Although Nick Diaz doesn't seem quite as dumb as his brother, there's still only a 15% chance of this fight actually happening.

nick is def the craziest and dumbest of the two. nate is a pretty reasonable guy all things considered

Nick is cool again, I guess.

If I remember right it was a really weird situation where the described incident did happen, but Nick Diaz wasn't the one there and somehow got accused. I could be remembering it wrong though.

Both the Diaz's are aggressive stockton weirdos with a mild dose of FAS but Nick has the extra layer of anxiety on top of it that just makes him all the more mystifying.

The Diaz brothers take turns making the other one look like the normal, stable one. It's really funny and it will continue to be right up until it has a serious human cost.

It was really nice, after the first Conor fight, to see Nate get to just be himself in interviews, not promoting an upcoming fight, but just being interviewed.

That time he ran into the desert out the backdoor of a childs birthday party missing ice cream cake.

That time he missed weight because he went for a swim.

Does UFC not do weigh ins on the same day as the fight because they assume everyone will still try a crazy dehydration/rehydration cut except now with only a few hours to rehydrate instead of just cutting actual bodyweight to make the weigh in?

They don't have to assume. People still cut weight for same day weigh ins in other combat sports.

Yeah, and then you combine that with people getting hit in the head while they're dehydrated and it does EXTRA sPEcail super brain damage.

You basically have to assume that athletes will do as much as possible for short term benefit even if its terrible for their long term health and protect them from themselves. There's been a lot of steps towards monitoring people competition weights vs their weight class to try and cut back on it but it's a complicated thing to enforce.
