HomeBoxing · Fighter Talk Fernando Vargas Thinks Nick Diaz Didn’t Want To Fight Him Bruno November 30, 2012 Boxing, Fighter Talk 17 Comments Past IBF and WBA boxing champ Fernando Vargas thinks that Nick Diaz was the one who declined to fight him in 2011 in this video interview. He also says Vitor Belfort has the best hands in MMA. Tweet Pin It Top Paid UFC Fighters Since UFC 46 In 2004 – Career Purse Earnings Mark Super Samoan Hunt – The Art Of Fighting 17 Comments SEAN_VANCE November 30, 2012 He declined the fight with Vargas cos Dana convinced Nick to fight in the UFC against BJ Penn for more money, then title shot eliminator with COndit… Vargas has no belt, so nothing to gain if he won or lost for Diaz. ANyways, Im sure Nick would box him, but Vargas would never MMA Diaz. Log in to Reply shocktime November 30, 2012 Smart man get out the game before your brain dead and your body is toast. Log in to Reply metallicafan November 30, 2012 Vitor is def the superior fighter over Diaz. It would not be pretty if they were to fight. Log in to Reply ktktk November 30, 2012 why is diaz always running from everybody???…mayhem, vargas, gsp, condit, etc. Then he turns around and calls them pussies. I know he’s a headcase, but does he seriously have no one around him that can point out how he’s always acting like a little punk. Clearly not a fan of Nick, couldn’t care less if he ever returns to MMA. However, I would LOVE to see how he does in the boxing ring. Especially given the high praise he gets from MMA fans for his hands. Log in to Reply Lazer 212 November 30, 2012 Good interview. I like how his son is interested in taking up MMA. Log in to Reply blzd November 30, 2012 @SEAN_VANCE this difference is Diaz already trains in boxing so the transition would be easier for him while Vargas has no mma background so it would be a big disadvantage for him to to fight Diaz Log in to Reply Young November 30, 2012 @ktktk how is he running from anyone of those fighters? Mayhem shouldnt even be named he is not a contender at all, if I recall condit was physically running from nick during their fight. He got robbed by a runnin scared punk. I didn’t see condit running from Gsp, so what does that tell you kid? Get your facts straight and stop hating. Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim November 30, 2012 metallicafan- dude lol vitor maybe the superior boxer but not fighter. go watch sakuraba vs vitor and then get back to me Log in to Reply icolater November 30, 2012 Diaz is the best boxer in mma, I have boxed for YEARS and besides his footwork nick has amazing timing and very accurate shots and he understands how to use combos and dummys. Log in to Reply FedorFailsAgain December 1, 2012 The argument could be made that Nick Diaz ducks fights all the time via smoking a banned substance (weed) and getting banned from the sport. He knows that smoking weed before a fight will be traced in his body, he knows that he will be banned each time he smokes it and he does it anyways. Imagine how many opponents of UFC caliber would have beaten his sorry ass by now (sorry, beating a Light Weight fighter in BJ Penn doesn’t impress me).

Diaz was being lined up for over a year to fight miller in strikeforce. Meanwhile mayhem publicly ridiculed diaz, calling him a scared little bitch and stealing his ‘don’t be scaed homie’ catchphrase. diaz kept ducking the fight and mayhem while btching and complaining about things like gsp (who didn’t even fight in the same organization at that time). i personally was very embarrassed for a guy like diaz to get made a bitch by a guy like mayhem. And Mayhem was #1 contender at that time btw. If you think Condit ran you need your eyes checked or you don’t understand fighting or martial arts at all. NICK lost that fight unfortunately more than condit won it. It you paid more attention to the UFC and watched Nick’s interviews you’d see what I am talking about and what ktktk is talking about when it comes to all those guys including condit. Unfortunately, Nick is not a fighters fighter. He likes to cherry pick his fights and bitch about everything he can. he’s one of the few fighters still complaining about $ and he’s actually one of the top paid guys. Log in to Reply Punchy December 1, 2012 @Young Diaz lost against Condit because he was out skilled. Say he ran or whatever you want, but Diaz got out punch. Look little one, you need to learn more about MMA. Diaz doesn’t know how to cut off the ring and it showed in that fight. Dude is an idiot and a cry baby quitter. Log in to Reply hot2hndle December 1, 2012 most of u guys are noobs at mma if u think nick diaz runs from fighters or fights…fact #1 that fool is the one always causing fights. fact #2 victor better fighther than nick…come on first victor is way heavier and if they were the same weight…today nick would whoop vitor up…slowly brain dead? yes but its not Vargas..it’s some of u idiots that makes comments on this site.

Fernando has a beautiful family and I get to see him a few times out of the year. Good vid! Bruno: That’s cool. I wish I had the time to make a boxing site. Log in to Reply icolater December 2, 2012 @ jockstrap Sorry but Condit ran, using his kicks from the outside was the only way he could win agains someone with better boxing. Fact. Log in to Reply icolater December 2, 2012 @jockstrap your a fool Log in to Reply Young December 3, 2012 Lol I guess Diaz didn’t literally slap condit like a girl for running like that. Condit says he’s a warrior, what a joke. Mayhem wasn’t and will never be a factor in mma. We all know what would happen if they fought. @jockstrap what did condit do? He ran and kicked him in the legs if anything he won 2 rounds, if you want to talk about interviews find the one where condit admitted to running because he knows what would to happen just like all the other fighters who wanted to trade. Mayhem was just another #1 contender, there’s a new # 1 contender every 2 months get out of here with that. Diaz was the champ not another “number 1 contender”. Condit didn’t run from anyone in his career besides nick, he didn’t even run from Gsp. Like I said, WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?
