Nate Diaz Claims Joe Rogan Caused Him To Lose To Maynard
Joe Rogan's blatantly obvious and incredibly biased nature toward his preferred clientele may have once again placed the UFC commentator firmly on the hot seat.
"They were leading fans to believe I lost the fight," was the statement made in a recent video posted by UFC lightweight rising contender Nate Diaz, who came out on the losing end of a close split decision this past Monday night at UFC Ultimate Fight Night 20.
The cagefighting event?a sport which is growing rapidly in popularity?was aired live on Spike TV, with Diaz losing a rematch to fellow Ultimate Fighter reality show alumni and UFC top contender Gray Maynard.
Diaz has posted a video today on the popular Web site YouTube.com in which he lays the partial blame for his misfortune on well-known UFC commentators Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg.
Diaz doesn't stop there, either; he also "calls out" his opponent from Monday night's controversial match, challenging him to come out and show his battle scars.
?If anybody sees Gray Maynard, tell him to show his face today and see how it looks,? an upset Diaz stated. ?I got more landed strikes in that fight, and I threw more [strikes].?
?He (Rogan) must?ve been judging it on the person who he liked better, because obviously, as far as the commentary was concerned, everybody liked Gray.
?If the fans want to go back and judge the fight for themselves, put the TV on mute, if you can.?
Diaz is now the second fighter to complain regarding Rogan's obvious biased nature toward fighters he likes.
At UFC 104?when UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida successfully defended his title against Mauricio ?Shogun? Rua?Rogan continuously credited Shogun for his offense, without once mentioning that Rua's kicks were being countered by Machida's straight left counter-punching.
And as a result, the UFC 205-pound champion Machida urged his fans to also re-watch the unanimous decision, only this time on mute as well.
"The American commentators were pretty much biased," Machida told Sherdog.com.
"If you see the fight without audio, you will probably see a different fight. Shogun was a great opponent and had a nice strategy. He deserves all my respect as a fighter, but I was superior.?
Authors note: I see that Nate has taken his video down?my apologies. I hope from the above text you can get the "crux of the matter."
