UFC 143 Video: Nick Diaz Talks Carlos Condit, Georges St. Pierre


Former Strikeforce welterweight champ Nick Diaz faces former WEC welterweight champ Carlos Condit at Saturday's UFC 143 for the UFC interim title. Bloody Elbow's Matthew Roth was at today's press scrum after the open work outs and caught Diaz talking to the press. Part 1 is above. Parts 2 is after the jump.

"You see me. What you see is what you get," Diaz said. "You get real martial arts, you get real fighting, you get a real warrior mentality. Some people aren't mature enough to handle it. This isn't soccer. i have no problem being sportsmanlike about this whole thing. I understand it's a sporting event. But to me this is a fight. I'm not going to let things change that to help this sport become what it is. I think this sport is what it is. I don't worry about looking good. I do what I've got to do to survive, to keep my teeth in my head, and my head on my shoulders. I apologize to whoever can't put that together and understand that."
