DFW: 'Nick Diaz does not return my calls or texts'


UFC President Dana White recently sat down with MidddleEasy, and talked Nick Diaz, who is currently scheduled to fight George St. Pierre for the Welterweight championship of the world at UFC 158 on March 16, 2013, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

"This is a fight that he wanted," said White. He really wanted this fight bad. And Georges St-Pierre called him out. He's getting it. I expect Diaz to be there. Nick Diaz does not return my calls or texts. Nothing. It's Nick Diaz. He doesn't have to call me, he doesn't have to text me. But he needs to show up to the press conference."

"I would be blown away if he did it twice. It just would not be a good move. The thing about Nick Diaz is that Nick Diaz shows up for fights. Nick Diaz shows up and fights his ass off. He is not a big fan of the pre-fight promotion, but you have to do it. Whether you're Nick Diaz, Anderson Silva or whoever you are -- it's in your contract."

"You can actually be cut. We can cut you for that. How fun would the press conferences be if nobody f------ showed up but me? It wouldn't be too good. I've proved that you be punished if you don't show up for those things. You either won't fight the big fight that you were supposed to fight or you'll be cut.

'Nick Diaz does not return my calls or texts'

"And I'm going to keep rewarding him over and over while I punish guys who are professional." - Dana

And LOL @ Dana threatening with "you can be cut" and acting all tough.  Dana paid Diaz a bonus for showing up for the Condit press stuff!

Having Dana upset is not a good look for anyone.

A title shot after a loss, I wish I got punished like that at my job.

Dana also said that's who Diaz is and he doesn't have to communicate with him, but he does have to promote the fight. Phone Post

UFC President Dana White recently sat down with MidddleEasy

This wasn't an interview. I'm pretty sure Dana was the only one sitting. It was a media scrum, and his comments weren't said exclusively to Middle Easy.

This is basic news reporting stuff really.

After GSP, cut him and leave him to the smaller shows, he clearly can't be bothered!

And before people say 'Diaz can do what he wants, he doesn't have to suck up to the boss and attend press conferences and promote a fight"....it's in his contract to do so, so yeah, he does, if he didn't want to, he should go fight in the lower leagues Phone Post

nick diaz nut hugger -  He shows up to fight. Who gives a fuck if he answers the phone all the time or at all? Isn't that what voicemail is for? Phone Post

This is fucking Nick Diaz, or whatever.


I can't fucking make it to the phone, or whatever.


Leave a message and I'll fucking call you back, or whatever.


Fucking Beep, or whatever.

Voicemail is for when you're not home, but he's calling Nicks cellphone. Cellphones are for when you're not home, so you wouldn't use voicemail. Your argument is invalid. Phone Post


If we're in a meeting or you're in my class and you whip out your ringing cell phone and answer it, I don't care who you are, you can GTFO.


Yes, mobiles have voice mail.  Think Nick's got his hooked up to a headset when he's training or doing a triathlon or some shit?


I don't fucking think so homey, or whatever.

Fucking hilarous headline. Love Nick, dont care one way or another about the antics.

Why is nick in ufc? 3 reasons. Money from his fights, fan base that is fanatical, lastly because he is Lauzon-esqe in that his fights are really fucking exciting.

Nick isnt going anywhere unless one of those 3 things change. Phone Post

Billytk - I don't care that Nick doesn't answer Dana's calls, I don't blame him I wouldn't want my boss calling me at home when I'm off work either, BUT if the calls are regarding the upcoming fight then Nick should at least call back when he can otherwise the UFC should take him out of the main event fight since blindly trusting him to show up has proven to be a bad move for others
He shows up to fight. Dana shouldn't even have his cell phone number. He should have Cesar's cell phone number. Problem fucking solved. Phone Post

it seems so simple, hard to comprehend why it's even an issue

On top of it all, i would bet that dana is absolutely a fan of nicks. I think he would like to see nick shake up gsp a bit.

As part owner/boss of ufc, dfw probably hates nicks bullshot. But at the end of the day, i guarantee dana is pulling for him as a fighter. Phone Post

Even in that interview said whatever, it's Nick Diaz and he always comes to fight.  

He just warned that he'd better do the press this time.


I wonder if they'll have one of those extra things besides the countdown and pre-fight press conferences.


'Win a date with Nick' would be fucking hilarious.
