Nick Diaz has been on PR duty recently, trying to clear up everything that happened at the last EliteXC show. And if you thought “Nick Diaz” and “PR” were a bad combination, you’re right. While trying to prove that he’s not a total crazy weirdo, he has … proven that he’s a total crazy weirdo. Here’s the best interview out there, it’s a novel but it’s worthwhile to read the whole thing. A few excerpts for you:
“If I have a girlfriend, I don’t bring her to flaunt her. She doesn’t get to reap the benefits of me being famous.
I don’t make that much money, so I don’t get to buy nice things. I can’t afford new fucking shoes. I can’t retire now if I wanted to. I gotta keep fighting. It’s my job. I take it very seriously. I’m very professional.
“Not that it’s un-professional to bring your family. That’s fine, whatever. It’s not like I’m trying to get into a street fight. I’m not trying to do that either. Actually, I kind of avoid one at all costs. That’s why this fucker should have kept his fucking head down.
“He (Noons) brought his girlfriend, and he brought his dad and his mother, who walks around, and what is he doing putting dirty looks on me? Of course, I’m going to tell him fuck you, and he’s going to have to get punked in front of his fucking dad.
“And I’m not calling him a fucker and trying to make him look like a punk in front of his girl and shit and all that. I’m not like that. I’m not going to go – I’m sure he is not conscious of all this shit that’s going on right now. I’m sure that he thinks I’m a real big punk and that I’m trying to start shit with him in front of his girl, in front of his dad, talking shit to him. But that’s not even the case. I mean, what do you expect? You are a stupid fucker, jeapordizing your whole family bringing them – this is fucking warfare. That’s the way I see it. This ain’t no joke, dude. We’re going in there to fight. You’re trying to hurt me. Are you fucking kidding me?
Goddamn do we ever love Nick Diaz in all his crazy glory.
