Nick Diaz Admits That He Actually Likes GSP | UFC NEWS


“I like my opponent. That’s why I want to fight him. I don’t mean to say it like that, but he’s the number one guy to beat. That’s what you want. I’ve been wanting his spot. He’s got the spot. He’s the guy to beat. I like him just fine. I had no room to run my mouth and talk. I was promoting this fight. I got the fight I wanted. I can’t complain now. I like him just fine.”

A strangely happy and positive Nick Diaz showed up to yesterday’s UFC 158 press conference and when asked about his thoughts on GSP he humbly admitted that he liked him.

  1. WTF says:

    He’s saying that now because he knows he is going to get wiped out when they fight, now trying to be all nice and maybe GSP won’t kill him in there

  2. Aj says:

    Good to see Diaz with a smile on his face!

    • Quazzi says:

      Yea too bad wat put that smile on his face will prolly cause him to fail a drug test. I like his fighting style but i would be surprised if diaz finds a way to lose this title shot before he even gets in the octagon.

  3. GSP N1 says:

    Diaz likes GSP bc George fought to give Diaz this opportunity. If it wasnt’ for GSP requesting this fight Diaz would be fighting KOS or some other top 10 guy like Jake E. and a 2nd loss in a row sends u in the middle of nowhere in UFC. Just ask Mike Pierce and Rick Story

  4. jesus says:

    GSP wanted the fight cause Diaz talked so much trash. Couldn’t Diaz just be further messing with GSP’s head?

  5. Xaninho says:

    I want whatever he’s smokin’

  6. The Squeaky Wheel Gets The Grease says:

    Diaz isn’t stupid. He is playing the UFC game-and getting paid. While fans ridicule him and talk stupid crap about Diaz, he is getting what he wants-a big payday. He is one of the less than 10% of UFC fighters who earn PPV money. A little talk goes a long way for Diaz. Imagine that: getting paid to talk crap! All the fans here on this board talk crap and end up working at McDonalds! Who’s the stupid one now?

    • Bob'O says:

      LMAO! Exactly. I don’t know what is more pathetic, the idiots who have ruined this website or the morons who allowed them to. It’s a complete joke.

      Oh, Diaz by submission. ;)

      • Bob'O says:

        It’s pukes like me, Bob’O, that have ruined this site. So please help me to leave by everytime you see me post and whine like i ALWAYS do, just tell me to STFU and GTFO FOREVER!!! I won’t listen because I am a piece of shit, but maybe, just maybe one day I will grow up and never come back!!

        • Chart Sharted says:

          Chart, Instead of impersonating everyone why don’t you Go back to your mud hut and poop in that hole in the ground you big headed douche bag.

    • Iron_Monk says:

      LMAO, we all work at McDonald’s…. That is soooo hilarious.

  7. MettaWorldPeace says:

    The shrink said hello and don’t forget you’re next appointment time. Sounds like he genuinely wants to win by not pissing off someone who ran through a guy that beat him while he was on the pipe. Naahh, must be the money this time.

    • Oat says:

      First and 4most he did NOT just run through Diaz, Carlos did the smartest thing by POINT fighting Diaz cause he didn’t want to get knocked out. Carlos talked all this shit about what he was gonna do and if you listen to Diaz after the fight, that’s what he spoke on how he said he would do this and that and ran from Diaz the whole fight getting the points he needed to win LOL. GSP will come in to fight just ask Carlos! Diaz by stoppage! <—- ^^

      • CHRIS ARCTOR says:

        Dude he was saying GSP ran through CONDIT, not Condit ran through Diaz, although I see why you would think that, kind of worded odd.

  8. DeionSanders says:

    If GSP blows his knee and Hendricks fills in, the smile would turn into drool.

  9. Hactor Bumbard says:

    Hactor Bumbard

  10. Enzo says:

    I love Nick Diaz, seems like he’s switching it up to piss off Dana White, lol!!!

  11. Earl Varona says:

    If you’re a professional at any sport (or in life), you would want to take on the harder challenge that will ultimately make you better. So you can hate Diaz as a person but respect him as a professional for taking on the harder challenge.

    But I’m going with GSP with the split-decision.. again. :)

  12. MakoaDog says:

    Lol, he was likely high during the interview…”mellow”

  13. Brutz English says:

    He must have just smoked a HUGE bowl prior to that interview.

  14. blue says:

    This actually makes me like Diaz more. And I’m a GSP fan.
