That picture of Nick Diaz holding a bottle of ‘Sip Moscato’ reminds me of the time in which we tried to instigate the beef between Nick Diaz and Mayhem Miller — with the use of a clever bottle of alcohol.
Back in August 2010, I contacted a company called 209 Gin to do cross-promotion. The company sent us a box of gin for Nick Diaz to sign and we were going to hand out a bottle to one lucky winner on MiddleEasy.com. We contacted Cesar Gracie who then requested that we pay the gym $500 and he would get everyone to sign it. Later that day, we tried to contact Cesar again, but he requested the same amount to get the bottle signed. We sat on the idea for a while, then contacted Ryan Parsons, Mayhem Miller’s agent to see if Mayhem could save our contest idea. We were going to have Mayhem Miller sign the bottles with a message like ‘Too scared to sign a bottle for your fans?’ addressed to Nick Diaz, and then hand it out on MiddleEasy.com. This was just before Mayhem set-up the DontBeScaredHomie.com, a site that he used to call out Nick Diaz for a catchweight bout. Ryan Parson informed me they were going to go with the contest idea when the blog was set-up. Website was set-up, months went by, nothing happened. I contacted Ryan to see he was still game, told me he was, weeks went by, nothing. Then the entire LayzieTheSavage vs. Mayhem Miller incident went down, I contacted Ryan to see if Mayhem would send the bottles back. Ryan informed me that he would try to get a hold of Mayhem, since that day I haven’t heard back from them.
I talked to the owner of 209 Gin and she seemed to be cool with the entire incident, but somewhere in Los Angeles Mayhem Miller still owes me a bottle of 209 gin — something that I will most likely never see in my lifetime.
Ah well, check out this new Prebeck video.
