Plenty of tough guys who will slug it out and do the press tours yeah but how many with the talent of Diaz?

He's a tough guy with world class skills to back it up.

look at the beating he laid on BJ Penn, no one else has ****ed BJ up like that, Nick Diaz is more than a tough guy.

I don't think they will cut him unless he does something INCREDIBLY stupid, he's got a pretty hardcore fanbase, and he's one of those guys you either love or hate, those guys are like goldust to a company like the UFC.

If he fights GSP, It will be ****ing HUGE.

Yeah, his saving grace is that he legitimately is a world-class fighter.

But he's already lost to the interim champ, and he shit all over a huge-money title shot against GSP because he freaked out and couldn't handle the pressure of a simple press conference.

Part of being a superstar fighter in today's age is that you've gotta play the game. That's how you earn the big money, it's NOT just what you do in the cage and Diaz doesn't understand that. There's only so much of his bullshit that the UFC will tolerate. And rightly so, because they invest big money in his fights, and he already has an established history of ****ing them over, costing them lots of money, and publicly embarrassing them. He's world class and draws a lot of fan interest. But he's not THAT big a name that he can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants for as long as he wants, without suffering career repercussions.

Besides, some of the shine will come off of his win against BJ when Rory MacDonald beats the shit out of him even worse.

I think the reason Diaz gets somewhat of a pass is because of his personality, you only have to watch the guy speak for 5 minutes to see he is genuinely not a very talkative/outgoing guy, it's embedded in his DNA I think, that's just who he is.

And I think Dana and the UFC know this and he gets a slight pass for it.

Although your right, if the performances started tailoring off they would get tired of him real quick.

Yeah his personality is a big part of his fan appeal. But he takes it SO far, he's SO sullen and unco-operative that he makes it way more difficult for himself than it needs to be.

They can't just give him a free pass either, because other fighters will see it. Many fighters aren't natural attention whores, and the UFC won't want to set a precedent where other fighters can point to him and say "But Diaz doesn't have to do this or this or this, why should I? I hate press conferences too you know."

Nick hasn't fought a wrestler since he lost in his previous UFC stint. Will be interesting to see how he handles Koscheck if this happens.

Trash talk extravaganza.

The prefight hype might be more exciting than the fight itself.

That would be awfully impressive if Nick could stuff 20 Kos takedowns.

I would rather see Diaz vs Leben. That sounds like a fun fight.

Leben is a MW, though.

Plus, Nick would just carve up Leben's face and batter his body until he eventually TKO'd him.
