Penn: Diaz fight not personal, just business

source: bjpenn.com
 

"They had to come back to film the Nick Diaz countdown. One thing that was a trip about that whole thing was that, I got a lot of respect for Diaz, I've trained with him, that whole thing... they forced me to say, at the end of the whole thing, they forced me to say... 'You gotta say Nick Diaz's name now, you gotta say his name.' And I was like, 'What?' They were like, 'Say you're going to beat Nick Diaz. Say you're going to beat Nick Diaz.' And I said, 'I'm going to beat Nick Diaz.' I wish ... I would have said my hand is going to be raised; at UFC 137 my hand is going to be raised. I don't know if they're going to come back and try to show Nick Diaz that, I don't know what's going on with that."

He told a trainor he wasn't fighting to step back take 20 mins and go fuck himself. Not hard to make you look like a prick there.You ever here Couture or Franklin say that about people?

Remember that editing can make a nice guy look like an asshole. It was done for his GSP primetime and he wants things to be straight up this time.That is all.
