SAN DIEGO -- MMA Fighting spoke to Nick Diaz following his thrilling win over Paul Daley on Saturday night. The Strikeforce welterweight champion talked about the way the fight played out, why he thinks he will get suspended after the fight, why he thinks he is overworked and whether his teammate Gilbert Melendez's win inspired him.

Ok really please stop interviewing Nick. Is it just me or does it always seam like Nick thinks everyone is out to get him.

He got hit pretty hard a couple of times. He probably has a concussion and is getting a medical suspension. As far as what he says about getting fights on short notice, not knowing who his opponent is going to be for sure, and not getting a full training camp, I think he has a valid complaint.

I quit smoking weed when it started to make me paranoid. Nick should consider doing the same.

If it's not his employer, who's doing all of these horrible things to him then?

After rewatching the video I do feel bad that he thinks they wanna get rid of him,and thinks everyones against him.
and if that were true it would only be because of his interviews and what is in my opinion, strange behavior. I think he wants to be seen as tough, but doesnt wanna be the bad guy, Give Diaz as much time off as he needs , say 4-6 months and have him fight Tyron Woodley, and than theres no one left in Strikeforce. Woodley Diaz would be a good indicator of if his take down defense has improved, because Tyron is not exp. enough to stand with Diaz, especially after last nights stand up performance.


Than we can get a superfight of either

GSP vs DIAZ
Jake Shields vs Diaz :
(Diaz wouldnt do it, but I imagine Jake would under the pressure of losing his career. there is president now for teamates fighting each other, and DW could force them to defend the belt imo.

The way he is talking in that interview makes me think he has been racking up concussions and hasnt been getting the proper amount of time off to recover. His paranoia and his complaints of being over worked are likely all result of his brain being battered over the last years and a half.


He REALLY needs some time off!

Nick looking over his shoulder during his interviews is really creepy.

Nothing in this interview really strikes me as out of the norm for Nick Diaz. Have you guys ever heard his legendary cherdog radio interviews?

He doesn't like authority, believes in many conspiracies, and in general thinks the world is out to get him. He has been that way for years, especially since his fight with Gomi.

The crazy part is that I've heard that when he is not around fans/media/promoters, he is a pretty normal guy who is easy to get along with. I have also heard that the subject of mma seems to get him riled up, but that if you talk to him about something like triathalons, he is calm and intelligent.


I don't think it has anything to do with damage from mma, and every thing to do with a very strange personality.
