    Not doubting that Robbie takes this, but Nick has always been awkward and uncomfortable in pre-fight rituals like this.

    Nick looking real affected by all what's going 6yrs out is a long time in this fast biz, I also noted in that after that face off Robbie jogged off smiling and air swinging looking real inflated my Tap flip coming...

    There's a decent chance Nick could look really bad in this fight. Like, comically slow. Would be a shame but time waits for no man, especially drug users.

    He wanted a front face off que and got it. The slightly awkward yet slick, absolutely legend of the game Nick Diaz.

    It'll all come back to him once he gets hit. He'll be talking shit walking Lawler down.

    Nick has ALWAYS been a weirdo. You cant judge his fighting ability like that.

    What mistake? He gets to make more money off of Nick, and destroy Nick's bargaining position after he looks terrible. It is exactly what he wants.

    I’m a big fan of nick but he looked confused and in his interviews this week he’s made little to no sense. Hopefully he doesn’t look terrible in the fight this weekend

    I do agree that Nick Diaz *appeared* very uncertain of himself the last 2 days in every situation i've seen of him in Vegas. I think it's been such a long long time since he fought, he might actually be regretting taking this fight. Robbie Lawler appears calm and confident and ready to go. Nick seems a bundle of awkwardness and uncertainty.

    I think there's a distinct possibility that he may look legit terrible in the cage on Saturday night.

    Final comment : I'm really quite surprised that Nate Diaz is absent. I'd have thought he'd have been there to support Nick as he clearly idolizes his elder brother. Maybe Nate will show up Saturday?

    People are overanalyzing every little thing Nick does.

    If you ever watched him fight before, the dude has always been weird and awkward.

    He has social anxiety and shit.

    Judge him when hes in the octagon cause this means nothing.

    I watched the staredown, it was posted in another thread. I can't remember a single time where Nick was like that.

    I was way more worried about Dana's face during the face off. All of that negative energy probably made it a lot worse for Nick.
