Nick Diaz – More Of a Video Guy

Earlier this week, Nick Diaz pulled a no-show for the conference call with KJ Noons to hype their rematch on October 9 at Strikeforce: St. Louis.

Diaz had his manager and apologist, the great Cesar Gracie, handle the heavy lifting of answering insipid media questions during what turned out to be a really, really dull interview, and I can’t say I blame him.

I’m a Diaz fan. I like his style and heart and he has the best game-face in MMA, so I think his decision to avoid answering silly questions from the assembled media is forgiveable.

Besides, Nick is more of a New Media guy who goes in for digital video over analog telebusiness.

Nick, we salute you:


OCTOBER 9, 2010

Strikeforce returns to San Jose with the grudge match you’ve been waiting for.

In a rematch three years in the making, Nick Diaz puts his World Welterweight title on the line when he seeks to avenge his last loss against one of the most prolific strikers in the business and the last man to defeat him, K.J. Noons.

Also on the card, Sarah Kaufman defends her Strikeforce Women’s World Welterweight title against submission fighter Marloes Coenen and former lightweight Champion and local favorite Josh Thomson (17-3) meets world-ranked Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante (15-3-1) of Brazil.


    I wish I could see Nick Diaz fight once a month-He is in my top five most exciting fighters to watch-All the drama behind the scenes just adds to his mystique

    I have always enjoyed watching Nick Diaz fight mostly because he has great skill both standing and on the ground and always comes to fight but I have thought that he acts like a dick a lot of the time but in this video he has shown a different side and I now have a lot more respect for him.

    nick diaz is a promoter’s dream; with a bad-ass, agitating personality – great for selling fights, an awesome ‘stand right in front of you and fight’ style, slick finishing submissions and coming from MMA’s first family the Gracies, its astonishing Dana wont have him on the UFC’s roster. Id love to see him up against some of the heavy’s from the welterweight crew.

    That mystique is actually the effects of the contact high from when he’s around…
