This morning Nick Diaz saw his title fight against GSP cancelled, after he failed to show up at consecutive press conferences in Toronto and Las Vegas. Then he dissapeared, leading to countless Where's Waldo queries (see link). This evening Diaz surfaced, posting a video entitled "Looks like someone don't want me to win," on his YouTube account addressing the situation.
"Funny, one second I'm about to come into some money, do a little boxing, you know, f------, probably lose some teeth. But uh, I'm ready to get paid, ya know. So, I'll fight whoever, whatever, anything ya know.
"I'd definitely rather fight GSP of course. Ya know, I was ready to do some boxing, and they didn't like that. So they got me outta that, and they got me in the fight with GSP for the same money, or more money, or whatever.
"But now it looks like they get to save money, and I don't get paid, and I'm locked in a new contract. All these dealmakers making deals. All I know is I'm ready to fight. I'm sorry I didn't make it to the beauty pageant. But, ya know, I've never not showed up to a fight. I've never backed out of a fight in my life, that's not what I do. So I just wanted to throw that out there."
