Cesar Gracie says that Nick Diaz wants to close the doors, rather than open the doors to things like the media. He says that the fight starts once you sign the contract and he doesn’t want to make nice with his opponent when he’s been training to fight him the entire time.
Carlos Condit is a first time father and he says that it’s not the easiest to go out and train as hard as you can every day when you know you have responsibilities at home with your family, but it inspires him.
Greg Jackson said that he thinks Carlos got into MMA like others do, because they have a need to do something with their energy. His father said that the mischief and negativity he had as a kid became a sharpness after he started in MMA.
Condit says that Diaz has holes in the game and he makes up for it by being so tough.
Diaz bikes 20 miles, spars for six rounds, and swims laps all in one day and the narrator says the day ends after midnight. Insane. His second grade teacher says that he’s the exact same as he was in the second grade. He doesn’t make eye contact and he speaks deliberately. Diaz says he never fit in anywhere. He said high school was hard times.
Bottom line: While it was nearly all Carlos Condit, the only interesting parts of the show were when Diaz was on screen. It was almost uncomfortable watching him. They started to delve into Condit’s background, which could be interesting, but his key story was that he’s a first time dad and it’s hard to train and be a dad. Ya, not too interesting.
