Nate Diaz is clearing the air on exactly why he walked out of a UFC pre-fight interview.

The UFC brought out the rolled up newspaper for Nate Diaz going in to UFC on Fox 13, highlighting some of his missing of UFC commitments, his missed weight cut, and most particularly him walking out on a pre-fight interview for the in card promotion. It was a brief clip, that showed Diaz being asked "What makes Rafael dangerous, and why are you better?" To which Diaz responds "I don't know. I think that's enough man. That's good enough for today. Make something of that, guys." before taking off his mic and walking off the set.

It was footage that the UFC was more than happy to use to speculate as to whether or not Diaz was doing himself more harm than good, and torpedoing his own chances of success. Diaz took to the YouTube comments section from the video highlight to explain his actions.

Having seen a few similar interviews pre-production, I don't doubt that he was getting a lot of the same questions asked in various ways to get an interesting answer, after all, that's the job of the production staff. But, for a fighter feeling as un-enthused with the UFC's recent business moves and his place in the company, it's not hard to see why he might be feeling a little fed up.
