What I think's funny about all of this is that Nick Diaz is unintentionally marketing himself and generating even more buzz.

Misses press conferences
No shows count down broadcasts
Ignores Danas phone calls and texts

This all contributes towards his "bad boy" image and persona. It's so ironic - the less media obligations Diaz commits to,the more buzz he generates for the fight. What a genius.

Except he isn't generating media buzz because only people who check out mma message boards know about it and those people or us are gonna watch that shit anyway.

The internet is a form of media, and I'd argue that the internet may be MMA's most popular form of media. All of the threads/articles and headlines posted about Diaz on any website get's a tonne of buzz and discussion, it's just how it works with Diaz, he unintentionally markets himself.

As far as the interviews/count down shows and press conferences etc, the UFC know how to market things, it's simple. "Nick Diaz doesn't care about interviews or press conferences, MMA's bad boy just wants to get in the cage and fight". All they have to do is take that kind of angle to sell Nick Diaz. The I don't give a fck attitude/bad boy persona in a celebrity/star is always going to generate a load of interest. People love that stuff, everyone loves a good villain.

The internet is a for of media but its on mma sites that only hardcore mma fans visit. Were not talking Yahoo or ESPN.com or even AOL. Someplace where casual fans may be exposed to it.

Dana might be dumb if he pulled Diaz this close to the fight. (Hendricks is ready tho)
Diaz is dumb for pulling this crap again.

Dumb & dumber!

And Diaz has a bad boy image? I always thought his image was "whiny, spoiled, & stupid"

To be more serious, I do agree with what Toxic has been saying.

There should be a poll. Will Diaz get canned again...

Who will take his spot.

1.) Hendricks
2.) Rory
3.) Chael Sonnen

You say it contributes to his bad boy image, I say it contributes to his Immature and unprofessional image.
