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."

It would have killed Diaz.

Machida would have won a tactical yet boring 29-28 or been robbed a la Davis fight.

Which would poison Diaz as a draw going forward so it's best to keep Machida from an action fighter if you want to draw some money. Phone Post

mma interpreter -  Wonder what the "other things going on with Diaz" are... Girlfriend/other personal shit/management problems? Man, I hope everything is ok. Phone Post

I definitely has to be something very serious. On that day that Nick didn't no showed the voice after he traveled all the way to stockton, Nate posted something on his twitter about an emergency happening at the school and he was not going to be able to teach, or something to that affect. Now, I am starting to think that emergency probably was something that had to do with Nick. I hope he is ok.
