Apparently, someone out there isn't a fan of Nick Diaz and his new MMA promotion. A public website is now dedicated to making fun of the former Strikeforce champion.
"War MMA"—which can be found at nickdiazpromotions.com—could become a legitimate regional MMA enterprise, provided that Diaz has his promoter's license approved by the California State Athletic Commission, according to MMA Junkie.
Diaz seems serious about the endeavor, as War MMA even has its own official Twitter account.
But one MMA fan is taking a public shot at the Stocktonian, mimicking his website's address with nickdiazpromotion.com and displaying the following message: "nick diaz lost to carlos condit. get over it."
Fight Opinion was the first to spot the website, and although it was initially reported to be a hack of Diaz's original site, it's clearly an alternate URL meant to take a stab at Diaz fans.
UFC 143 featured a interim welterweight title fight between Diaz and Carlos Condit, which ended in one of the most controversial decisions in company history.
Instead of his usual aggressive all-out attack, a more careful Condit elected to outbox and out-manuever Diaz for the better part of five rounds in their main event bout, winning a unanimous nod on all three judges' scorecards to secure a match with Georges St-Pierre.
Many MMA fans were outraged at the result, with the common consensus being that Diaz had clearly won the first, second and fifth rounds.
That proved not to be the case according to FightMetric, which scored the fight for Condit due to his advantage in total strikes—particularly with kicks, a notable weakness shared by other members of the Cesar Gracie BJJ team like Nate Diaz and Gilbert Melendez.
Since losing his own title shot against St-Pierre at UFC 158, Diaz has proposed retirement at 29 years old, unless he gains a rematch against "Rush" or a superfight with middleweight champion Anderson Silva at a future event, according to Ariel Helwani of UFC Tonight (h/t Bloody Elbow).
