Maybe they should deduct the cost of the tapings from his purse.

So the next time he bitches about not getting paid enough, Dana can point to the fact he's not doing his job.

What more hilarious is that you see thick smoke flowing everywhere during the video.

Here's what White had to say:

"
Quote:
Nick Diaz would be an interesting Countdown show too if we can get him to show up for those. How about if he had a professionally, shot by professionals, the best in the business, the best at cutting and producing features on athletes. Imagine how fu*king good that would be. But first we gotta get him to show up for the fu*king interviews, then we could do it. How many did he miss? Four? Three? Three. He missed three interviews. "He showed up for the press conference. I knew something was going to go bad somewhere, you know what I mean? It's just, that's Nick. We've had a crew in Stockton, for two weeks. When he doesn't do an interview, you know how much it costs us? A sh*tload of money. We've got a fu*king crew, rolling around Stockton, not doing a fu*king thing. It costs us a lot of money, and we can't properly sell the fight or Nick Diaz."
While such actions from a fighter would typical raise some serious red flags, White was nonchalant when asked if he was worried about it.

The UFC's head honcho has repeatedly said dealing with Diaz is no walk in the park, but as long as the 29-year-old shows up to fight Georges St. Pierre for the UFC welterweight championship on March 16, 2013, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, he will be satisfied.

It seemed White's comments were the end of it, but clearly Diaz and his camp were unhappy with the way they were being portrayed in the media by White and chose to release a statement on the matter through legal representations.

Here's what Diaz's legal counsel wrote to MMAmania:

Quote:
"Dana is mistaken. There is no "crew rolling around Stockton" and Nick did not "miss" three interviews.

"In fact, several earlier dates were arranged without Nick's knowledge and with no notice to Nick. When Nick learned what had happened, I assisted him in arranging a date and time directly (Thursday, February 14). Nick arrived early and was in good spirits at that February 14 date -- the one and only date he knew about in advance. Nick requires things to be done in an organized and orderly manner. That is the kind of professional he is.

Diaz is scared of GSP, for all the talk and bravado the guy is terrified but instead of just admitting it he puts on a tough guy act and refuses to live up to his obligations just hoping the UFC will yank the fight away again. Run Diaz Run.

You wouldn't dare utter those words to Nicks face, let's be honest here.

Instead you'd be running Toxic, running.
