he hates the process, he hates interviews, He hates "jumpin around with those guys" in training, he looks disguisted all the time....he spoke about his time off and how he needed it....he also likes to WIN alot and when he doesnt, it isnt as fun anymore

I dont think any fighter hates mma moreso overall than Diaz

Nowadays, a lot of times, I feel about the same. Phone Post

He's said a bunch of times over the years that he doesn't like being a fighter, and if he got paid to do the things he loves (triathlons, some other shit), then he'd never bother with MMA.

Nick measures time off in terms of years. Fighting is the only job he's ever going to like.

My best assessment is that things have grown stale for Nick. There's a lack of stimulation that comes with something "fresh" or "new" that he hasn't been able to experience for awhile. Same training partners, same gym, same drive to the gym, same, same, same.

Then when you lose a fight, after alledgedly coming off a bad camp, get suspensed for a year, lose a fight after again coming off a bad camp, it's all just mounting until it boils over as frustration, ex. Nick rage retirement(s).

I agree that a lot of the aspects of MMA such as press-related things aren't his favorite things, but their irritation levels drastically increase when you're already frustrated and stale. Someone needs to help him get some fresh air.

Whenever he packs it in, I think Nick will be a phenomenal teacher.

I was thinking of doing the Donner Lake Triathlon, checked on youtube for a video and there's Nick and Nate, albeit a very short clip, laughing and having fun. That was pretty cool to see.

Yup Nick has said many times he loves those sports and respects those athletes more than elite MMArtists. I believe he is a pro and is even has sponsors according to his website.
