Nick Diaz, TRT, UFC 157: The Morning News Roundup – 2.18.13

This weekend there was a UFC in the UK, and since it was broadcast on Fuel TV, the most salient points coming out of the event aren’t what occurred in the cage as much as what came out of Dana White’s mouth afterwards. For example, Renan Barao successfully defended his interim championship title, but all we care about is Nick Diaz being Nick Diaz. Funny how that works. Anyway, here’s your news:

• According to White, Diaz is blowing off his media commitments. Zoinks.

• White also came down hard on the TRT issue. Here’s CagePotato with a pretty solid piece on TRT usage.

• Okay, I’m feeling bad that UFC on Fuel TV 7 has gotten very little love, so here’s James Te-Huna’s walkout video.

• UFC 157 looms heavy on the horizon. Here’s MMAWeekly with a piece on main eventer Liz Carmouche.
