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

Well just state the obvious. Of course if Nick Diaz isn't fighting he isn't earning money.

We are talking about exactly that. Overeem being promoted on suspension. And Diaz not being promoted on suspension.

We are talking about promomotion. Maybe I'm not following you here, but not sure what you are implying.
