Strikeforce had a conference call for Diaz vs Noons II yesterday and although it went down, it did so without Nick Diaz. Only KJ Noons was available for questions from the media. Why, you might ask? Well, Nick Diaz is just too hardcore for conference calls.\u00a0He sends\u00a0in his manager and trainer, Cesar Gracie, to do it for him and KJ Noons wasn't particularly thrilled. Cesar Gracie: "Nick doesn't really do the conference call with the guy he's fighting thing," he said. "He just never has. It's just not in his psyche. He's too busy training to be on the phone and everything like that right now.", said Gracie. \u201cHe just doesn\u2019t operate in that mindset of, \u2018This is a sport, and we\u2019re going to talk about it.\u2019 It gets to the point where you\u2019re making up some kind of rivalry, and it\u2019s a fake thing. With Nick, it\u2019s not a fake thing. He\u2019s been busy fighting, and he has bad blood for everybody who steps in cage with him. That\u2019s how the Diaz brothers are. Their mindset is that they\u2019re going into battle, and you wouldn\u2019t fight a friend. That\u2019s what makes Nick exciting." KJ Noons: \u201cThat\u2019s pretty unprofessional. Like I said I can't stand the guy, but I like to watch the guy fight. I like to watch his brother fight. From different people, I've heard he's a really nice guy. I believe I'm a nice guy . . . but when he pulls like this, doesn't show up on a conference call, it's hard to like a guy like that. Or he punks off. Or he gets your family involved and like that." Noons sounds like he is still pretty heated at Diaz for calling his father a drunk and saying he should watch his son's fights from home. According to Gracie, Diaz's beef with Noons isn't personal. He's just 'keeping it real'. Whether or not\u00a0these two squash\u00a0their beef in San Jose on\u00a0Oct 9th, depends on Diaz. According to Noons, "the ball is in his court". I don't know if the beef will subside, but I can assure you we will see the phrase 'don't be scared homie' for at least three or four weeks after the hood-style war goes down in the 408.
