Following his loss to Carlos Condit at UFC 143, Nick Diaz wasn_t pleased with the outcome of the five round fight and felt he was the victor.
Although Diaz had kind words for Condit, when speaking to Joe Rogan post fight, he told the crowd that he was like done with MMA:
"I_m not going to accept the fact that this was a loss. I_ve lost fights before, where, you know, like, I_m not going to accept that either.
"This ain_t right. I pushed him back the whole fight. I walked him down. I got the take down. I_m the guy who went on top. Had I thought I wasn_t ahead, right I_d bet you anything i_d have finished that arm lock.
"Hey Carlos is a great guy, I_m happy for him and his family.
"I think I_m done with this MMA. It_s been great out here. I_ve had a good career. You guys pay me way too much, but I don_t think I_m going to get enough to keep going in this. It_s been a good time. You know Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Good job Carlos, you_re the man, bro.
""I don_t need this s---. I pushed this guy backward the whole time, and he ran from me the whole fight. He ran this whole fight.
"He didn_t throw. I landed the harder shots. He ran the whole time. He kicked me in the leg with little baby leg kicks the whole fight. That_s the way they understand hpw to win in here, so I don_t want to play this game no more."
"... I_m out of this shit."
