Many fans were a little pleasantly surpised that Nick Diaz made to the UFC 158 press conference And it was a big surprise that Nick Diaz was so pleasnt and engaging throughout.

Fans have come to expeect Diaz to engage in pleasantries more like this:

It is a old story.



This time however, Diaz was entirely professional.

“It’s not so bad once you’re here, but I’d rather not do it," Diaz admitted. "I’ll survive, but it’s a little close to the fight to take off from home for me. It’s fine to be here.  didn’t make it to the last press conference. It wasn’t very professional on my part. I just was ready to fight, I was ready to go to the fight and fight.

“I thought that was the important part, but I had to learn my lesson. There’s a lesson learned from this and I’m ready to fight.”

But Diaz was not just professional, he was... nice.

“At first, I had a lot of hard feelings because I’m like, ‘Hey, how come you’re not going to recognize me as the guy out here,’” said Diaz of St-Pierre. “I’m over here dropping names, running my mouth and I get no attention. It was frustrating. So, you just gotta work it right until you win the right fights and the people decide you’re the right guy. That was pretty much my issue before.

“I like [FSP] just fine. I maybe could have gotten this fight a little sooner, but I like him just fine.”

There is every expectation however that when Diaz steps into the Octagon with St-Pierre on March 16, the fans will be treated to the focus and ferocity that has so far defined him.

he's said he thinks GSP is a great role model and respects him before. I don't think it's a lie, I think he just like CHael wanted to get the champs attention any way he had to

Yeah, Diaz was super relaxed and professional today.

Which makes sense when you consider that medical marijuana is legal in Canada.

i dont think nick has any real disdain for gsp other than his smothering/boring (compared to nick's...) style. i think he explained pretty clearly today that he had to go and talk all the shit to get noticed and it worked out for him. now people will pay to see him get beat up or pay to see him beat gsp. he just did it in a much more believable way than inventing a fake character like chael had to. pretty fuckin smart for a guy everybody says is so dumb.

He probably could have gotten the fight sooner but that is no fault of GSP's. You can blame lots of people including Nick, Dana, the Commission, the judges (if you think he beat Carlos). But can't really blame GSP. In fact the only reason he is getting the fight now is because GSP.

I think Nick is enjoying Montreal weed.  We have surprisingly good weed here.
