If you ever want Nick Diaz to be more socially open to you, my suggestion would be to embrace a gluten-free, low-carb diet. If you passed Diaz’s strict dietary regime, then you will need to sporadically work out with him at 2:15 am in the morning. The two activities will facilitate a stronger relationship with Nick Diaz. That’s the best advice I can give to MMA journalists that have been struggling for years to get an interview with the former Strikeforce middleweight champion. However, if you seek to build a bond with Nick or even Cesar Gracie, try not to call him out on Twitter.
It’s futile. Nick Diaz doesn’t even read Twitter. He’s responded to only one person on Twitter — and it was me. However, Cesar Gracie does have a slight fetish with social media and he used GracieFighter.com to issue a response to BJ Penn after his short online tirade yesterday.
“BJ Penn has apparently not come to terms with the beating he received at the hands of Nick Diaz.”
“At some point it is up to those around you to protect you from yourself. To take you aside and let you know you are wrong and help save you from your folly. Unfortunately for Penn he is surrounded by “Yes Men” that are unwilling to do that. The outcome will be predictable, resulting in a fighter that will never push himself to the fullest and will always have excuses for his losses.”
I wrote this entire article sitting in my underwear in a casino in Las Vegas. Apparently I have not come to terms with putting on clothes. [Source]
