    That stoners think the Diaz brothers are. The guy is as real as it gets, and only comes to fight. Nate used to be realer, but he's becoming as big a prima dona as Nick is. Nick refuses to work his way up and just sooks his way through a UFC career. Quite sad, to be honest.

    Not even veiled Diaz hate thread.

    Why do you care? just watch them fight when they fight.

    The guy's fucking crazy for sure. What would he do if he were to actually win the title. If that dude were ever forced to wait six months between fights we'd see cocaine binges that put scarface to shame.

    I totally agree, the Diazes are very entertaining fighters but dont really represent the "just scrap" mentality their deluded fans so adore.

    Tis true that the bros Diaz are known for being the "anywhere anytime anybody anyway way" types. But in reality are in fact the opposite when compared to most other fighters. More like where I want, when I want, who I want, and how I want.

    First off I like Cerrone...But Its easy to why some fighters would think he's a bit of a company man/ would sell them out to remain in good standing with Dana. When it comes to complex issues like fighter pay, the UFC being a monopoly, the sponsorship deal and the Unionization of UFC Fighters...

    I think many fighters would rather have a peer that questioned the UFC's practices, rather then simply say 'O well, Uncle Dana has done so much for us....He knows exactly what he is doing... So Lets just take everything that Dana White says at face value"... He strikes me as the type of fighter, who if he got to the top...would simply enjoy the riches that he rightfully earned by fighting a grueling schedule....but wouldn't try to improve the state of the company for future fighters.

    I'm not a big fan of GSP... But his insistence that the UFC clean up their act and have more stringent testing, should be applauded (in fact that was one of the conditions that he mentioned that needed to be addressed for him to return to the octagon). Furthermore, his attempt to fight Hendricks on a level playing field and improve the conditions of the company's drug testing protocol should be applauded... However, when the negotiations hit a snag with Hendricks....Who was the first one to gleefully examine how dumb of an idea it was for GSP to try to use a better means to drug test? Of Course it was Dana White, because the drug testing of his athletes has been ridiculed in the past by the media and he wanted to stick it to all the critics and at the same time kind of put down GSP for trying to change the status quo.

    In short, I like Cerrone the fighter and his fight at any time approach *is admirable...But he would be an even bigger figure/would have more of a lasting impact....If he took up a cause and improved the conditions of the UFC for the entire locker room.


    I also included this long statement from Diaz. I don't follow Nate as closely, but I do think he makes a valid point, when he alludes to Cerrone, not questioning fighter pay.

    I guess he's counting his TUF exhibition fights because Nate fought twice in his first year in the UFC. He fought 4 times in 2011; that's his busiest year in the UFC.

    He's correct that he fought five times in 2006, though.

    Nate Diaz acting like an immature teenager and pretending to be "hard" has really improved things for the fighters.

    Him and his buddy Bobby Green are really going to change the system with their great image and positive contributions to MMA.

    I'd love for Cerrone to fight a rematch with Diaz next, win or lose. But he'd probably have to wait a year before Diaz is ready to fight again.

    This is true. I think 2015 Cerrone beats his ass though. He has improved quite a bit since getting tuned up by Pettis.
