No he doesn't, which is why he isn't opening one up Phone Post

lol @ the haaaaaaaaaaaaters!

Man, you are sad!

 


You had to have known this would be the overwhelming opinon on here. I hope Nick proves us wrong!

 

I agree with whoever said it would be very easy for him to get taken advantage of by business types, I hope he's putting in his name and not his money


Yeah, I don't really understand how that made him a "hater".  Fuck Layzie, aren't you a grown ass man, you shouldn't be using words like "hater" anymore, that shit is for kids.  The guy said he loves Diaz, but just doesn't think he has what it takes to run a succesful promotion.  That's not "hating" that's having an informed opinion.  Nick has shown the general public very little to say that he would be able to succesfully run a promotion.  He's even stated he doesn't pay his taxes, try pulling that when you own your own business, not gonna work.

 

I wish Nick all the best, if he does start up a good up and coming promotion, I will be very surprised, but also extremely happy for him.  The more interesting figures that are sitting atop of promotions in MMA the better.  Guys like Dana and Nick make for interesting TV, instead of guys that kill puppies like Bjorn.

What does that have to do with anything, Caposa? As long as Asimple fan isn't starting a promotion.

I love Diaz as a fighter but he has shown nothing but disdain for the business side of fighting. Not the best candidate to start a promotion.
 

 

Well he said that Diaz "doesn't have what it takes to successfully start and run a promotion." To me that implies that AsimpleFan must know what it takes, right? So I was asking.

 

He already explained himself. He doesn't need you to come defend him.

If Nick wants to start a promotion to help local fighters, I say more power to him. No need for negativity.

Wasn't being negative just saying this idea isn't based in reality. It takes a certain amount of specialized knowledge to run any for profit business. That isn't even taking into consideration all the sanctions involved in running an MMA promotion. I don't know all the details. But I know Nick doesn't either. If he does this he will be taken advantage of and bled dry. Unless he finds a truly honest person to run things and he just bank rolls and lends his star status. Honest people in business are a rare commodity. Phone Post 3.0

You guys don't know any of the info, or who's helping Nick with this project, yet you guys want to shut him down before hand? Just stay tuned and hope for the best. No need for negativity.

I'm not being negative.  And you were the one who came in saying it was Nick Diaz Promotion.  So that makes us think it's Nick and mainly Nick.  If you would have said "Nick and various smart investors" Than I would have said "Gee Layzie, that sounds like a pretty damn good idea for Nick".  So you can't really fault us for having doubts at first, without you really giving us said knowledge.

Doesn't mean he's trying to compete with the big boys....probably just providing a venue for local talent to get some experience and, perhaps, a little shine.

I love it! Phone Post 3.0

That's what it's looking like at this point. 


Ya know... I kinda giggled right when I saw this but it does make sense.  I lived in Vegas for 6 years and attended a bunch of smaller promotions, and they were fun as hell and great for the area.  In fact, people like Ronda Rousey and Ryan Couture were fighting on these cards years ago.  It's not like Nick's saying that he's trying to compete with the UFC.  He's got a big enough name (especially locally) to get sponsors and easily run a successful smaller promotion.  Good for him on staying busy and working on other stuff other than fighting.


Good post. voted up.

According to the OP Nick is starting a promotion. If a bunch of investors are starting a promotion and Nick is going to be the big name involved then OP is misleading. Phone Post 3.0

Judges will score the fighters on effective striking, grappling, aggression, cage control and not being a bitch.
