Jason Miller has created a blog named dontbescaredhomie.com where he belittles Nick Diaz and flat out calls him out. Miller says Diaz is afraid to fight him and is quoted as saying “He makes me want to donate to an Asperger Autism Charity. He makes me want to raise awareness about Autism because something is off about him; maybe it’s just all of the weed…I don’t know.” Personally I think it would be a very good fight. Will we ever get to see it is the real question at hand.
Roy Nelson is very upset that he was pulled off the co-main event slot for UFC 125 due to Shane Carwin’s back injury. Nelson was quoted as saying “I think my feelings were a little hurt. I was hoping they could find somebody to replace [Carwin]. This is one of the biggest cards of the year, and I was in the co-main event, and I was really trying to make sure my knee was better. The UFC really pushed me hard to get through with my rehab so I could fight on this card. My doctors said I shouldn’t fight again until February or March, but I stepped up because the UFC wanted me to. I stepped up for the UFC, and I hoped they would do the same for me. The thing is nobody wants to fight a fat guy like me. Cro Cop is a legend in this sport, and I would’ve loved to have fought him. I’d like to fight [Antonio Rodrigo] Nogueira for the same reason. I’d love to fight [Alistair] Overeem, Brock Lesnar or The Undertaker. [UFC President] Dana White asks people, ‘So, you want to be a f—ing fighter?’ I love to fight. I’m one of those guys.” One thing is for certain, for someone so disgustingly fat and out of shape, Nelson has a granite chin. Junior Dos Santos hit him with everything but the kitchen sink and he just kept coming.
Cain Velasquez was recently quoted as saying “GSP is a great fighter. He’s one of the best out there. His style of fighting is strong and I think he is going to be the champion for a long time, but guys are always coming after him. Guys want to be in his position, but as long as he keeps improving, he’ll be fine.” I wonder how Cain’s teammate and friend Josh Koscheck feels about this comment? Everyone needn’t get their panties in a bunch, GSP will once again dominate Koscheck.
