Yesterday the media was suprised to see that Nick Diaz missed the open workout, an event in which the media watches the athletes do a small workout, and gives them time to do interviews, etc. Diaz has had prior problems with media obligations, but is reported to be more reliable after a talk with UFC President Dana White.

Diaz missed yesterday's open work out, but put the blame on the UFC, which is responsible for booking his travel, and had him land at midnight on Tuesday:

Would of been happy to show for the fans but UFC got me here at 12 last night Gorge lives here!
