If anyone has intimate experience with the negative side of Nick Diaz’s capriciousness, it’s UFC president Dana White.
The Baldfather famously pulled Diaz from a planned title fight against UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre last year after Diaz continually failed to appear at press conferences to promote the event. Last night, Diaz no-showed the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo, where he was scheduled to face Braulio Estima in a superfight.
When approached about Diaz’s latest disappearing act by fans on Twitter, White replied that he didn’t actually know about Diaz’s planned match, but was completely unsurprised by the mercurial fighter’s behavior.
no, not shocked and I’m surprised u people are! He no showed a Las Vegas press conf to a fight he was gonna make HUGE $ and title
people are f***in nuts and braindead to be OUTRAGED and SHOCKED that Nick no showed something.
