Full Nick Diaz video interview on HDNet's 'Inside MMA'

Former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz was a recent guest on HDNet's "Inside MMA." And he wasn't mad. He wasn't calling anyone out or complaining about money either. In fact, he was calm, relaxed and surprisingly articulate during his televised segment.

On his upcoming fight against Georges St. Pierre:

"It's all about how you come out and fight. It can always go different, you know? I could go on the bottom a lot, but are you gonna be able to advance position? Are you gonna be able to do damage from there? Are you gonna stall? Are you gonna fight? There's a lot of different stuff that can happen. It's up to me to kinda make some stuff happen. Five rounds is a lot of time for me to work with in this one. I enjoy fighting five rounds. I work hard to be in good condition to fight for five rounds. It's important to plan for everything. That's what I'm good at. He's fighting somebody who's gonna do everything."

So what happened to the media monster we've been hearing about over the past few months? The one who caused a couple of roster changes at UFC 137? Was that simply "pre-fight" Diaz, who was in the zone for his headlining bout at UFC 137 opposite B.J. Penn? Diaz answers all those questions -- and more -- in the video above.
