WOW!

Words cannot explain how insane, epic and out of hand things got at the press conference today. Never in my life of watching this sport have I seen a press conference quite like this one, but I can tell you this, a bomb is about to go off on saturday night.

With Georges St. Pierre visually agitated and Nick Diaz throwing more trash his way than a waste management company could possibly handle, this fight has now unnofficially become what I believe one of the most hyped fights in UFC history.

At this point, there is no telling what each competitor will do at the weigh-ins let alone on fight night. But you know what? As a fan I'm going to do you a favour and tell you to stop reading this immediately and start watching THIS video below. RIGHT. NOW.

    I love how Dana puts Ariel Helwani in his place. Starts at 10:00. Ariel Helwani is the worst reporter in the world of sports.

    Wow, you guys are harsh. Worst reporter in the world of sports?

    Clearly you're exaggerating. In fact I think he does a really good job, especially in comparison to most other reporters.

    Name one MMA reporter you think is better?

    Andrea Calle is better... Looking : ) but seriously Karyn dies a better job in my eyes, Ariel plays dumb too much and he instigate fighters all the time, Dana called his BS and stopped him, BTW I promised Dana that I would stop insulting him if he made Hunt vs JDS happen and he did so I am changing my avatar...

    Karyn Bryant is better than Ariel Helwani?

    How can you say that a reporter is good when they butcher the Portuguese language in order to seem cool to the fighters, confusing the F*ck out of them in the process and then ironically has to speak English again anyway to clarify.

    Most annoying S#IT ever!! Learn the language on your own time, not in the middle of an interview!!!!!

    I do not speak the language so I wouldn't know if she is fluent or not, but it does get confusing when someone switches from one language to another even if you are fluent in both, it happens to me all the time, however more than been cool I apreciate when someone tries to speak to me in my first language, it feels like they are showing you respect, and even when she does that I find her more entertaining that Ariel. But that is only my opinion.

    This must be a new video or it was edited.

    It now starts at around 3:00 and 3:30 is when Ariel gets his *** handed to him. Enjoy!

    GOAT Press Conference.
    Diaz and GSP taking shots at each other was gold but my favourite part was Condit laughing his *** off through it haha

    Definitely one of the most entertaining press conferences ever...
    I think people should give Nick a break, not everyone can handle the social situations smoothly. It is a huge pressure to go in front of all the media and fans, answer questions and know that every single word will be quoted. And who really cares about the work-out no show? Nick is someone who's very careful with his body, his diet is tight and he knows exactly what would deteriorate his performance. All that matters is that he'll bring it saturday.
    Pick your side lowkickers!

    Wolf Tickets.... It's painful to watch Nick speak in public but I get what he is saying. Every fight needs to be "sold" but, as mad daddy Dana said... if he would just play the game a little... things would be much easier. This is going to be an interesting fight for sure. I wonder how GSP felt setting up there with 3 guys who want to give him a beating LOL Tough time to be the champ... lots of talent in the 170lb division.

    Always rooting for the underdog but... I think GSP is going to hold on to his belt a little longer. Wouldn't mind if I'm wrong.

    BRING ON THE FIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think Nick explained the reason but someone in his camp did. It was a money grab from the other guy if I remember correctly. So Nick decided against the match.

    Not only a money grab, but the money from the proceeds (mostly ticket sales) was being shadily handled by the promoter. On top of that the weight of the match changed last minute.

    Regardless of the financial aspect, I still think Nick was also worried about getting his *** handed to him by someone as skilled as Braulio Estima.

    See, I think that has some logical reasoning behind it. I just don't think its likely. He signed the fight knowing well who Braulio is, and what he's capable of.

    Worst part about everything is Dana saying Diaz will be cut with a failed test, and Diaz saying he's not sure if he will pass it or not.

    Dana shutting down Ariel was hilarious. I think Ariel has been getting a little bit high on himself this past year so it was kind of refreshing to see him shut down and get told. I wonder if he cried later.

    Let this also put to bed the thought that Ariel is some type of incredible reporter. He's Dana's lackey. Whenever he goes too far for Dana's standards, he gets ***** slapped.

    Nick grew up in a violent place and has social anxiety why doesn't the UFC pay for Nick to see the best Dr's money can buy? bc Nick's problems sell tickets and the UFC doesn't care to cure him.

    According to Diaz, Georges is on "plenty of steroids" and the UFC won't do anything about it.

    Wow - I'm not sure if it's true or not, but It wouldn't surprised me if he was either. I love this ****.

    hoehel to the rescue :
    wolf tickets 283 up, 108 down
    1)To speak aggressively to someone without intending to back it up with violence.
    2)to do a favor which is redeemable by a favor.
    1)"He's selling wolf tickets", meaning he's barking but not going to bite.
    2)"i'm calling in all my wolf tickets to get this guy", meaning all people who owe will help me out.

    Nick has a kind of genius that is hard to understand for some people. Wolf Tickets? I mean it's like a kids in the hall or portlandia sketch. Nicks a decent human being and all the kids and fundraising events he and his brother do are real. So when a lady pulls up and insults him it bothers him in a way a lot of people fail to see. What we get to see is a stream of consciousness improv that prob only he understands but is still entertaining.
