He won't just lose his title shot if it happens again he will lose his job.

I highly doubt Dana further waters down UFC 158 from what it originally was, but Nick had better smarten up. I honestly can't understand his being so daft. Now, having said that, Nick and his attorney have told a completely different story, so who knows what's what.

This is what he gets for putting Diaz in a main event. Seriously. He showed last time that he can't be trusted, so why think differently this time? AND he's coming off of a loss and hasn't fought in a year.

The only reason this fight is likley still happening is because its the fight GSP wants. Diaz never earned a shot so punishing him is one thing but they are taking the fight away that Georges wants.

Diaz is simply scared I am convinced its true because in the UFC he has met his media obligations except when it involves fighting GSP. Diaz doesn't want the fight and is trying to play it off as some anti establishment bullshit to save face.

He won't scrap the bout at this point in time. I think this is just Dana playing up the "badboy diaz" image to generate more buzz.

It would really suck to switch from a non stop but relatively light hitting BJJ fighter to a one punch killing machine with great wrestling like Hendricks though

The media obligation for GSP vs any other person he has fought is probably a night and day difference. It's noted he doesn't like the spot light. Maybe this is his way of dealing with the pressure,etc of the magnitude of this fight. We all expected this BS from nick, but everybody knows he will show up to fight.

How do you know he will show up to fight? If the media appearances are to much for him how do you know he won't have a mental breakdown on fight day? It's only gonna get worse from here on towards the fight and he is already melting down.
