    Nick Diaz on boxing Roy Jones Jr: ‘Buy my contract so we can fight’

    Former UFC welterweight title challenger Nick Diaz was in Las Vegas on Saturday night, where he was in attendance for the highly anticipated rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. Following the main event, Diaz spoke with Fighthub, where he discussed his love for boxing and why is able to enjoy them even more this year.

    "I just love to watch him [Pacquiao]." Diaz told Fighthub. "I love the way he fights. I try and take what I can. This year has been good to me because I can go out and make a lot of these boxing shows. Usually I have to fight. People don't think I am a serious boxing fan but most of the time I had 3 to 6 fights a year in a career that lasted 13 years."

    Diaz, although seemingly distracted during the interview, appeared to show interest in a potential boxing match against Roy Jones Jr, as he pleaded for the boxing legend to buy out his UFC contract so that it may become a reality.

    ‘If I could get somebody to buy my contract out from the UFC, I'd be fighting out here. Tell this guy [Roy Jones Jr.] to buy my contract so we can fight."

    Reverting back to his status with the UFC, Diaz made it clear that he is interested in a title shot against Johny Hendricks, but does not expect to return to fighting unless the UFC is willing to renegotiate his contract.

    "I'd like to fight for the world title against Johny Hendricks but these guys [the UFC] are kinda holding out. I'm trying to renegotiate my contract and negotiate some fights for this year. I don't know what will happen, maybe nothing. That's fine. Either way I can't complain. I had a good run. I've already had 37 fights but I would like to make a boxing run. It is up to Dana White and up to who's got the real money."

    He did have crazy little man syndrome, severe narcissism and will be forever remembered as a major douche.

    Historical figure bashing?

    Riv is so old, Father Time loses the fight to him.

    Hell, I remember when Father Time was a punkass kid with a paper route.

    My social security number is a pebble.
    Because I predate the Indo-Arabic numeral system.

    it makes me laugh that you think understanding the actual meaning of words is interchangeable with grammar.

    Hopefully Nick can come out of retirement and fight in the UFC. In the octagon, he's thrilling to watch and puts on great fights win or lose. His antics while fighting (taunting, etc) I could do without, and his attitude portrayed to the MMA universe isn't my favorite, but with GSP out, the Welterweight division could use him.
    There are many paths to freedom, not all are peaceful

    As Renzo Gracie would say, Riv was around when Father Time was still in his Daddy's nutsack.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

    I like the concept, but isn't there enough of that going on randomly throughout the forum threads. For me, the entertainment in watching people call each other names is the spontaneity. You'd know exactly what you're getting into if you opened a thread like that.

    And you broke the first rule of Fight Club.
