Nate Diaz Thinks Nick Diaz Will Stay Retired from Mixed Martial Arts
You probably won't be shocked to learn that Nate Diaz believes his big bro Nick will stay retired from mixed martial arts. It's triathlon season, you see, and Nick has more important things to worry about than getting in the cage and losing decisions to guys who aren't actually fighting him (even though they are).
The younger Diaz told Ariel Helwani all about it yesterday after the UFC on FOX 3 press conference in New York City, via MixedMartialArts.com:
Triathlon season is starting so he's getting ready, getting in shape for that and concentrating on being in shape, being healthy and helping me out and coaching me for this fight [against Jim Miller]. Right now, I don't think [we will see him back inside the Octagon]. He's big on, like I said, staying in shape and just being healthy right now. He's not worried about it. I think he's retired. He hasn't been into this whole fighting thing for some time...since everything that goes on with the funny wins and losses. And not just for him, but for people on our team. So, I just think he's relaxed right now, you know?
I think he's pretty set on his retirement, though. I kind of agree with him [about his decision]. It's hard to say—he's my brother. I'm not going to tell him to go fight somebody. I think he's doing the right thing. He made enough money to just chill back, sit back and relax. People don't understand: Nick never had nothing. He came from not much, so when he complained a lot about not making a lot of money it's because there were so many people making more money than him, and he works 10 times hard than them. So, they definitely paid him enough money to not have to anything. He doesn't need to fight.
In six months, we've gone from "Nick doesn't make enough money" to "Nick has made enough money to just chill back."
Do you believe Nick Diaz will stay retired?
Nick isn't a big spender. He's downright frugal, actually, and his only major expense is likely the "medicine" he smokes on a daily basis. Nate is correct when he says that Nick doesn't have to fight anymore. Nick Diaz would be just fine
But I still don't buy it.
Nick Diaz will return to the cage by the early months of 2013 at the very latest, and if he only receives a six-month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, we'll see him return much sooner than that.
His crazy talk may have you convinced, and his little brother may truly believe Nick will never return to the cage, but it's going to happen at some point. The only question is when.
