In a new interview with Jesse Holland of UFCMania.com, Nick Diaz holds nothing back, as usual. When asked a question in regard to his fight from Sept. 15 against Mike Aina, Diaz even calls the commentators on the telecast into question, most notably Bill Goldberg:
Jesse Holland (UFCmania): Well the EliteXC commentators weren’t exactly helping your cause.
Nick Diaz: Man, fuck them. They were acting like they’re all buddies with me and the next day they stick it to me. They should be able to know and recognize what’s going on in there. You got (Bill) Goldberg in there and they’re acting like he’s this experienced fighter but who is he? Why isn’t there a fighter in the booth helping these guys? If you never fought an MMA match in your life how are you going to be able to know what you’re looking at? Not everything that goes on in the cage should be taken at face value but if you’re not a fighter you don’t recognize that stuff. That was ridiculous man these guys need to shut up and call it right.
And even though he just recently signed a long-term extension with EliteXC, Diaz still wants to get his hands on some UFC welterweights and is willing to call them “pussies” on the record if that’s what it takes to get a match:
Nick Diaz: Georges or Matt Hughes, who the hell is there? Fitch? My boy Jake choked him out already. I’m ready to start talking shit on these guys. What do I have to do to fight one of these guys or get the promoters to make it happen? Call these guys pussies? Fine. They’re all pussies. Fuck every single one of them.
Jesse Holland (UFCmania): You don’t think Fitch is the real deal?
Nick Diaz: No, I don’t. I think I’m gonna slap him and after I slap him I’m gonna beat him. Give me a fight with Fitch, go ahead. The UFC doesn’t want me fighting them but I’ll be there even when they start falling off because I’m a long distance fighter not like these fragile guys who always get hurt in training. How the hell do you get hurt so much in training? Stop flipping tires and jacking up all these weights.
