Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz Makes For A UFC Classic

by

The UFC are wasting no time announcing their biggest fight on the docket. The UFC announced the return of two of its biggest stars this week and have signed the biggest fight of 2014 on January 31 in Vegas.

Anderson Silva is planning on making a miraculous return next year as he takes on Nick Diaz in a middleweight fight. The fight was signed shortly after Nick Diaz signed a new contract with the UFC a couple of weeks ago. Both fighters are coming off of a loss, one coming off of one of the most brutal injuries in UFC history.

I have to admit that I am surprised by this one. I never expected Silva to come back after suffering that horrific injury against Chris Weidman. It wasn’t the desire I questioned but at his age I never thought he would be able to rehabilitate to an elite level that quickly. ..click here to read more ,

Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre, Or Retirement For Nick Diaz

by

The AARP must be tired of hearing from Nick Diaz. Diaz has retired and un-retired more in the last 2 years than Terry Funk has in a decade. According to the latest report Diaz is indeed retired, unless of course the UFC offers him their two biggest guns.

Diaz announcing his retirement is not a new thing. Diaz has been using this retirement chip to get what he wants going back to when he retired in Strikeforce to become a boxer only to sign with the UFC for a fight with Georges St-Pierre. Diaz is playing this hand again and like last time, will come out of “retirement” for a fight with GSP or Anderson Silva.

MMA journalist Ariel Helwani broke the news on UFC Tonight. Helwani talked directly to Diaz’s attorney Jonathon Tweedale who told Helwani that his client is retired but maybe not for the right price.

UFC 158: GSP vs. Diaz Results and Takeaways

by

Another weekend gone by and with it another UFC Pay Per View is in the books. UFC 158 rocked the PPV airwaves and likely did excellent numbers for the UFC as it was headlined by one of the most anticipated fights of the past couple of years as Welterweight kingpin Georges St. Pierre breezed through his title defense against Nick Diaz. Although it’s too early to discuss the potential number of PPV buys UFC 158 did, it is likely going to be deemed a huge success for the UFC. What we don’t have to speculate about is the live gate, as the Canadian fans proved that once again the sport of MMA is loved in Montreal. The Bell Centre reported an attendance figure over 20,145 all contributing to a $3.7 million live gate.

Although those people that initially shelled out $60 for the Pay Per View were likely frustrated and disappointed ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , ,

Nick Diaz Says He Has Never Paid Taxes

by

Nick Diaz has lost his mind! Shortly after announcing his retirement at UFC 158 Diaz showed up at the post fight press conference and made challenges to everyone from Anderson Silva to GSP. Yet it was what Diaz said about his taxes that is making news.

I have always thought that Diaz was crazy like a fox. I was wrong unless Diaz has a master plan when it comes to fighting the Internal Revenue Service. Diaz has made a lot of wild statements the last several days. But showing up to a press conference and announcing you have never paid taxes may be have been the most insane yet.

Diaz showed up late to the presser after telling the UFC that he wasn’t coming. In this case he probably should have followed his instincts. The presser was classic Diaz from challenging Anderson Silva to claiming that Georges St-Pierre (who just said complimentary ..click here to read more , ,

UFC 158 GSP vs. Diaz Results: GSP Wins, Diaz Teases Retirement

by

I don’t think anyone expected the Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz UFC 158 main-event to be a loser leaves town match but it may have just been that. After suffering a dominating defeat, Diaz announced his likely retirement in an antic-climatic end to one of the UFC’s biggest grudge fights.

If you took a step back from all of the Diaz trash talk and fight hype, you probably had a good idea of how this fight was going to go. The highly anticipated GSP vs. Nick Diaz main-event turned out to be the fight you expected and that was unfortunate. Fans were paid off with the typical GSP ground and grind with a mix of standup in a fight that hardly lived up to the hype.

I don’t know if I’d call it a dominating fight by GSP or just a bad off night for Diaz, regardless GSP won the five-round decision. ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 158: GSP vs. Diaz Predictions and Analysis

by

Grudge match! It’s time for the UFC to return to the world of Pay Per View with UFC 158 live from La Belle Province as Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre makes yet another title defense in front of his hometown crowd. This fight has been a long time in the making and has taken some serious twists and turns to get here, but this Saturday night fans will finally see Nick Diaz take on GSP for the UFC Welterweight title.

The two were originally scheduled to headline UFC 137, but after Diaz no-showed some media obligations he was pulled from the bout and instead faced BJ Penn whom he defeated. With GSP injured and off for a significant amount of time, Diaz faced Carlos Condit for the Interim Welterweight Championship Title and lost what some people are still calling a controversial decision. After the fight he failed his post-fight drug test ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Nick Diaz Says GSP Is On Plenty Of Steroids

by

Nick Diaz has said a lot of things about Georges St-Pierre but his newest attack may be the one that gets under GSP’s skin most. Diaz is now accusing GSP of being on steroids and is openly questioning whether the champ is being tested or not.

Diaz broached the subject first on Thursday at the UFC 158 press conference when he was asked about drug testing. Diaz never came outright and said it but he said enough to let you know what he was thinking. I am hardly a body language expert but the look on the champion’s face when Diaz mentioned steroids was enough to tell me that this is a hot button issue with him. Well if he was made then, he is going to be enraged when he hears Diaz’s latest rant.

Sparks Fly At UFC 158: GSP Vs. Diaz Press Conference

by

The Nick Diaz show continued today in Canada. Nick did show up for the UFC 158 press conference and he delivered as advertised. Nick complained about his poster picture, being portrayed as a villain, his childhood, and a whole lot more in one of the most entertaining pressers in UFC history.

I know the guy is supposed to be a good soldier, show up for press conferences, and be a company man but there is a reason that the MMA world is fascinated with Nick Diaz. Nick Diaz is the real deal. Nick showing up at open workouts and giving the same boring answers that 99% of the other UFC fighters do is not a draw. Fans waiting to see what Nick Diaz does next is what draws the money.

Nick was awesome at today’s presser. Nick compared his childhood to Georges and criticized Georges for comparing Nick to a bully. Nick ..click here to read more , , , , ,

Nick Diaz may be the craziest fighter in MMA and that says a lot. Whether it is going toe to toe in a striking battle or fighting inside of a hospital room, there is never a dull moment in Diaz’s world. Here is a look back at his top five memorable fights in the cage.

Diaz is a very polarizing fighter. You either love him or hate him. I have always loved Diaz. He is fun, exciting, and probably is more honest than almost any other fighter in combat sports. Unfortunately that fire and honesty is what has both made and broke Nick Diaz yet also given fans some of the most exciting moments in MMA.

Diaz is just days away from the biggest fight of his career. Diaz will challenge UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in one of the most anticipated grudge matches in UFC history. Win, lose, or draw, Diaz ..click here to read more , , , , ,

Intense UFC 158 Media Call With GSP And Nick Diaz

by

If you weren’t already excited to see Nick Diaz and Georges St-Pierre fight each other at UFC 158, just wait until you hear their crazy conference call. It’s not often when you hear GSP lose his cool but even he had a hard time keeping himself composed listening to the ramblings of Nick Diaz.

Now this is how you promote a fight! I don’t know if Nick Diaz is just crazy or crazy like a fox but either way he probably just made himself a lot more money on Thursday. Diaz and GSP joined forces for a conference call that featured Diaz losing it after 20 minutes and being the first fighter to get into the head of the UFC welterweight champion.

“I’m disrespectful only because I would like the acknowledgement that I deserve,” said Diaz. “I’m not over here trying to make friends.”

UFC 2012-13 Winter Events Preview

by

Happy Holidays, CamelClutchBlog faithful.  I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed whatever holiday they may or may not have celebrated this year.  I don’t think there is a politically incorrect way (and if there is, please tell me) for me to address the arrival of 2013 so I’d like to start by wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

Speaking of healthy, I think we’d all like to wish a healthier 2013 for so many fighters who’ve been injured.  Yes, there is the purely selfish part of all of us who wants them healthier so they can entertain through this sport we love so much, but they obviously suffer from the lack of a paycheck.  Is GSP’s “Camp For Only One Fighter Like In Boxing” approach the answer, as Dana White recently mentioned? I have no idea.  If I knew how to stop fighter injuries, I feel like that information would be very valuable to promoters, gyms ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC president Dana White confirmed plans this week to pit Nick Diaz against GSP for the welterweight title at UFC 158 in March. The bout has been verbally agreed upon by all parties yet nothing is signed as of this writing.

According to Ariel Helwani at MMAFighting.com Diaz’s manager Cesar Gracie hopes to have the contract signed this week. The fight comes after GSP turned down repeated offers to fight Anderson Silva after going to the UFC and asking for the fight with Diaz.
