BJ doesn't give a fuck.  He's actually a good example for Diaz I think, BJ is no company man but at the same time he doesn't go full retard.

Hohoho someone should tweet Diaz this. That really says something when the other fighter has to point out how the company may try and start some false hatred between the two fighters. What bullshit.

I like the UFC but this is giving them a bad light Phone Post

Still curious as to what the staredown will look like.

And everyone knows that Diaz will often talk shit in the fight to try and open up his opponent. I don't see him doing that this time.

like it's for the first time. There are many promos in which they demand from fighters to say things like that. Normal

WWE also scripts their promos.

The NFL doesn't.

You know, the sport Dana says they are competing with.

Ben Roethlisberger didn't say anything about the Ravens.

But if it were the UFC he would have dropped lines at the press conference after the game.

I prefer soundbites REAL.

If a fighter is boring or likes his opponent? Fine.

If he hates him? Great.

Stop being WWE and trying to get them to cut promos like it's Stone Cold and the Rock. Phone Post

Interesting.

Both Penn and Diaz have been guys who work themselves up for fights by manufacturing some personal beef. It's cool to hear Penn being so professional.

Diaz, on the other hand, lol . . .

"UFC forced BJ"- UG news title

I actually think the promos should be MORE like WWE, try and bring out their personalities insted of generic crap. How boring is Anderson in the countdown shows, yet he does Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson impressions in his spare time.

My guess is that all they had in their previous footage was stuff about Condit and they needed to change it to him talking about Diaz. They wanted to use some of the old footage but they needed him to at least mention Nick Diaz.

They didn't want to totally reshoot and totally re-edit what they had already done so they need to alter what they already have to make it fit.

Is Paul Heyman still helping with these primetime episodes? This seems like the kind of stuff he would try. Remember how bad he made Carwin look?

They did the same shit to BJ with the second GSP fight countdown show as well. All the "To the death Georges" stuff was forced on him by the countdown crew. Phone Post

Fake promos are sad really and usually shine through to an educated viewer you can sense the inauthenticity Phone Post
