Diaz Ready To Fight Despite All The Bulls**t
It has been one hell of a week for Nate Diaz heading into his return at UFC 244, as he nearly didn’t get on a plane for his main event against Jorge Masvidal.
“I wasn’t happy about any of it actually,” Diaz said on Monday’s UFC 244 media call regarding a failed drug test that was found to be due to tainted supplements. “I think it was all just a big old bunch of bullsh*t. I just wanted to not be a part of the big old f*cking secret. I think the thing about people on steroids— people on steroids don’t talk about steroids out loud. I’m like if we’re going to have to get down to the point, let’s get down to the point. I’m not going to hold a secret or figure it out afterwards.
“We need to get this out of the way, because I’ve got sh*t I’ve got to put my mind on. If we’ve got to cancel the fight, that’s what we’re going to have to do, but let’s get that sh*t out the way because that’s whack. I thought was all made up and a bunch of bullst*it anyways. It’s behind so now we can move on.”
“That was the biggest thing,” Diaz said of USADA telling Diaz that they will wait to announce it until after the fight or after an investigation. “I’m not trying to throw nobody under the rug like that. It was just a big secret and it was shady and it sounded like some sh*t people on steroids are involved in. I didn’t feel comfortable with that. So I’m like let’s just put it on the table then. Because if you’re going to tell me right now that I’m going to test positive for some sh*t and everyone is going to go buck wild, then I don’t even want to fight.
“It’s only cheating if you jump in under the influence of that sh*t, right? So I’m like let’s just say I did accidentally take this sh*t, which I didn’t, but let’s say I did though. Well then let’s just f*cking fight in a couple months when the sh*t wears off. I have no problem with that. I don’t care if it ruins your show. You ain’t ruining my whole legacy. I’m all natural. If we was cavemen, I’d be the hardest caveman out there.”
“I knew I was cleared and good to go anyway,” Diaz said of his threat to walk from UFC 244. “I was like fix it, you guys are going to make up some bullsh*t eventually, so let’s just get it cleared the f*ck up right now. You guys clear it up, and I’ll fight and I’m going to be on fair ground.
“I ain’t going to be on no ‘after the fight this is why he won or lost’ type of s**t. I ain’t playing that sh*t, you know what I’m saying? It’s going to be on fair ground.”
“I don’t want to have no excuses for winning or losing,” Diaz said. “I just want it to be a fair fight like it should be. I’ve seen other people get in trouble for this type of thing before, they keep a big old secret, they’re like ‘let’s keep this on the low cause we might ruin a show.’ I’m like no, there is no f*cking show if we’re not going to do it right so let’s make it happen right.
“The second I tell them, all of a sudden it’s right and cleared. It’s kind of funny to me, the whole situation. I’m going to leave it behind me. I’m done with all that sh*t now. If they want to call me on that kind of sh*t again, we can test everyday for the rest of my life, cause I’ve been taking all the same sh*t I’ve been taking for the last five years. Don’t try play me, cause I ain’t playing back.”
The substance LGD-4033- was found in an organic, vegan, plant-based daily multivitamin taken by Diaz, which has not deterred Diaz from taking his daily supplements.
“I did not stop taking any supplements,” Diaz revealed. “I did not stop doing anything that I do. I just kept on keeping on. I doubled up on supplements cause I got all vegan, all Garden Life, all f*cking just plant-based sh*t. I just kept going. The next test came in, and I’m like what’s this one say, like laughing and they’re like ‘this one you’re testing higher,’ and I’m like, ‘You guys are f*cking with me now.’
“I kept doing what I was doing. They’ve got to retest, or check their sh*t, cause something’s wrong with their sh*t. You guys are over here trying to stress me out when I’ve got a fight. This ain’t fair grounds right here. This ain’t fair grounds for me, you’re over here sweating me about this. So how about the fight’s f*cking off and let’s let UFC and Masvidal and all these motherf*ckers sweat.”
