Is Nick Diaz OK? | Luke Thomas

  • Published on Nov 13, 2019
  • Nick Diaz sat down for a lengthy interview as part of Ariel Helwani's ESPN MMA Show. It's the first time in years Nick has spoken at length to the media, leaving many to speculate as to his views of his brother Nate Diaz's career success, what he's been up to and whether he'll return to fighting for the UFC.
    I wanted to wait a few days before reacting to absorb what I had witnessed and to process it all. While at moments Nick seemed lucid and had interesting things to say about Jorge Masvidal, UFC 244, the BMF belt and more, there were also some other somewhat troubling elements to the interview as well. In this video, I discuss what I saw and try to answer the question in the title.

    Maybe all that vaping and weed and he is aging. Also he was never really articulate in expressing his thoughts nor is Nate. Some lucid things to say lol You mean not many lucid things was said. In your case you just ramble on and said the same things over and over. Now you are giving him respect never the less. "I don't know man. I don.t know " . My take you are worried about him.

  • Literally Sam Hyde

    I'd feel comfortable if he were rematching Condit. Ultimately I think he needs to scratch the itch of fighting again while it's still feasible for him. I wouldn't put him in there with a killer like Masvidal till we see where he's at physically.

    Your making too much out of this Brother. Things change so we need to check out his training. If he still hold his own against Andre Ward I'm pretty sure he should be able to do the same against Gamebread.

    He did repeat saying " no I'm not okay, my brother got kicked in the face "
    Think about it. His reference on that echoed with his body language looks like Nick is ready to fight.
    I totally get it and get you Nick, it's pride for family and your life. Jorge did disrespect so yeah. he is trying to keep it together until he gets a hold of Jorge. GO NICK!!!

    NO!!! Him and his brother both have been hit in the head too many times. Besides that they ONLY fight for money. NOTHING ELSE!!! That would be great if winner took all. Unfortunately thats not the fight game theyre in. Theyre just taking advantage of their WWE type fans. Im not hatin on their tactics though. If they were fighting opponents closer to their rankings there would be no money in it because we would have no clue who their opponents were. I think Nick/Nate just wanted 1 more money fight. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Definitely not same ol nick. I’ve always followed Nate and nick and understand they are not the best speakers, but a while
    Back after Kenny Florián and Tyron posted a social media thing nick responded and I could not make out a word and I thought he was drunk but clearly somethings up. He was on camera speaking shortly after his ban speaking clearly, so something is up and it sucks hope he’s alright. Fighters are tough but forged from hard times for hard times.

    This dude is such a patronizing peace of garbage. His uppity and overly intellectual approach to fighting is so overdone. The estrogen oozes out of his persona. Lowlife's like this really need to do something active in adulthood because talking about the actions of other men makes them sound beyond female. He is probably a feminist

    *** Luke Thomas Please Read This Comment**I am new to finding you're channel, via a Nick & Nate Fb Group, subscribed and hit the bell for all notifications. Ty for you're work. I couldn't agree with you more, Luke. There is reasons for him PERSONALLY calling out Texas, as a place to fight next.. There is a reason he's already complimented about Madvidal, back in the day, and now Nate losing to Masvidal, right before Nick's ban is coming to an end. Please think about this people. This isn't just mysteriously how things end up lining up, or falling in place. I also believe the media help make Nick look this way, that's why Ariel even said, the video was so long, they cut it short.. They also chopped it, to make it look this way, it's more then obvious to me. You can 100% tell, if you pay attention to the cuts in the interview. Most all sports have a predetermined & scripted outcome to them. You are an authentic reporter, in a theatrical world. You don't think the UFC, Nick, and others haven't already noticed, what you are noticing. I believe that's pry most of the reason, Nick named Texas, because he/UFC already knows these other places he may not pass. I'm not judging this video by any means, I think it was a very authentic & from the heart video, but you have to realize, they have already sold their soul, to the life of scripted theater, loonnnggg ago. Nate & Nick are pry the two most authentic guys in the UFC, and that's why they have been silenced, and had so many problems with the UFC, they dont want to take a scripted loss, for the money, they want to fucking whoop some ass and were fighting against the script. Like the old Strike Force, WEC used to be. Not because they didn't want to take fights, or blah blah blah like media & tv want you to think. From Football, to Golf, to WWF, to the UFC, to mainstream media, plus much more is all theater. Please check out "Zachary K. Hubbards" work on TheXvid before he is fully silenced. He teaches ""Gematria"", which means ""Geometry In Language"" on channels ""Gematria Effect News"" & ""Gematria Effect Sports"", which is a Ancient Geometry nurmerologic code, exposing how all the things I've mentioned are scipted. This is no joke people. If you make it to check out this mans work, and dont believe what he is exposing, pls fact check everything he is saying, and try to prove him wrong. He is only exposing with what is put right in front of our faces, everyday. Nate Diaz was the perfect 35th win for Masvidal, especially when Nate Diaz sums to 35 in Gematria. It's all geometry/number ritual, birthdates, day of age, dates on the calendar, ect ect. Just like they have always told us the whole world is built from Geometry. Miles to the sun, circumference of the earth, ect ect, tis the same way everything is scripted around us in theater. Sorry for the long winded comment, but if you made it through this far, please do yourself a favor, and go channels I mentioned above to learn more about this knowledge.

    If a grown ass man says he wants to fight, and can pass all the regulations to be allowed to fight, then let him fight. If you are concerned the UFC doesn't have good enough regulations, say that and push for them to get changed. Its not my job to create these regulations, and I don't claim to be able to do that job better than the people already doing it.

      @Stoned Mario You have a strong confirmation bias and are twisting my words. I know you mean well, I guess you are quite young and most of your knowledge is from reading and not through experience.

      Also if you ever smoked weed before you would know that yes it actually is TRUE that your first couple time smoking you may experience paranoia this is a well know occurrence (you claimed this to be false). Of course everyone is different so some may experience more than others, or none at all, commonly it can induce some paranoia though.

    • Stoned Mario
      Stoned Mario 16 days ago

      Shlutty Mc'Shlutface
      People that are prone to diseases such as schizophrenia may experience increasing paranoia over time so I would ask you to please stop smoking (is that honest enough for you?). This DOES NOT happen to everyone though and is actually rare. For example my dad has been smoking weed since he was 17 he’s now 60 and he’s perfectly fine. You can’t just claim that if you smoke weed for a long time you will become paranoid that’s false information.

    • Shlutty Mc'Shlutface
      Shlutty Mc'Shlutface 16 days ago

      @Stoned Mario not true. It started happening about 10 years after i started. Please be more honest and open about this issue. Higher cbd with lower thc helps but the topic being ignored and buried is doing everyone an injustice.

      Shlutty Mc'Shlutface
      When you first start smoking weed yes that will happen to you. After about 3 times that stops happening and you really get to enjoy the experience. I feel like weed heightens your sense that’s why we feel paranoid because we’re being extra careful.

    Glad you said it. He is clearly suffering from severe CTE, and is not the "same old Nick". People who want guys like him to fight are pathetic and ignorant. You don't risk someones life for your entertainment -especially if you're a "fan" of them.

    Hey Luke, I like your logic and analysis. Maybe just speak more straight and frank. No need for so many disclaimers and carefulness. Anyone interested in MMA usually aren’t from the PC brigade. Basically don’t waffle so much but speak your mind and to the point. I don’t mean to criticise, but it makes me wanna skip forward when you spend half your time explaining how you don’t mean to offend anyone etc. hope that makes sense. Keep up the great work and thanks always for your contribution to the MMA world. Cheers.

    This clown comes off as "ALL WISE", but needs more proof that he was inebriated? Anyone in their right mind, or at least above the age of 16, can see clearly Nick was high or drunk on something. Doesn't take a genius to figure this out. Doesn't help either that he has been punched in the brain several times. Lastly, on top of all that, Nick is just spacey and can't articulate his thoughts very well mixed along with frustration. THERE I SAID IT. There's your CORRECT analysis for ya hot shot...
