I really hate using exclamation points in titles. As a matter of fact, I don't think I ever have. Until now. This week has just been insane, and tonight is the first night I've been able to gain computer access for a minute. It's a long story and I'm not going to bore you with it. But imagine all of the enjoyment I got spending my Thursday night delving into the mind of Nick Diaz, and others? Actually, no. Diaz wouldn't even let anybody else talk. And I'm ok with that. Today was Diaz's day. Face it. When he does meet his media obligations, and meets them with authority like this, we all win. Sit back and enjoy. We've attached plenty of audio and video for you guys below. Check it out: I'm basically listing this in order of importance and entertainment so we'll start with Nick's visit to Jay Mohr Sports on Fox Sports radio today. When I heard that Mohr was starting middays recently and would be broadcast locally here on Detroit 1130 The Fan I knew he'd be a success for the simple reason that he always slayed whenever he covered for Jim Rome's vacations in the past. What I didn't know is that he'd be can't miss radio each and every weekday. One of the great things about Mohr as an MMA fan is that he covers the UFC week in and week out. This interview with Diaz is not only soul barring - there's a moment where Nick says he can't even watch comedies because of his fighting state of mind- it's some good fun as well. That's because Jay makes it that way, and Nick of course has his own brand of humor when he's not being so brutally honest. Check the link below: Nick Diaz on Jay Mohr Sports - 3/14/13 If Nick was the most misunderstood man in the sport before this week, he certainly isn't now. That's right, the anti-bulls**t superhero is at again. In this interview with Tim and Sid of Toronto's FAN590, Diaz blatantly calls GSP a cheater and steroid user, and just like in the Mohr interview he admits to being scared of every opponent he's ever stepped into the cage with. He also cannot guarantee that he will pass his piss test post fight. So win or lose, GSP may still be the champion folks. It's ok though, he admits that he would not mind taking another year off from the sport. This is Nick Diaz's world - we just live in it. Nick Diaz - Toronto 590 interview - 3/14/13 "Georges just isn't Georges right now." - Dana White. Wanna watch 70 minutes of Dana White talking about all things UFC 158, TRT, and more? Then this is the video for you: Here are some highlights from the Thursday afternoon presser below. For the full presser follow this link. In the video below GSP gets plenty of love from his Montreal faithful before, and after he mixes it up with the future of combat sports. The kids ladies and gentlemen, the kids are our future. Alright, I know the media didn't ask any of the other four welterweights participating in the pay-per-view portion of Saturday's card questions at the presser - aside from one for Hendricks that Diaz interrupted - but we'll give them some love below. To close things out we leave you with two countdown videos featuring Carlos Condit vs. Johny Hendricks, and Jake Ellenberger vs. Nate Marquardt - Don't forget to come back for the weigh-ins tomorrow and follow us on twitter @hovmma.

This fight is not getting to much attention because of the two huge welterweight fights that are also on this card but it has a ton of implications on future title fights. Especially if Ellenberger wins since he is a big name and 7-2 in his UFC career. Look for fireworks from these two.
