09:22 AM ET 10.06 | Nick Diaz has never been one to hold back his true feelings. And he made it known this week that he's not a big fan of the upcoming fight between pound-for-pound king Anderson Silva and Stephan Bonnar. In an interview on Spike TV's MMA Uncensored Live (via MMA Mania), Diaz called the bout "a joke." Silva, the middleweight champion, will move up to light heavyweight to face Bonnar, a journeyman, at UFC 153 on Oct. 13 in Brazil. "If I was making a joke, like, 'Who are they gonna get to fight Anderson Silva, right now? Me or Stephan Bonnar?' it would have been a big, laughing matter," Diaz said on the show.

Diaz should be an expert on what jokes are, since he and his brother are jokes.

Diaz is still just being a baby because Silva wouldn't waste his time fighting a nobody like Diaz

The UFC will give us Silva-GSP in 2016, when both are washed up and the fight is irrelevant. What is it with the UFC lately.....too many lackluster cards one after another and top fighters in their primes facing inferior opponents. I understand that guys like Silva have run through their divisions, but there are enough top notch fighters to put together better matchups than say Silva-Bonner or Silva-Sonnen III. Let Silva fight Jones, give me something dammit.

the real joke is that this clown is still under suspension, and isn't eligible to fight anyway.
