Manager not expecting Diaz to trash talk Silva

Monday, August 25, 2014

Nick Diaz is known for his outspoken personality and generally isn't shy to trash talk opponents ahead of bouts. However Anderson Silva's manager, Ed Soares, believes that Diaz won't trash talk Silva and instead take a different approach:

“I think he's prepared to deal with that, but I honestly believe that Nick Diaz is going to take a different approach. I don't think Nick Diaz has anything personal against Anderson Silva. I think Nick Diaz looks at Anderson Silva as a true, real martial art challenge and he believes he's got what it takes to be able to fight him. Most of the time Nick Diaz doesn't start off with the trash talking. It's normally somebody else that starts off with the trash talking and he kinda finishes it off. But Nick Diaz overall, I don't see him much as a guy that starts off talking trash.”
