Dana White: '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.

Seems like it is eating you up a lot more than Dana. This thread full of obsessed Diaz lovers and haters is exactly why Nick can command main event status.

i'm sure there is a pride aspect to this but here you have a fighter who is a royal fuckup. blew a huge main event already, coming of a suspension for a second positive drug test, no showed at a major bjj tournament, was a hassle at the last promotion too, etc. a major, world class, fuck up.now, because the biggest star in your promotion wants to fight him, he is back in a main event that he doesn't deserve. what, i would imagine, eats dana up inside is not knowing if nick is going to fuck it up - yet again.
