Yeah i agree that it isnt anything to be outraged about as it isnt affecting anyone but themselves. But at the same time i find it okay for someone to have a negative opinion about that. Since it sucks to see a grown man behaving like that... lets just say IF he misses the next conference and Dana for whatever reason lets him go or whatever. Il be bummed out that i wont get to see Nick in some great fights in the UFC but il also think that its deserved.

im fairly confident that nick won't let it happen twice or at the very least cesar gracie and the team will force him to go there especially since nate had to do it for the benderson title fight. The worst thing about MMA besides the TMZ parts is that the reporters always repeat the same questions and most of the are uninteresting and I have heard quite a few fighters say it annoys them to no end to continually having to deal with that.

Yeah i always think about that. I feel like if me or you or someone else on this forum was a reporter that we would be able to come up with some unique questions. Since if i pull up 5 interviews of a fighter leading up to the PPV. 90% of those questions will be the same just worded differently and same with the answers.

I know Chael actually just repeats the same answer over and over again. And has talked about how he gets the same question over and over again.

Didn't he show up against Condit for the press and BJ Penn. What gives...

This must be pissing GSP off. He might actually get a finish...or not.

Exactly, it's like when a stupid audience member at acomedy show goes derrr do the joke I like again, enough already why are you getting paid for all this crap, not to mention the constant instigating and the reporters trying to always tell dana what fight to make and what fights don't make sense and what cards suck on paper.

I wonder if reporters watch some interviews and think to themselves "Hmm maybe i shouldn't ask that question since its already been answered 100x"

You would think they would do that... but it seems they dont.

Well not calling Dana or whatever isint a big deal, but like Dana said they have tried everything they could to get Diaz to play ball. If its in their contract that missing out on promotional obligations is a basis for being cut, than that means they cut Diaz some slack. If it was a low end fighter skipping out on press conferences he would have been instantly sacked. Instead they gave Diaz a second and third chance. They even started bribing him of around 300K to show up to his media obligations. They are doing everything they can to appease and baby him to make sure he does his job. GSP even gave him the opportunity of his life to be able to jump through hoops and instantly fight the champ, and Cesar Gracie signed it on his behalf. Not talking to Dana is fine, whatever. But if Diaz decides to jeopardize his opportunity again by not showing up to the next press conference, then you seriously have to question if he really wanted the big time fights and money he has ben crying about, and secondly have to consider that Diaz is seriously ducking GSP.

What I dont like is Diaz fans somehow keep spinning this and saying that the UFC have been bullying Diaz around and have been unfair. And GSP is the one that is somehow scared of Nick Diaz, they are really deluded.

Honestly it serves Dana White right. I hope Diaz doesn't show up to the press conferences or answer Dana's calls because that will be his karma for constantly giving title shots to fighters coming off a loss when hard-working guys like Johnny Hendricks who have earned it are getting snubbed.

Dont worry, after his fight with GSP he'll go do boxing or triathlon full time.
I finally predict a stoppage by GSP, vicious GnP.

your right Nick is a regular guy and if most people with a serious job didn't answer there bosses calls then they would likely lose there job.

Nick Diaz is acts like a spoiled entitled bitch, I have a job that requires me to take drug tests so its simple I don't do drugs, I have a job that requires me to answer my bosses calls so I do and when my job requires me to be somewhere at a certain time I am there. Because that is what regular guys do, its what grown ass men do. Its part of being a grown up and taking responsibility for your life something Nick Diaz has never done. He makes excuses when he loses, he doesn't stick to his commitments. Nick Diaz is a useless waste of skin and watching GSP pound his face into utter oblivion will make me so happy.
Toxic, I respect all your posts but honestly when has Nick Diaz EVER shown to be a grown man? He's a prime example of how age can sometimes have no reflection with maturity. I wouldn't be surprised he gets sacked if he fails to show at the presser. Then we'll hear him bash GSP about how he's trying to "dodge" him yet again.
