UFC Quick Quote: Nick Diaz is a great fighter, but a moron outside the cage

Esther Lin for Showtime

One of the many perils of living in the 209 La-La Land.

"I thank Nick Diaz for saying no to the Condit fight. I think he's in La-La Land. You lost your last two fights. You haven't won since 2011. He's probably beaten one or two wrestlers in his life. Look at his losses: GSP, Diego Sanchez, Joe Riggs; a lot of guys that could take him down or keep him cornered off. He's a great fighter and nobody can take that away from him, but outside the cage, he's a moron. If you think you can retire coming off back to back losses and think you're gonna jump right back into a title fight...he's just playing off the fact that he might be a great draw."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Tyron Woodley knows what it's like to compete under the same roof as 170-pound lightning rod Nick Diaz, having chewed some of the same dirt under the Strikeforce banner before migrating to the Octagon. That said, "The Chosen One" recognizes the Stockton slugger is a talented fighter, but also tells Steph Daniels that outside the cage, Diaz is a moron. Probably because Woodley was irked when the retired ex-number one contender tried to come back to UFC and steal a top spot against the winner of Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler, who like Woodley, compete at the UFC 171 pay-per-view (PPV) event later tonight (March 15, 2014) in Dallas, Texas. I guess that's what happens when you share a bag of weed with Rory MacDonald. And while we're at it, let's just go ahead and take Diaz out of the UFC rankings. Woodley may sound a bit demanding, but like he says, lazy pigs don't get no slop.
