Oh jesus, there better be a reality show if true. Would be hilarious. The dude can't handle his own finances or clean his room, now watch him run an mma organization!

I wonder how the ufc will feel about this? I imagine they'll squash it before it gets legs, or they'll cut him

0 chance of this being a real thing. A well intentioned idea? Yes. An actual promotion? No. Love the guy but he just doesn't have what is takes to successfully start and run a promotion. Phone Post 3.0

Hey Layzie, I want a t-shirt. I want to support this. I'll spread the word too. How big is he planning to make this? A local show or something more? Phone Post

I'll find out some more info for you guys soon.

The discussions that I've been a part of indicate that this may be a local show based out of Stockton.

Doesn't mean he's trying to compete with the big boys....probably just providing a venue for local talent to get some experience and, perhaps, a little shine.

I love it! Phone Post 3.0

Not a chance, but this is a guy doesn't know if he pays his taxes or not. He said he didn't go to school to buy houses. The guy is one of my favorite fighters and personalities. But if he tries to do this he is going to end up being taken advantage of big time. Not a hater just a realist. Phone Post 3.0

Nick Diaz and taxes might not work well together, but Nick Diaz and fighting go hand in hand.

You had to have known this would be the overwhelming opinon on here. I hope Nick proves us wrong!

 

I agree with whoever said it would be very easy for him to get taken advantage of by business types, I hope he's putting in his name and not his money

This isn't fighting. It is running a for profit business. And since we started right off with name calling. I would rather be a loser than a parasite. If the scrap pack scratched you off of its collective ball sack you would starve. If Nick does this you might graduate from parasite to scavenger. Phone Post 3.0

Yes. As long as you can scrap the whole "start a mma organisation" thing will pretty much sort itself out.

....

I'm not sure I quite understand that sentence. Can you clarify?
