    well, thats one way to make sure no one is going to bother pirating your livestream

  • Timothy Malone

    Is anyone here going to donate more than $3? I want to know if I have a shot at those gloves

    • Cereal Killer

      I’m donating a big fat bag of weed. It’s worth more to him than money.

  • Corey Hutton

    Wow, the perfect gloves to add to your Retarded, Douchebag Collection.

    • Mcgiggity

      Right next to yours.

  • Kickbox Jackson

    Gotta give props, he’s stepping out and giving everyone a chance how much they really care for the sport

  • Randi

    Roberts is no joke….i think Baesman has his hands full… should be a good fight… also looking forward to Clark vs Quitiquit… some good match ups with the up and comers!

    Im totally in support of what diaz is doing. while his promotions might still be in its infancy, it gives fighters an alternative to joining the UFC and allows them to shop around, rather than being left unsatisfied with whatever offensive/BS offer Dana is willing to gives them

    Wow, sad to see nick spinning his wheels and wasting time and money trying to be a promoter. I can’t believe the idiots actually commenting on this as though this will be more than a one time thing . Its sad to see an athlete not using his skills and mind to make his money selling himself to the public and sponsers as all successful stars do , and instead smoking it up and throwing his hard earned cash on something he’s not good at. Nick can’t even promote himself . Sad .

      This is what happens when you’re stoned all the time.

      Too bad he can’t be your little beat-up toy forever and ever.. the guy is a human being, for God sake

      Nick Diaz has been busting his body to entertain self-serving schmucks (like you) for years. Maybe you should jump into a cage and be someone else’s meat puppet for awhile

      I would say Nick has promoted the hell out of himself. He just had a title shot that he was awarded coming off a loss…if that isn’t promotion what is? I think it’s great to see a fighter branching out and becoming involved in other aspects of MMA. If this is a one and done, at least he will come away with a new understanding of what it takes to run a mma promotion. Good luck to him.

  • DamianCross

    As easy as it is to mock Diaz, this is a pretty nice alternative to the UFC’s “give us all your money or Dana will call you a terrorist” business model.

    That said, when the hell did they grant Nick a promoter’s license??

  • MuayThaiFood

    I’ll pony up a sack of ditch weed and a case of Old English 800.

  • aim

    lol sponsors -> Ziggy’s Smoke shop! lol

  • The Best Eva

    The Diaz bros come off as the bad guys but they constantly give the fans what they want.

    I’ll always be a fan.

  • MMAreality

    The weed is really done a number on this guy. How about nick pays me $50 to watch to pay back for the boring GSP fight.

  • james j

    This card is as weak as a match stick
