Nick Diaz bloodied B.J. Penn’s face like no other fighter before him at UFC 137 on Saturday night in Las Vegas. His domination was enough to earn Diaz a unanimous decision, but still, something was lacking for the controversial fighter from Stockton, Calif.
“My timing was really off. I didn’t get the right type of sparring that I was needing. I didn’t spend enough time working with my trainer, the way that I should have,” said Diaz, amongst many other criticisms of himself, his circumstances surrounding the fight, and a laundry list of many other issues.
