Former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz was a no-show at Wednesday’s UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz open media workouts. The decision to not attend upset UFC president Dana White, and left Diaz to blame his employer for not attending.
“Would of been happy to show for the fans but UFC got me here at 12 last night,” Diaz posted on Twitter late Wednesday. “(Georges St-Pierre) lives here!”
Diaz and GSP will meet Saturday night for the UFC welterweight title from the Bell Centre. FightLine will have complete coverage of the entire event.
Cesar Gracie, the trainer and manager for Diaz, stated on Wednesday that his fighter was trying to cut weight and felt jet-lagged from the flight from California to Montreal.
