Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Cesar Gracie’s Pretty Sure GSP is a Big Fat Faker

(Video courtesy of YouTube/ProMMANow)

You would think that Nick Diaz’s camp would cool it with all of the accusations about Georges St-Pierre being scared or faking an injury to get out of fighting their boy now that they got the desired result, but that’s not how they do things in Stockton, evidently.

Dring a media scrum after the UFC 137 presser, Cesar Gracie was asked, in a somewhat baited way if he thought GSP’s injury was legit and he didn’t hold back, although he made about as much sense as his protegee.

“He ran past me earlier. I mean, he literally RAN past me, so… Look, he’s a great guy. He’s a black belt under [my cousin] Renzo Gracie. I don’t know the guy that well, personally, but I’m gonna tell you guys something right now… Nick Diaz missed a press conference and he’s here and [he] fought,” Gracie sort of explained. “The guy that went to the press conference didn’t fight. That’s all I gotta say about it. Nick…Yeah, he got kicked out, he’s this…he’s the bad guy… We didn’t go to what Nick called, ‘the beauty pageant,’ but come fight night you guys saw what he’s made of and he showed up and he did everything he had to and the guys that made the press conference, they weren’t here tonight, so you be the judge. You know what I mean?”

No, we don’t know what you mean since it makes no sense. So let us get this straight, somehow GSP faked an injury to get out of fighting Nick, even though he was scheduled to face Carlos Condit when the injury occurred. Wait, what?!

Then Gracie backtracks on saying that the UFC welterweight champ is faking his injury after clearly implying that he is faking his injury.

“I’m not gonna say that. I have no idea. But I’m saying Nick was injured and he still fought. Nick hurt his hamstring. He’s got a knee injury. There’s this, that… I mean these fighters train so hard that they’re gonna get the injuries and everything, but despite his injuries that guy was here for the fans and he’s a warrior just like BJ,” he said. “I think people appreciate that. But one guy [who is supposed to be injured] jumping off the cage, running around, it’s disheartening is all I’m gonna say about it.”

Then Cesar tried to say he was happy that Nick’s opponent was switched to Penn, even though he still seems pissed off about St-Pierre pulling out of the Condit fight for some reason. Maybe he had money on the bout?

Anyway, Cesar didn’t think the punishment fit the crime for Nick no-showing at the presser. Instead he thought that Diaz should have been fined, which likely would have been worse since we’d never hear the end of him complaining that, “people are stealing money out of his pocket that he could have paid to go to college to learn how to buy a house.”

“I was so mad at Nick and Nick’s like family to me and everything and I understood Dana. You guys saw the phone call, whatever, but I don’t think he should have been pulled out of that fight,” Gracie explained. Now in hindsight I’m glad he did. I’m glad he got pulled out because GSP would have puled out no matter what. Let’s face it.”

tankjones seems to like the taste of Cesars ass.

The Gracie's are pretty well known for being tough fighters who behave like adults. You know they roll their eyes when someone mentions their cousin Cesar. Talk about an embarrassment to the family

Shawn12 makes sense, anyone who cant see it clearly has a bias hatred for the diaz's and their crew, or is stupiiiiiid.

If it was nick injured, and running about, Everyone would be going nuts. But not GSP nut huggers, he never lies.

Either way, Ceasar said NOTHING wrong in this video, and actually gives praise to GSP... What a bunch of clowns some of you are.

Do you have magic glasses you wear when you read articles? You obviously read the article differently than everyone else....I think you're just afraid of Nick Diaz and are trying to get on his good side.
Daldor- November 1, 2011 at 3:21 pm
try to get your face of the loser gracie's ass before you write here.

I really thought Ceaser was more intelligent than this, i thought he has more sense and repect for people, but after the fight where i saw him swearing and acting just like nick i see how ignorant and childish he can actually be. GSP isint ducking, people get injured and people can do certain things with injuries, its what they cant do with them that effects them. Diaz' camp has got to be the dumbest in MMA
BelieveInThePowerOfOne- November 1, 2011 at 1:31 am
2 things here.... 1) I believe GSP would of lost to 209's or 405's or 956's bad boy Nick Diaz... 2) I believe GSP would of lost to Carlos Condit... These 2 fighters are fighters we really haven't seen in MMA recently. Both have heart, both have stamina to go five rounds, both or their boxing is better than most in MMA, both of them are ground specialist who choose to bang... these guys are like cyborg robots from the future sent to 2012 to destroy GSP...

Oh look J3t said an original joke instead of pathetically trolling, if u call original following the lead of the other 50 comments, BTW some of those were gold. I can't believe no one bought up Ariel stirring shit again, I really can't stand this two face fuck. He wasn't baiting Ceaser he straight up implied that GSP was faking the knee injury, what the fuck does he know about injuries and how to rest them, stick to what you know best Ariel which is TMZ style reporting.
smellypiratehooker- October 31, 2011 at 10:31 pm
he's to ugly too be the worlds's champ, the champ should be pretty like me.

The summer just ended because it didn't want to fight Nick Diaz

Yeah, what Shawn12 said.

Fun fact: I didn't bother reading what Shawn12 wrote
dude- October 31, 2011 at 9:35 pm
Rickson Gracie made sure to retire while he was still undefeated for fear of facing Nick Diaz...he still checks under his bed for Nick Diaz

Who's the comprehension-lacking moron who wrote this article? Talk about taking things out of context.

1) Gracie never claimed GSP faked the injury to get out of the fight with Diaz. He didn't even hint at it. He was saying Diaz was injured too, but he still fought. Meanwhile GSP, who was supposedly injured badly enough to have to pull out of his fight, was moving around making questionable movements for someone who was injured badly enough to have to pull out of their fight. He didn't say anything about GSP being scared and faking the injury because of that. It seemed a lot more like he was just questioning GSP's toughness and saying "Look, GSP may have made the press conference but he let an injury lead to him pulling out of his fight. Meanwhile, Diaz may have missed the press conference but he still toughed through his injuries and showed up for his fight."

2) His comments about being glad Nick's opponent was switched to BJ was consistent as well. He said he was mad Nick was pulled out of his title fight and didn't feel he deserved to be. He said Diaz should have been fined instead. Then he said IN HINDSIGHT HE WAS GLAD that Diaz's opponent was switched to Penn since GSP would have pulled out of his fight anyway (meaning Diaz might not have had any fight Saturday), regardless of who the opponent was.

Agree with his statements or not, he didn't say anything akin to the, likely deliberate, misleading effort by the writer.

I don't like Caesar, but his comments here are consistent with each other and don't imply or backtrack at all like the article writer is trying to state. Maybe you should pay better attention next time to what's being said instead of trying to let your obvious dislike for the guy get in the way of sound comprehension.

I don't always drink.

But when I do, I avoid Nick Diaz.
bonesnapper- October 31, 2011 at 6:25 pm
yeah, it happens all the time with diaz, fighters will do anything not to have to fight him....blah, ha,haha, ha, ha, ha,ha...
BaghdadBob- October 31, 2011 at 5:08 pm
Diaz isa perpetual juvenile delinquent but I still hopes he finsishes GSP just because I am desperate to see a GSP fight end in less than 25:00
gilslade- October 31, 2011 at 3:48 pm
I'm actually starting to like Nick a little...I still like GPS more however.

Damn, I hope Nick doesn't find out I wrote this.

@Andy You forgot "Manager" which is undoubtedly where this BS is rooted. "Diaz can pay my bills for a bit longer?? Whatever you say Nick! Yes, GSP is... (WTF? Scared??? Ahh shit... its a buck...) Scared! Yes he is faking an injury to get out of a night with Nick that he wasn't scheduled to fight! Clearly his BEGGING Dana for the fight backs this theory up!"
AndyInflammatory- October 31, 2011 at 2:46 pm
Could you imagine another trainer/spokesman talking that much shit? Cesar is either a street-tough like his proteges, or he's believing his own hype.
AndyInflammatory- October 31, 2011 at 2:45 pm
James Toney called out Nick Diaz.

I think?

Nick Diaz holds the key to curing cancer. Because he's the only one who can make Chuck Norris cry.
Daldor- October 31, 2011 at 2:38 pm
Muhammad Ali is rumored to be ducking Diaz, too.

Gracie, just shut the fuck up.
