Diaz was hospitalized shortly following his bout with Mike Aina in Hawaii. Turns out he had a serious staph infection at the time of the fight.

I guess that explains why he wasn't in Nate's corner for his fight.

Is it even possible anymore to lose a fight without offering an excuse? I know Diaz won the decision but still..

He's been in the hospital on an IV for a week after a fight that he clearly won. How is that an excuse? Its not like he said he was sick in the post fight interview. Why can't this be a reason for a lack luster performance and not an excuse? I don't think it affected him that much at the time of the fight. He said he just felt like he ate something bad or it was jet lag. It really hit him after the match.

I am surprised fighters getting sick after they fight doesn't happen more. There defenses are down while cutting weight and it is the perfect time for some infection to take over.

Nick Diaz rules, and as far as I'm concerned this only builds to his mystique. If he had lost, it would be an excuse...but I like Nick so its not.

He dominated that douchebag anyways.

I wouldn't say dominated either, but now that fight makes more sense.

I stand by what I said. Diaz landed 186 punches and Aina landed 67. Thats almost 3X more punches landed. Diaz had two takedowns to Aina's zero. Diaz had 6 sub attempts to Aina's 1. Unless your saying that Diaz's punches are one third the power of Aina's then you have no leg to stand on.

For the stats that I refer to please visit here
