Nate Diaz “Doesn’t Feel Sorry” For Twitter Comments According to Manager

Mike Kogan, manager of UFC lightweight contender Nate Diaz, stated today that his client isn’t showing any remorse following his controversial use of the other f-word on Twitter this past week, directed at bantamweight star on the rise, Bryan Caraway, also making it clear that it was not in any way a homophobic statement.

Kogan, speaking via MMAFighting.com said:

“Nate doesn’t feel remorse for what he said. I don’t feel remorse for what he said. I don’t feel remorse for defending what he said or elaborating on what he said. Because it was not a homophobic statement. It was not intended to offend homosexuals. We weren’t even talking about homosexuals. One can debate the multiple uses of this term. We can sit here and debate in the English language, there’s a lot of words that mean a lot of different things, but whatever. As it is, it wasn’t intended to be used the way people tried to twist the way it was being used. So therefore, what does he have to feel bad about? The fact that [Caraway] shouldn’t gloat over other person’s issues and try to kiss ass to make a point? Did anybody ask Bryan Caraway about his stance on marijuana? No. Nobody asked Bryan Caraway anything. They just gave him the damn money because he was chasing after Dana all over Twitter begging for the g——n bonus. Just take your money and go away.”

“If we would have made a homophobic statement, or a statement that was clearly intended to insult homosexuals, that’s one thing. You come out and say, ‘Hey, you know what, I’m really sorry it hurt people. We didn’t mean to do that.’ But to me, and this is just my philosophy, and I’m sure it’s going to be disagreed with by many people. This is how I think, and how Nate thinks. The mere fact that there is a protocol to deal with these crisis situation implies its lack of sincerity. I’m not trying to throw people under the bus. I’m just saying, people are out there making their opinions known and I guess, randomly, some opinions are more bolder than the others. Or maybe there’s some kind of Twitter hate meter, if it goes up too high then you start to punish people. I don’t really know. It really doesn’t matter. It is what it is.”
