White: Machida vs. Diaz was a bad idea.
Early last week Dana White commented to the media that the UFC had just offered a return bout for Nick Diaz: a bout with Lyoto Machida. This was a bout not on anyone’s radar, so it took a lot of people by surprise. However this weekend White commented that the bout won’t happen and was just a bad idea:
“Diaz didn’t turn it down. There’s other things going on with Diaz. There’s other things going on with Diaz. That was a bad idea, the Diaz-Machida thing was. I’ll throw Joe Silva under the bus again. That was Joe Silva’s idea. It was a bad idea.”
