Very tense and awkward at times. Dana and Ceasar Gracie have an interesting back and forth, and Diaz really opens up a lot about the things he doesn't like. Comes accross as rambling and gibberish, but there are pints to be found if you can filter through the garbage.

Diaz's stock is on the rise due to his in-ring performance and recent interviews that round him out a bit, but his fundamental problem is still very much there and was highlighted in ridiculous fashion in this presser.

He whines about not being paid enough to move out of his dirtball neighborhood and buy a nice house, trying to blame UFC for that and by implication also whatever mysterious powers "forced" him to choose this line of work. Then Dana cold busts him on that idea, pointing out how much cash he has. So Diaz flails and flips and says that instead it's actually because nobody ever taught him how to buy a house (somebody else's fault, also pathetically ridiculous) and that if he had time to take off from training for a bit, maybe he could buy a house (people are forcing me to take fights every three months for life and never let me out of training to go buy a house - again, ridiculous - try putting down the bong for an afternoon and going out to look at some houses).

Everything with Nick Diaz is somebody else's fault, everybody else's fault. He says things like "I do what I'm told" to make it sound like he's under somebody's thumb and has no choice in things (except of course that he doesn't do what he's told). Yet he also says that other people are supposed to be running his life and telling him what to do but aren't doing it (press appearances, contracts, etc.) So wait... you're being controlled and don't want to be controlled, but you pay people to control you and they don't do it? Which is it, dip****?

He is an immature child in an adult body who wants everybody to feel sorry for him so he can live life like somebody raised by wolves, satisfying whatever selfish impulse strikes him at any moment, never being accountable for anything, including himself. He has never taken responsibility for his own life at the most basic level. He has latched onto the sensei-student relationship and warped it in a way that keeps him always as the person who only takes direction from above and isn't empowered to make decisions, make arrangements, or be responsible. And like any spoiled child who has never actually had to make things happen or organize anything or lead, he sits back and whines and complains. What a ****ing baby and a head case.

Well said. The more I get to see and learn of Nick Diaz, the less I like.
