Better later than never? Nick Diaz joins conference call
Oct 19, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
Update: Nick Diaz joined the UFC 137 conference call about 45 minutes late.
“I didn’t even know about a call. No one called me in the last week,” said Diaz. “I didn’t know about this call until 15 minutes ago.” Diaz said he woke up, phone dead, brother was telling him he was supposed to be on a call. Diaz said he’s just going to do what he always does: train. When it’s time to fight, it’s time to fight.
Diaz is trying to ignore card drama “My job is to fight. That’s what I do, it’s what I do well.” Putting in 100% training is what’s important.
Nick believes Penn is a much better fighter than GSP from a technical standpoint. Although, he thinks he looks better at 155.
Nick on losing his title shot: “Of course I have regrets”
Diaz: “I think BJ is a much better fighter than GSP all-around.”
Nick regarding the Strikeforce belt: I never put on that belt, he can have it.
Diaz said, “Nobody can beat me.”
