Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

[VIDEO] Nick Diaz’s Bizarre, Insightful, Hilarious, Incomprehensible UFC 183 Media Scrum


(“I hope to in the future and nowadays come off as the best type of role model I can be. You know, even though I’m missing a Wednesday on a big event like this, you know, kids, remember to brush your teeth.” — actual quote from Nick Diaz.) 

Whether you’re a fan of his or not, it’s hard to deny that Nick Diaz is one of the most intriguing/confounding figures in our sport. In a sea of wolf ticket-slinging jabronis, he’s the anti-bullshit superhero that MMA wants, and dare I say it, needs. And my God is the man quotable to no end, whether intentionally or otherwise.

Having now watched his UFC 183 media scrum three times in a row, I can only compare the experience to that of a David Lynch movie — it’s long, rambling, ambiguous bordering on incomprehensible, and by the time it’s over, I’m both completely unsure of what I saw and ready to watch it again. Such is Stockton’s finest. Conor McGregor may be able to capture our attention with his arrogant, self-inflating and occasionally witty takedowns of every fighter in his division, but Diaz’s ability to captivate an audience by saying absolutely nothing while using as many half-uttered words as possible is second to none.

Check out Diaz’s full UFC 183 media scrum after the jump to see what we mean. 

Random Thought: How hilarious would it be if the UFC started employing a translator for all of Nick’s various media appearances?

Diaz: “It’s like, you know, motherfuckers need to take notice, you know? You never know what’s going to happen. I don’t know, I don’t mean to sound like … this is … you know … people need to grow up and be mature enough to handle this shit.”

“Mr. Diaz feels that his employers undervalue him as a commodity and asset to the continued growth of the UFC brand. The security of his financial future remains uncertain at the time being, and he hopes to peacefully resolve this with his employers in as timely a fashion as possible. He thanks you all for your time and wishes you a good day.”
