    Wait a minute, is this a reverse psychology thing? Are you trying to make me root for Nick?


    Eff it. I'm going to bed.

    Nick is also a shitty employee. If he worked for me, and said the same stuff about me, that he said about Dana and the UFC, I would fire him. And the funny thing about that is, the same thing I tell people at my work all the time: if you don't like the conditions, and you don't like the politics, QUIT. Otherwise, shut the **** up about it.

    He bites the hand that feeds him, disrespects the fans by not showing to public interviews and training, and disrespects the promoters by saying a bunch of bullshit. If that's keeping it real, fine. But I would still fire is real ass.

    Only if they are "all talk "do I agree. If they are doing something about, while bitching, I have no problem.

    You're not going to watch the fights after all this?

    Never cared for Nick. Great skills though. I'm for GSP. It'll probably go the distance unless stopped by massive trauma-like lacerations. I don't think Diaz is bad for MMA. He like the rest of us has his cross to bear.

    The bouts, by themselves, don't offer enough?

    Fair enough. The economics of stupidity. P.T. Barnum wins again.

    I don't like it any more than you or Diaz.... Ok that's a lie.

    I do like to get a feel for the personality of a fighter, it kinda simulates the excitement of watching a friend fight.

    I don't know if I would say Diaz is 'bad' for mma or the ufc. He probably sells tickets ( well who are we kidding..we know he sells tickets). But to outsiders looking in, he certainly reinforces every stereotype that comes to mind.
    Having said that...I don't mind when guys play the bad boy role. But Diaz's comments prior to tonight about being a ghetto tough and blah blah blah...it just came off as really desperate. He knows he isn't. On George's league professionally or athletically, so he goes off on this fucking rant to compensate.

    I like Nick.

    I like him because he doesn't give a ****.

    I want to watch him fight against GSP, I've wanted to see that for a while.

    I'll be waiting impatiently for this **** to go down.

    Edit: Boy he's a dumbass, though.

    Yeah, I guess we will see what he does now? Will he try to do something to change it, or fade into the background?

    One doesn't need to be educated to be a good sportsman.
