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.
