The All Elbows Noons / Diaz 2 promo


Originally I kinda thought it was good news for Strikeforce when Nick Diaz no-showed their conference call a few days ago – it was promotion of a different sort. They got a bunch more headlines than they ever would have if Nick had shown up plus some really blistering stuff from Noons calling Diaz an unprofessional loser. But after hearing some of the gold offered up in this Showtime promo of the rematch, I take it all back. New rule: Nick Diaz needs to be mic’d ALL THE TIME.

“I really don’t wanna lose to this guy because he’s not important”

“I didn’t talk to the doctor, I didn’t talk to him and he didn’t talk to me. He barely looked at me and turned around and *whistle* “Fight’s over” and I’m going what the fuuuuuuck???”

“You won’t ever see me do the ‘eeeeeh, I won man, I won’ you know. I would just say hey look we gotta do it again obviously. I’m not a poor sport, but I’m just saying he didn’t win that.”

It’s embarrassing for me to sit there and take punches from a guy who isn’t important”

If the quality of the promo looks head and shoulders above what Showtime normally puts into it’s Strikeforce stuff, that’s because it is – this series is being put together by Esther and Casey from AllElbows. MMA Payout wraps up why that’s so awesome:

AllElbows  has been around the MMA industry for quite some time, making a splash years ago for ProElite (EliteXC) and has worked with various MMA promotions such as UFC, EliteXC, Shark Fights, and Strikeforce to name a few.  Lendon and Lin’s work is highly regarded within the industry and Strikeforce’s decision to get them closer integrated to the promotional side of the business is a great move to aid an area that was lacking and criticized in the past by the fans and media.

Huzzah for doing things right! Huzzah! Huzzah!

  • Omomatta says:

    Diaz is gonna whoop some Noons ass.

    Great job with the promo Esther and Casey!

    Quality promo.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    Diaz is so full of shit. his face was fucked and got his ass beat for being lazy and stupid

  • fightlinker says:

    Yeah my one thing was that it did play into the idea that Noons wasn’t thoroughly beating the shit out of him through that first round. They show some highlights of the shellacking but after so much time spent on the cut being bullshit and diaz’s quotes…

  • Simco says:

    Three years ago was the best time to be a Diaz fan.

    “I think someone needs to come out and say it. Smoking pot is good for mixed martial artists. It’s a new day and age, it’s the year….what the fuck year is it……. I don’t even know, that’s because I’m smoking pot like I should be doing and not paying attention to bullshit which I don’t do.”

    “They shove drugs down your children’s throats. I don’t know if you knew this, but they shove it down their throats. Methamphetamines, right down their little throats. That’s right.”

    “If you’re going to be hovering, if you’re going to be hovering my dick, I’m going to need 30 seconds or a minute, to uh, if I’m going to take a piss.”

    “If I can be the guy to go and tell the whole world that smoking pot is good for you then good fucking gravy! If I need to…uh….where was I at?…Where was I at? What was I saying…..Hello?”

    “I’m going to do whatever it takes to get by. I’m going to rock it and I’m going to roll it. I don’t really give a shit. I’ll fight anybody because I don’t give a fuck. I don’t give a shit. I live at home with my parents. There are no women around here at all. No girls…fucking…no girls. I see maybe one on the weekend if I don’t have a fight. It’s fucking ridiculous.”

    lol i remember that. It was a good day to be a blogger

  • 32hunter says:

    I watched the first fight again last night and I really think Nick should take his time and not rush the takedowns he was holding his own with KJ. What really fucked him up in that fight was the two heavy knees when Nick shot in. If Nick just out cardio and out boxes him the takedown will come.

  • Márcio says:

    KJ: “I’m better looking than him”

    Congrats you fucking homo. Enjoy it while you can, after october 9th you wont be.
