It sucks but then you have to look at it from Shaw's perspective. Diaz is probably one of his biggest draws. A draw that has a fight coming up in an Elite XC event. With his fight coming up soon anything could happen with his fight with Inoue that could screw that up. How does Shaw profit if his star gets too ****ed up to fight on one of his (EliteXC) cards?
