STRIKEFORCE: NICK DIAZ CONFERENCE CALL HIGHLIGHTS



























Some classic Diaz style ranting from todays press conference.
Diaz: I haven't thought too much about Paul Daley, to be honest.
Jacare: The plan is to bring the jiu-jitsu to the table at the right time.
Diaz: I don't want to fight unless I'm going to get paid a lot of money.
Diaz: If someone halfway important is fighting, I'm watching it. I'm familiar with most guys, including Cyborg.
Jacare: I've fought a lot of tough guys, and I'd put Robbie Lawler right there in the mix.
Jacare: My takedowns aren't wrestling takedowns. I call them "Jacare takedowns." I put my own twist on them.
Jacare: My fight with Lawler will look different than Lindland's because both of them are left-handed.
Diaz: I think Cyborg is the best opponent right now. I want to fight Georges St. Pierre. I think Shields is going to take him out though.
Diaz: I'd be happy to move up. I just want to get paid for it.
Diaz: I never said I wouldn't fight Miller because of weight. If I'm going to throw my whole year off, I want to get paid in full.
Diaz: Tell Miller to get his ass in shape and make 170 or 175 pounds. Or someone can "pay me a couple f***ing million dollars" to move up.
Diaz: I'm over here driving a f***ing Honda because my s***'s breaking down. F*** all you, mother f***ers.
Diaz: Josh Koscheck took an ass whooping in a fight I cornered. The UFC gave him easy fights. I didn't get easy fights in the UFC.
Diaz: We got this guy who doesn't even fight. He drinks in a bar. And we took him to fight Josh Koscheck.
Diaz: So when you tell me these guys are the best fighters in the world, it's a f***ing joke.
Diaz: People think GSP is better than me, it's bulls***. He just fought Josh Koscheck. I just told you about him.
Diaz: Right now, what do you want? You got them ranked above me.
Good luck with all that Nick.

Kimbo's done with Boxing.


 Kimbo's done with Boxing? according to Jared Shaw via mmafighting.com 
"[Slice left the boxing training camp] due to some various injuries and to go film The Scorpion King. Upon his return, he didn't show me any interest in boxing, so we just decided for right now to put it to the side," Shaw said.

"In boxing, in order to be amongst the best in the world, he was going to have to put in double the work he was accustomed to. Due to the wear and tear on his body, he wasn't able to perform up to the standard we wanted him to."
adding 
"I think Kimbo Slice's days as a fighter are close to an end."
I personally think Pro Wrestling is a better fit for Kimbo, as he'll be able to use his look and persona more then his athletic ability and fighting skills or (lack there of ). I Also think a MMA fight with Olympic gold medalist Satoshi Ishi could be potentially huge.

And might be just what the Dr. orderd for the Japanese MMA scene .

Matt Mitrione Destroys Chael Sonnen.


















Mike Tyson's mansion in Ohio is for sale, and my buddy say's "hey Meat you should take your fight of the night money and put a down payment on Tyson's place." and I said "look buddy if I wanted to do a real estate deal with a roided up, convicted felon, I'd call Chael Sonnen."
