn't have the lingual skills to express his feelings appropriately which causes all the negativity towards him. Like most individuals with low IQ - he can't control his anger. He seems like a genuinely nice guy if you knew him, but he defends himself completely wrong. Where's the American version of Ed Soares when you need him?
dranokills- March 7, 2013 at 11:22 pm
I have always disliked Diaz, but I gotta say he did say some powerful stuff. Yeah he fucking rambled like a braindead dipshit as well but he did say somethings that made me think, and most of all I feel sorry for Nick. I think it is fucked up that people are driving around yelling at this kid that they hope GSP beats his ass and destroys him....and then even in anger he turns around and says he doesn't want to see GSP destroyed or crushed, or hurt, those are good words. Then most importantly he yells at GSP for saying that he wants to punsih Nick and beat him down, and that fans, and people all over the word pay attention to what George says, and does......and he is right. When you are as famous as GSP is and when you have the attention of the masses like GSP has I think not saying the "right Thing" can lead to more than a fight build-up. When Diaz says stupid shit, nobody listens, they laugh or get mad and call him names , but when GSP says crazy shit, it could cause a fucking riot, or some crazed fan to go burn Nicks house down. GSP has more power with his words because of who he is than most any other fighter. I feel sorry for Nick that his life is shit, but part of me knows deep down he brings most of this shit on himself, simply because he cannot express himself and make the masses see him for anything more than a baked, babbling, redneck who made good.
Fuck it.......maybe just this once........I'm gonna pick Diaz to win a fight.

"You don't know anything about me," St-Pierre said.. "You think I was born rich? I've worked really hard. You have no idea."

"You've worked hard on your backflip," said Diaz.
snoop dog shit- March 7, 2013 at 9:05 pm
Ok I'm not a pothead, I don't give a shit one way or another about weed being legalized, and I haven't done any research on whether or not smoking weed actually kills brain cells but just in the off chance it does Diaz should at least consider not smoking anymore. The guy sounds like he's got two brain cells left and they can't seem to find each other.
OPIO- March 7, 2013 at 9:05 pm
I sympathize for Nick a bit. He is obviously too uneducated but one hell of a fighter that we need more of these days win or lose. Fight to finish.
Sho Nuff- March 7, 2013 at 8:59 pm
I love #1. GSP is a pampered twat. WAR DIAZ!
crappiefloper- March 7, 2013 at 8:30 pm
I honest to God hopes GSP actually kills him in the ring
