Nick Diaz is retired and only wants a title fight or a fight with the retired Georges St. Pierre.
Now, Nick has responded. Nate Diaz’s manager Mike Kogan had the following to say about his challenge:
“Diego isn’t important enough to warrant a response. He should count his lucky stars two retarded judges were watching Oprah reruns while he was fighting and then handed him a win.”
