Apparently, he wants to come across just as sexy and classy as his UFC 158 counterpart, Georges St-Pierre.
“I would like to put off the best image as I could, if I was given the opportunity,” Nick Diaz said. “To be honest with, a lot of times they’re pretty much making me out to be a villain. I fit that description as an evil villain. He (St-Pierre) fits the description as a good guy. Can I get buttered up for one Photoshopped image on a poster? I have had plenty of ugly posters.”
Diaz explained in recent weeks that he thinks St-Pierre is pampered, and that media magazines don't feature him in handsome photo spreads as much as his opponent.
“Georges likes to say I remind him of the bullies that picked on him growing up,” Diaz said. “I have to say, how many times have you had a gun to your head, Georges? How many of your best friends have been shot through the chest with a .45? How many of your best friends have been stomped (and) put to sleep in a coma?”
Diaz explained in the UFC 158 conference call that he keeps it real, while St-Pierre is essentially enjoying the high life.
"I don't mind if I have a camera crew sitting in the back of my car, I could give a shit. I just don't like what I'm not ready for, I just want to know about it," Diaz said of St-Pierre. "You got Georges, you got someone over there powdering his nose out and they are going to send him off for a video shoot. He's got someone making a twitter for him. Now he don't even know how to talk and don't even know how to act right. He's got people living his life for him out in the public. I just like to keep it real so I don't have to put on no image. I don't know how it works; I'm not in his shoes so I don't know. But, I just like to keep it real and be me."
