USA TODAY: Nate Diaz says sportsmanship doesn't describe UFC
I really like the attitude the Diaz brothers bring into each fight and the view that the person standing across the cage from them is the enemy. That person wants to hurt you and you should have nothing but contempt for them imo.
Obviously inside the cage you will try to knock out your opponent or finish him, it is a combat sport. But outside of the cage you can be very polite and educated.
Fedor and JDS, they are both relentless machines inside the cage, however outside of it, they are nothing but absolutely classy and respectful.
The Diaz brothers really love to make provocations before and during the fights. They talk shit, they taunt the opponents, they act like complete douchebags. Of course they do that to sell the fight and to play mind games with the opponent.
Everyone has his way of behaving.
I don't think the Diaz brothers are as educated or classy as someone like JDS. That isn't a knock on them or whatever - I'm just saying they have a way of acting and behaving because of a certain lifestyle their used to. So does JDS.
Every one has a way of behaving. Get over it!
Diaz brothers are good fighters, but I don't think I would put any stock into anything they say.
Well, he's terribly educated and doesn't understand the meaning of sportsmanship.
Ready to see his next fight. And seriously stoked for Nate's fight on Sat.
Diaz Bros do have a little sportsmanship. After the Condit fight Nick went and hugged Condit and shook his hand.
They are just very emotional people and I wouldn't say that they are dumb, but they lack a certain part of the brain, not sure which though. I just know I used to have a good friend that was just like them. He would get mad at things and nobody could really talk sense in to him and he couldn't explain what he was mad at but acted like he knew things nobody else did, but in reality he was a little slow. The older he got the worse he got in trouble thanks to his piss-poor judgment. I couldn't stay friends with him he got so bad. I saw him on the news the other day for being arrested for stealing copper, a true white trash crime. He has also gotten arrested for stealing meat from the grocery store, meanwhile, he lives with his parents and they have money, so I'm confused as to why this guy is like this, but I swear, he reminds me of a freaking Diaz! He doesn't trust people at all, thinks people are out to get him and has these moments where just goes somewhere in his head and comes back with some crazy ass non-logical ideas. Another thing about him was regardless of how slow he was, he could pick up things about fighting really good, learn moves fast, etc.
I wonder where the Diaz bros would be without mma. I'm sure I remember seeing some documentary about them and Nate saying that Nick saved his life or something by getting him into MMA. I'd love to see what a shrink would say about guys like this. That anger and paranoia...
