Remember that time Nick Diaz and his crew instigated a scuffle with KJNoonâ€™s and his father at that EliteXC show? Seemed like a pretty jerk move, right? Well that wasnâ€™t Nickâ€™s fault, just so you know. In fact, the whole mess was actually KJ Noonsâ€™ fault for being such a poser. Seriously:
“And he (Diaz) points the finger squarely at Noons, who in one of his more charitable and less x-rated diatribes he referred to as â€œa poser.â€ But it started when he was asked to return to the ring to do an interview. â€œIâ€™m not a punk and I donâ€™t start (expletive),â€ Diaz said. â€œThey brought me to the cage to do an interview about the rematch. I was doing my job. I didnâ€™t go in there like some crazy psycho (expletive). It wasnâ€™t staged. But it was all because of this (expletive) poser.â€
Diaz said he was upset when, after being asked if he wanted the rematch by interviewer Bill Goldberg, Noons asked the crowd what it thought. Noons was born in Hawaii and was the crowd favorite. Not surprisingly, the crowd vehemently said no. Diaz asked Noons why he was afraid and he made an obscene gesture. Then, the pushing and shoving ensued.â€
Fair enough, Iâ€™ll trust that Diaz may not have requested to get into the cage and that EliteXC was actually foolish enough to invite him in. But something about Nick Diaz still screams â€œIâ€™m a paranoid lunaticâ€ like this little gem about mugs, for example:
“But Diaz said it didnâ€™t end then. He said Monday he ran into Noons and his family after returning from a long run Sunday and that another confrontation ensued. Again, he said, it was precipitated by Noons.
â€œMy car pulled up in front of the hotel and he and his girlfriend and his mom and dad were there,â€ Diaz said. â€œRight away, he put his mug on me. He was staring me down and trying to give the impression that heâ€™s hard core. I flipped him off, but heâ€™s standing over there like heâ€™s flashing. I go, â€˜What the (expletive) are you doing? Iâ€™m not the one doing (expletive).â€™ I couldnâ€™t understand why this guy is putting his mug on me, but he had to act like he was some kind of a (expletive) tough guy in front of his girlfriend and his Dadâ€¦”
â€œIâ€™m not the one bringing my family into the ring and showing them off. Iâ€™m not the one who (showed up to the pre-fight news conference) in a (expletive) suit trying to act like Iâ€™m some kind of tough guy (expletive) rich kid. This is war to me and we have a serious situation on our hands now.â€
Well there you have it.Â K.J. Noons instigated Diaz from the start by being such a poser and â€œputting his mugâ€ on him. What a bastard. I do believe the icing on the cake is â€œwe have a serious situation on our hands now.â€ Gees, if putting your mug on Nick Diaz while acting like a poser creates a serious situation, I can only imagine how serious things get once you beat him up in front of thousands of people (a feat Iâ€™m assuming KJ can perform again.)
My Two cents: I think Nick Diaz needs his own PR firm working for him 24/7. They should never let him speak or do anything but train and fight. Even if Nickâ€™s antics create juicy hype to fuel EliteXC shows, he still comes off as the loudest, whiny voice in MMA that no one wants to hear. Hey Nick, suck it up, make weight, say as few words as possible, and try to win a fight here and there. Whew, I feel better.
