Way to blow your last shot on the big stage, Diaz. Hope the weed is worth it.

Caesar isn't happy.

I'm not happy. In a year where I was denied Lytle/Condit, Penn/Fitch 2, and Hughes/Sanchez the last thing I wanted was to see this fight fall apart.

Diaz reacts: { Embedded! - Ed. }

My response: What a maroon. I hate hate hate cameras and yet I'll sit through a nine hour press conference for a thousandth of what Diaz was getting for that fight.

It's especially hilarious given Diaz's history over the past few years.

He claimed the UFC wouldn't re-sign him because they were afraid of him beating their posterboys. After a rematch with Joe Riggs fell through, Strikeforce signed a fight between Diaz and Jay Hieron to determine their first-ever welterweight champion--a fight Diaz was unhappy with, feeling that Hieron was insufficiently popular and thus beneath him. He didn't bother to stop smoking in time to pass pre-fight medicals, so he scrubbed himself out of the fight, and Hieron was left in the cold. After the Nashville brawl in which he and the rest of Cesar Gracie attacked Mayhem Miller, Mayhem--well-known middleweight and host of a distressingly popular MTV program--chased him for a fight, which Diaz turned down due to being in an entirely separate weight class despite having fought at said weight for multiple fights within Strikeforce. All throughout, he regularly claimed that GSP was scared to fight him, that the UFC didn't want him, and that he was too good for MMA, given its unwillingness to give him a huge payday. In response, Dana White repeatedly states to the media that Diaz would have a great future in the UFC if he could learn to act with a modicum of professionalism.

Then he gets his shot at GSP, a title unification bout with one of the biggest draws in the history of the sport--the fight he's always wanted for the money he's always demanded--and he tosses it out on its ear so as to not have to attend a press conference at which his boss had already given him license to sit quietly and not answer questions.

(It's probably coincidental that all three are the same type of wrestlers that gave Diaz fits in the UFC.)

And when the man finally speaks, it's...to say that it's everyone else's fault, he doesn't get what people are pissed about and it's probably just because he was going to kick GSP's ass and the UFC wouldn't want that.

Good job, Nick. I hope you have a very economically viable future in BAMMA and SHARK Fights.

Nick's a douche. Fun fighter to watch, but a complete douche. Behaviour like this is why he has to "drive a fucking Honda".

Indeed. It's being held down by competent wrestlers - not being held down by The Man - that really bothers Diaz. If he thinks the UFC needs him he grossly overestimates his own importance.

Again. Douche.

Dana White announced on his Twitter that Diaz is fighting Penn at UFC 137.

There are no words.

I suspect Penn will win that fight easily, since I'm of the mind that Nick Diaz is highly, highly overrated. BUT, if Diaz did happen to win....what then? Does Diaz earn another title bout and we do this dance all over again?

Well we're about to see whether Diaz's boxing is as good as his diehards insist it is.

I'd rather see Fitch/Kos/Story/Ellenberger/Pierce/Brennaman/Hughes grind a brutal top control decision out on him for fucking up the fight with GSP, but Gracie Prodigy VS Gracie Prodigy will be fun enough.

I'm stunned Dana didn't give him Kos or Fitch as an FU to Diaz for fucking up the GSP fight. It's not like he's been shy to put people in unfavourable matches for dickish behaviour in the past.

It's pretty damn good by MMA standards, but he's dreaming if he thinks fighting Jeff Lacy under Marquess of Queensberry rules would've ended well for him. BJ's wrestling doesn't entirely suck though so I can't see him be unwilling or unable to take the fight to the ground if need be.

Kos just got tapped as a replacement for Diego in the fight against Hughes, and I think Dana prefers to delay as much as possible before giving Fitch high-profile fights.

As for this whole Diaz debacle now: if I had the gif of Jerry Seinfeld on Curb Your Enthusiasm raising his hands in confused, disgusted submission and walking out of the theater, I'd post it.
