Nick Diaz’s Renewed Outlook Heading into UFC 143

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

LAS VEGAS – Nick Diaz, who seemed fired up about how people perceived him following his win over B.J. Penn last fall, seems to be much more at piece with public perception as he heads into Saturday’s UFC 143 showdown with Carlos Condit.

Back in the main event and fighting for the interim UFC welterweight championship, due to champion Georges St-Pierre being sidelined due to an ACL injury, Diaz believes that he has a tougher fight in front in Condit than if he were in the Octagon across from GSP.

Reflecting on how people perceive him, St-Pierre’s injury, and his upcoming bout with Condit, Diaz met with the media at Mandalay Bay Events Center on Friday. Check out the video below…

    Good interview(s). He seems to be getting more comfortable with the media. Hope all the attention doesn’t become a distraction though.

    How in the hell is Condit a harder fighter than GSP?!? Talk about being an idiot! He doesn’t have to like GSP, but to say something that stupid & that uneducated is the MAIN reson people hate Diaz, b/c hes a ******* idiot, who makes absolutely no sence! GSP hasn’t lost in 4-5 yrs & has won 9 straight 8 straight title defences & has been #1 or #2 P4P, but condit is a better fighter than GSP?!? GTFO of here you reject! Condits going to cut u open **** DIAZ!

      He was referring to who has the potential to hurt him the most. “cause damage” were the words he used. I agree with Nick.

      MrAdidas, I almost thought we were on the same page. Shucks!!! I enjoy Condit, but my heart is with Nick! If this was a one bout card, I would still buy it!

      mr adidas, he didnt say who was more effective, he said who causes more damage. think about it you retard… condit has been knocking some people out, who the hell has gsp knocked out? nick is right, and your just a keyboard warrior who is drinking the hatorade

      So people hate him because he’s an idiot? Yeah, that’s a good reason to hate somebody. Wow.
      I will never understand this kind of mentality…

  • RonnieV

    Does Diaz seriously think GSP is faking his ACL injury? paranoid much….?

    • RonnieV

      He’s questioning it simply because at the end of the first Primietime they showed Georges doing some jumping, and light training. When I saw that I questioned the severity of the injury as well. That type of activity is extremely abnormal one month after ACL surgery (I’ve had it, and it sucks). Who knows, maybe GSP is just a medical miracle.

      • TandmWarElephant

        It isn’t likely that someone could recover so quickly from an injury like that. (I also have had surgery, on both knees though) However, based on your diet, your body condition, your athleticism, etc. then paired with “the best doctors and physicians,” I think it is possible for GSP to be doing some light training, I mean just because he jumped up doesn’t mean he is coming down with some out of this world force that would cause his knee to give out… Besides, out of every champ in the ufc i don’t see George being the on to duck someone… Whether any one likes it or not George has beat every top fighter at their prime; Diaz is no different, or even Condit, for that matter, they both pose HUGE threats to GSP; but then again hasn’t every fighter he has fought? I just don’t see him ducking anyone, especially if he said he would fight silva.
