Because he could excel elsewhere, win a title, reinvent himself and come back much more marketable than before he left- even got a free title shot against GSP, without having to face strong wrestlers who in the past used to make his life miserable while employed by the ufc.

Genius.

I think the Tibau fight was a short notice they offered to Jake, who couldn't make 170, and Cesar offered Diaz?

Yep and this is probably the most hilarious/notorious firing I've ever heard of in the UFC and I cant imagine anyone not hearing about this by now. I hate to call people n00b but uhh ya know.

Yeah, after the Riggs fiasco Dana was all like "Nick is done in the UFC.   After he fights Sherk, Neer, and Tibau he's fucking out of here."

Correct. Dana hated his attitude and his immaturity and hated that he wouldn't cooperate like his brother Nate did. I remember those old Dana interviews. Too much of a pain in the ass so he was let go. Phone Post 3.0

its ok to be a new fan of the sport imo. but many of us were following the sport and know when you are full of shit

Diaz vs riggs UFC 57 (Feb 4,2006)

Diaz vs Sherk UFC 59 (April 15,2006)

the sherk fight was 2 months after the riggs fight. he was not fired for fighting riggs at the hospital.

Diaz had a fight outsite the UFC after losing his 3rd decision in a row, beating Ray Steinbess in Stockton, May 13 2006.

Beat Neer by submission in the UFC Aug 2006, and won by TKO Tibau over Novermber of 2006.

He had 5 fights in 2006, (thank you sherdog fight finder)

as another poster mentioned above there was talk/plans for a Gracie Fighting Championship and from what I recall Cesar wanted Nick to fight in this organization. It fell apart for reasons I dont know and then he signed to fight in Pride (his favorite organization according to interviews)vs Gomi where he won with hooks to the head and a slick gogo

Nick dropped 3 decisions in a row in the UFC, fought 1 time in stockton then came back and finished Neer and Tibau in the UFC. starting with the loss to Diego through the win vs Tibau he fought 6 times in 12 months. nate Diaz was filming TUF when Diaz beat Gomi in Vegas. Nate got in the UFC after Nick left UFC on a 2 fight win streak.

those interviews with Dana were much later when Diaz was making his run in Elite XC or strikeforce

Love it. That's what happens when you try and act like a know-it-all in a forum filled with the geekiest & most knowledgeable fans there are.

Oh, delicious!
