Nick Diaz’s UFC 143 Post-Fight Interview: ‘I’m Outta This Sh**!’

Here’s video of Nick Diaz’s UFC 143 post-fight interview with Joe Rogan where he sorta retires and complains about Carlos Condit running from him the whole fight.

Transcription via BE:

“I’m not going to accept the fact that this was a loss. I’ve lost fights before, where, uh, ya know, like, I’m not going to accept that either. That ain’t right. I pushed him back the whole fight. I walked him down. I got the take down. I’m the guy who went out on top. Had I thought I wasn’t ahead, I’d have chinned in and finished that arm lock. Hey Carlos is a great guy, I’m happy for him and his family. I think I’m done with this MMA. It’s been great out here. I’ve had a good career. You guys pay me way too much. But I don’t think I’m going to get enough to keep going in this. It’s been a good time. You know Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Good job Carlos, you’re the man, bro.”

When asked if he was really going to retire by Joe Rogan he said, “You know I don’t need this s**t. You know what I mean? I pushed this guy backwards the whole fight. He ran from me the whole fight. I landed the harder shots. He ran the whole time. He kicked me in my leg a little bit. That was the way they understand to win in here, I don’t want to play this game no more. I’ll help out my team and my brother but I’m outta this s**t.”

The biggest takeaway here since I seriously doubt he’ll actually retire: Now Nick thinks he’s overpaid. Love it!
