UFC lightweight Nate Diaz recently tweeted that he was going to attend his HS reunion, instead of fighting Gray Maynard at the TUF 18 Finale.
"Cant make it november 30th," wrote Diaz. "ive gotta high school reuinion i have to tend too..."
UFC president Dana White did not seem overly concerned.
"I'm shocked," said White sarcastically. "The Diaz Brothers are doing something crazy? I'm shocked. I heard about it yesterday. Somebody told me about it. But I haven't talked to Joe or Nate or anybody. I don't even know if it's true.
"I didn't even know Nate did this, that he tweeted it. Did he talk to Joe Silva? If he really tweeted that he's going to his high school reunion and didn't call Joe and those guys and say... I don't take Twitter for news. It's not an official statement."
