UFC 143 Video: Nick Diaz Not Happy With UFC Editing

UFC 143 main eventer Nick Diaz was nice enough to give MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani a few minutes of his time, and the results were gold. Diaz has always been known as a unique interview, and he definitely lives up to it here. He starts off in a pretty good mood, discussing how watching the Primetime special helps to get him motivated, and he shares a couple of stories from back in the day about a teacher from the special.

His tone begins to change ever-so-slightly when he is asked about Georges St. Pierre though. He doesn't believe GSP is being genuine with his talk about rooting for Diaz because he wants to fight him:

"A lot of people are putting a lot of pressure on him to say these sorts of things, it's not really him."

After discussing the differences between Georges St. Pierre and Carlos Condit and referring to GSP repeatedly as a "strong guy", Diaz looked ready to head out. But Ariel had one more question, which took the interview from average Diaz interview to great Diaz interview in a matter of seconds. Helwani asked him if he's ever online, because he saw a video clip put out by the UFC and the first comment on the video was from "NickDiaz209" saying that was not what he said. Was that Nick? Yes it was. After thanking Ariel for bringing it up, Nick goes on a beautiful two minute rant about how the UFC edited the video, and even asked his brother Nate about they did it to him as well.

It's definitely worth a watch just for the rant. Check it out.
