Hey guy, maybe you shouldn't do the Tito Ortiz grave dig and the Nick Diaz hand thing before you fight

Hey guy, maybe you shouldn't do the Tito Ortiz grave dig and the Nick Diaz hand thing before you fight

We're not sure how many times we've reiterated this on MiddleEasy, but a friendly note to all fighters out there: You are not Nick Diaz. As of UFC 162, not even Anderson Silva is Nick Diaz. There's only one fighter on this planet that is allowed to drop (or raise) their hands and taunt their opponent, and he hails from the 209. Stop imitating this man's style. There is nothing original about you stealing someone's creativity in order to utilize it improperly. Granted, it's pretty hilarious when someone tries to pull a 'Nick Diaz' only to be humbled with a swift strike to the skull.

That's what happened at Underground Battle 2 on July 28th 2013 when this fighter chose to funnel all of his energy into his pre-fight celebration instead of doing the most basic of things and defending himself. Ah well, thanks for the lulz. Props to @mixieboi for the find.

Good find. What a shithead. Seeing the growing amount of douchebag fans and fighters this sport is attracting makes me want to abandon ship.

Totally agree!

I know. But what's the alternative?

Life. Outside. Females. Sports. Weed. Food. Music. Nature.

That has to be the most humiliating thing to ever happen in combat sports.

Karma is a bitch.

He deserved it the second he did that stupid Tito grave thing.

What do you expect from someone who fights with their shirt on.

That couldn't have ended any better. I'm sure he's got a Never Back Down DVD sitting somewhere in his house.

wtf is this training you speak of?

I enjoyed the grave digger from Ttio and Grove in post fight celebration, for the intro it just doesn't work. I have no idea what this guy's experience is, but I would think one would have to fight a few times to realize they're tough and iron chinned enough to use the Diaz approach. If you can't eat some bombs then don't taunt and leave yourself unprotected.

Guy who imitates Tito and is hyped as shit
Guy who is calm and bows before the fight

That was beautifully executed.

Like something out of a NOS commercial.

That was a fail of BIBLICAL proportions!

Psalms 7 verses 15 and 16 say:

He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

keep that bible shit the fuck out of this
-2 # SnakeJake 2013-07-31 00:11
Would you tell Mark Hunt the same thing? Or Jon Jones? Or Ben Henderson?

There are a lot of fighters who are really into that bible shit.

starts off with Sports and next thing your beheading a tourist on the internet or slaughtering Palestinian women and children. Religion should be kept in your heart not regurgitated just to show your "knowledge" of it. The world would be a better place if we used our religions to make ourselves better human beings, instead of just pointing fingers at others

People just couldn't resist but to start yet another argument over religion.

That was amazing, I love seeing cocky douchebags with no class get knocked out.

As far as the stupid Tito taunt goes, play American Football and do that shit after you touchdown. Keep it the fuck out of MMA before you even fight *smh*

The guy filming is psychic. To translate what he said at 0:57: "That guy dug (the grave) for himself."
