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:

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.
