Rumor has it, Nick is starting his own mixed martial arts promotion based out of Stockton, CA.


The news was confirmed by the CSAC, but beyond that, there is little further information available at this point.

Lol, I love how often you nerds bring up join date, as if it mean something. Judging by the people who post here, it makes me less of a douche for not being here as long. The ignorance on the Internet embarrass's me.

Your green name is outweighed by his join date. UG rules...

Lol..because he lost to GSP?...along with every other WW for the last 6 years. Come on man..he is the #4 ranked welterweight in the world.

I think Nick can cut it at the top...the very top (GSP) is a place held by one man. Can't knock Nick for that.Oh well. I guess your opinion counts more because of you 08 join date.

OGT any small business owner will tell you that the owner winds up doing A LOT by themselves. If he is thinking of having a staff and accountant and lawyer and all kinds of people to support marketing, logistics, legal and financial issues for a small show in stockton...that is already a bad sign that Nick doesn't realize what he is getting himself into. Shannon Knapp does everything from put out the chairs to pass out the gloves, do the publicity and promotion, negotiate contracts and fighter pay to help set up the cage. And Invicta is the largest woman only fight promotion in the country.

I think its foolish to think Nick will be doing all of that himself, just like how Dana doesn't do all of that for the UFC. Obviously nick won't be crunching numbers and doing the finances and whatnot, the UFC has numerous employees, as does Bellator, I'd assume if this thing gets off the ground it'd be similar.Just my guess :)

My guess is they are using his name to promote a brand. I doubt Nick will have an active organizational role though, he really has not shown the acumen for it.No hate, just my observation. He can be like Chuck Liddel though, a director of fun, or whatever...

I would buy a ticket to any event that either Diaz brother was involved in. These guys will get good people behind them and it will be great for the local California MMA circuit. Great stuff. Nick Diaz is the most exciting fighter in MMA.
