Dana White warming back up to Nick Diaz

by John Morgan and Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com

"When you come over here, it's a whole other ball game, man. You don't run this show. I do. I'm going to make decisions sometimes that make the fans not too happy and piss people off here and there. But if you're going to run your business, you've got to do what you've got to do."

White may be stepping outside his comfort zone, as one reporter suggested during the impromptu Q&A session. But he doesn't see it that way. He's handling his business, even if he's doing things he might never do during the course of regular business.

He can only hope his approach pays off, and Diaz shows to do the job he's been contracted to do in its entirety. If that happens, White is more than happy to give out a title shot.

"I believe, and maybe I'm a little goofy here, I have a rapport with this kid, and that he and I can work together," White said.

Diaz is an incredibly exciting fighter with a style that ignites the crowd and pleases just about every type of mma fan... he could be an incredible asset to the company if him and dana do reach a workable relationship....

Diaz vs BJ is a fucking awesome fight its just a shame its not a 5 rounder. Should've waited and had it headline the first FX card or something.

 mmath not working again. Diaz boxes the ears off ellenberger and Kampmann, Shields stinks standing, all he has the option of doing is grappling. Shields is a better wrestlefucker than Diaz is about all( no disrespect to certain wrestlefuckers intended)

 If Diaz beats BJ, the GSP vs DIaz fight will be much bigger than the initial attempt.
