Interesting stuff. The UFC rep tells Nick he comes of as contradictory.

Hahahaha

That PR man's "I'm on your side" techniques couldn't permeate Nick's insanity. I wish someone would call Nick out on using civil rights slang too

At the end of that video, Nick says something about "the little boy who cried wolf" Is he alluding to wolf tickets?

It's not surprising that Nick is pissed, they're going out of their way to make him look bad.

Even that open workout thing, he explained as plainly as possible that Zuffa brought him in at 12 and if attended the workout he'd get 2 hours sleep and if he skipped it, he'd get 4; yet somehow some people blame Nick when it was Zuffa who brought him in late.

Zuffa marketing department is full of weasels...but then most marketing departments/PR are as that's pretty much one of their job requirements. Best thing Nick can do is keep calling them out like he did at the press conference. He even got GSP to admit that nothing he said was true and that it will help sell tickets. Nick isn't acting to sell tickets, GSP on the other hand is, hence the wolf tickets comment.

I'd like to see the preceding 30-60 seconds, the vid started with Nick pissed! But this interviewer was a great diplomat and escorted Nick right out of his hostility to the point that he was apologizing to Nick for having to leave now and Nick seeming kind of bummed about it

You might want to check those accusations. It was Ceasar Gracie who rejected the idea of flying Nick in earlier. Dana has already called him out on it. Nick and his management is a tragic mess.

Lol. Nick does a perfectly good job of making himself look bad without any help. Phone Post

Bad signs:

When you talk while holding a cell phone in your hand the whole time.

When you have trouble articulating your point to Nick Diaz.

When you go to make a point and say "It's just that the story is so raveled now... It's great, it's great. It's black and white. And it's good! And, hey, this fight is fucking promoted."


What a douche the UFC rep is. I've only watched 1:30 of the video, I'm sure it gets worse.

This.

Diaz and his camp are responsible for their own bad decisions.

You're right if you're point is it is unfair to make a snap judgement of a guy based off 1:30 of video. Especially one is who trying to talk in PR speak.

However this is an internet message board. Also, I can't stand people who wave around their hands as they talk, who also are holding a phone the entire time that they're checking. That one little thing is what bothered me because I believe it is poor etiquette.

And yes I realize criticizing one man's etiquette while defending Nick Diaz could be viewed as hypocritical.

You're merging multiple stories together. Cesar complained about Nick flying Coach instead of Business class (as a good manager should) he didn't cancel any flight. Dana joked how he'd be lucky if they bring them in with the Greyhound after Nick skipped one of the Countdown filmings.

Unless you have a different story in which case post the link.

Dana specifically refuted the whole "UFC got me here late story".

Basically he said that Ceasar nixed the idea of an earlier flight as "there would be no chance of Nick making an earlier flight".

It was in a video interview, ill have a look.

Yeah. Classic stereotype of a douche PR guy. You're talking to Nick Diaz, put your damn phone away.
