Like I said, I don't think Nick Diaz needs promotion. And I'm sure he would make more money than your Jon Fitch or Jake Ellenbergers even if he did no PR at all.
I'm not talking about PR, like press conferences and stuff like that. I'm talking seeing Nick Diaz on a fight card.

Dana White is a promoter, just like Don King, Vince McMahon, Bob Arum and all the others.

If the NSAC doesn't allow him to fight, then he can't be promoted since Dana doesn't promote fighters on suspension. He honors them no matter where they go and if Nick doesn't have a license he can't make the money he wants to make.
