I unfortunately had to miss the fight, can anyone link me to a video (PM or otherwise) where I can find the whole fight?

Sort of reminds me of BJ Penn. When he doesn't perform he makes excuses and says he's not into the sport anymore.


Now he's talking about the time zone difference between US and Montreal and how he didn't know when to sleep.

For someone who hates to make excuses, Diaz certainly makes a lot of them...

Add the time difference to the list of excuses coming out.

Also saying the UFC should have PRIDE rules.

"I've never paid taxes in my life, I'm probably gonna go to jail. I've had fight after fight after fight, nobody knows that that does to someone who didn't graduate high school." - Nick Diaz

Okay, he's officially brain dead. Just admits to the media he's never paid taxes in his life. Like it's dumb enough to not do it, but to just openly say it to the media who now are obviously going to report it.

Sometimes I wonder what is going on in Nick Diaz' head.

Diaz should be forced into retirement. Someone who has that little mental capacity to start with should not be allowed to trade punches for a living.

I'd be down for a rematch. 25 more minutes of GSP domination.

I don't think anyone here would dispute that. I sure wouldn't. But it's a lame excuse for Diaz to use when he had his ass handed to him for 25 minutes, and half of it was on the feet.

There goes pretty much all the money Diaz made tonight, all back into paying his taxes.

He said that he was really sick and physically couldn't do the show. There were rumors online that he was addicted to adderall but I don't buy that any more than I bought that Lil Wayne was on his deathbed.

I'd like to see Nick Diaz and Eddie Bravo getting high with Joe Rogan and then having a 5 hour episode of the Joe Rogan podcast.

edit: Damn, I'm not the first one to think of Eddie Bravo after reading the word "planet."

Sigh. Same old **** from a GSP fight . He's one of the best and he's smart to use his wrestling to control his opponent but I don't know how people find that exciting. I don't even mind wrestling/grappling but at least try to finish. He had Diaz's back but didn't do anything with it, didn't even try to set up a submission. He had side control a bunch of times but just kept hopping over Diaz and throwing little punches underneath Diaz's arm. He had opportunities to land some vicious knees like he did in the Serra fight but I think he only did it once or twice. Diaz was completely dominated though.

After seeing GSP take some shots in the 4th round, I don't blame him for taking it to the ground. I would just like to see him do more. It looked like Diaz hurt him a couple of times and Condit also dropped GSP in their fight. I think his chin is very suspect but I don't know if Hendricks can keep up the pace.

The Condit/Hendricks fight was awesome. Ellenberger looked good as well.

Maybe I missed out on an earlier discussion because I wasn't near my computer during the fights, but what did people think of the NBK/Hendricks decision?

Also, Diaz better not retire. Still a lot of exciting fights left for him at 170.

Even if he does retire, they should ask him to sit in at some of the press conferences.

I'm of the opinion that a takedown not being scored heavily unless the fighter does something with it (strikes, submissions or advancement of position), but even I had that fight for Hendricks. I was rooting for Condit, but the sheer volume and success rate of the takedowns, plus the good job he did connecting punches early on won him the fight. Condit was fantastic though, especially at getting off his back.

Meh, I think Diaz is a good guy. Most guys in the UFC are. What they do isn't easy physically or mentally and I think he's been through a rough road and it can be difficult for "normal people" to understand that.

Personal matters aside, Diaz didn't fight well and GSP needs to have that killer instinct to go for the finish when it presents itself but he always wants to play it super safe and grind it out till the end. Frustrating to watch because I really want to like him as a fighter.
