Nick Diaz fight probably off

Gutting news.

"Nick Diaz's DREAM bout is very much in jeopardy. Diaz was given the go ahead by EliteXC for a April 29th fight against Marcelo Garcia in Dream, however when that fight was scrapped, Dream decided to instead have Diaz fight on their May 11th show. Unfortunately no one at Dream shared this information with EliteXC and EliteXC President, Gary Shaw, only learned of the change via the internet 2 days ago.
With Diaz having been scheduled to fight in Hawaii on June 14th, Shaw finds the new May 11th date perilously close to the Showtime card and has therefore nixed Diaz's participation on the Dream card. Unless Shaw has a change of heart this fight will be a no go."

Hmmm...that sucks. Is DREAM signing anyone to extended contracts beyond the tournaments?

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

I wonder if Elite pays Diaz some sort of consolation for this? Kinda sucks when you are depending on a payday and then its gets pulled. Whats the point in having a non-exclusive contract if you arent allowed to fight elsewhere? Especially when you are in accordance with the 30 day thing.

Let's see, EliteXC has banned Affliction and is backing out on sharing one of its fighters. They are the next UFC!

I suppose it could be worse, I mean, Gary Shaw could turn the promotion into boxing by adding unnecessary weight classes and protecting marketable fighters. Oh wait...nevermind.

I think this mess-up is on DREAM's end more than it is EXC's.

But Shaw protecting Kimbo is ultra-lame!

I did think he was protecting Carano until I saw some of Kaitlin Young's fights. I don't think Carano's gonna hang in the stand-up.
