It’s Nick Diaz’s World and We’re All Just Living in it… What is Going On in the Mind of the Stockton Fighter? Only He Knows… Prepare Yourself For Some Bizarre Footage…
Right now it seems highly possible that Nick Diaz will never fight again. Nate’s big brother has fought since 2015 when he took on Anderson Silva in a middleweight contest that saw both men cited. Silva tested for PED use, while Diaz was pulled for marijuana use. Both men were served bans and the fight was ruled a no-contest.
Despite being eligible to return, and rumblings that he could be set to do so in 2019, it really doesn’t seem like he’s anywhere close to being ready. He had a strange 2018, with a domestic violence case being thrown out of court and his own vocal flirting with Bellator.
He also seems to be permanently in party mode. Nick’s social media world is a strange place. In the future, it could be regarded as an artistic masterpiece, because he just rambles on and on in barely comprehensible stream-of-consciousness, like James Joyce’s Ulysses. Watch the footage below.
Hello. This is Nick Diaz talking about CrossFit, and GSP’s aquatic training. Good day. pic.twitter.com/YtG3RmVvxl

For some reason Diaz is going off on a furious tirade directed at his arch-nemesis Georges St. Pierre. He fought the Canadian legend way back in 2013, at UFC 158 in Montreal. ‘Rush’ would win by unanimous decision. However, there remains bad blood between the two after Diaz recently accused the Canadian’s team of tampering with his weight-cutting process.
Anyway, Diaz might be interested in getting GSP back into a cage because he directed a load of inebriated abuse towards the welterweight GOAT (sorry Tyron Woodley, another couple of fights and we’ll talk about it).
“F**k CrossFit!” Diaz yells in the Snapchat video “F**k y’all, b*tch. F**k stupid water workouts too, f**king bitch ass Georges. F**king little bitch! Dumb ass bitch. Swim a 100 on the 120, pussy. That’s what I’m saying. F**k that, man!”
Diaz’s relationship with the UFC appears to be at an all-time low. He’s openly flirted with Bellator on Instagram and there appears to be no direct communication between him and the world’s biggest MMA promotion. Younger brother Nate has also had his issues with the UFC and it appears as though fans are losing patience with the iconic duo. In one Instagram story, Diaz wrote:
“F*ck UFC. It’s all about Bellator now at least they pay me. [Bellator president] Scott Coker is a G.”
Strangely you don’t hear many people saying that about Dana White.
The UFC President had been selling the idea that Diaz was set to come back and fight Jorge Masvidal in March. However, that has been ruled out. As White said:
“I think that’s pretty clear. All you’ve got to do is look at Diaz’s Instagram. I don’t think it looks like he’s training for a fight.”
As GSP would say, Diaz is spending a lot of time ‘intoxicated.’ What do you folks think? Will we ever see the Diaz brothers fight in a cage again? Or are you past the point of caring?
