Diaz vs Sakurai Cancelled!

EliteXC will not let this fight happen in July!

Quote:
Nick Diaz will not be fighting Mach Sakurai. At least not in the July Dream card, as EliteXC has decided to not let him fight due to "contractual obligations'. Apparently EliteXC has other plans for Diaz and the July date might conflict with their plans.

'I was happpy to be fighting Sakurai and hoping to get back there to Japan where they have you fight in a ring and there seems to be more respect for the art of MMA. I hope they will still have me back soon to fight him (Sakurai) for the belt..' -Diaz GracieFighter.com!

Well, that sucks, I was looking forward to this fight, as it could've been really good. Ah well, maybe Mach can face someone like Akira Kikuchi? That'd be fun.

Yeah it does suck but its understandable! EliteXC wants Nick to be 100% focused for his fight with Noons and this fight with Sakurai would get in the way. Look what happened when EXC let Diaz fight Inoue. They wanted to cancel because it was to close to the Combbrey fight (Spelling?). They allowed it and a few weeks later he came in 9 pds heavy. I think they want to prevent that from happening when he fights Noons for the title!

Edit: Not only that but they want Nick Diaz to come into this bout with Noons 100% heathly. Can you really gaurentee that would happen while fighting a guy like Sakurai?

It is totaly understandable but its just disapointing as a fan. He def would not be 100 percent for noons and I want to be sure he whoops the skin off of noons this time.

Why am I not surprised this is called off? Mach Sakurai needs to get focused from what I've read, as he considers fighting a "job and not a passion anymore". I think he still has something to offer, but not like in his early days. Few can top his run in Shooto.

Wow that sucks. I was actually looking forward to Diaz/Mach more than Diaz/Noons. Oh well, maybe it will still happen at a later show
