Just imagine what would happen in this place if UFC 158 got cancelled. Think about it. Nick gets pulled from the card, GSP refuses to fight Hendricks on short notice, Chael steps up but GSP refuses to fight him as well.

JBJ vs GSP, naturally.

Diaz deserves to be pulled from the fight right now or as late as after the first prelim starts and join the UFC farewell boat that just departed taking fighters way more respectiful and professional than him.
The difference between the education level in the 1st and 3rd worlds lies in law enforcement. You don't impose the rules, you don't punish, you don't apply fines that's what you get. A rogue, arrogant element, bypassing real athletes and carrying along a legion of fans that forgot the meaning of "professional sport".
Funny some think adding lower weight classes or women to the event are the real bad moves to the business, but keeping a low life scum like Diaz around, spreading his venon is a must.

Funny how everyone rants about DW's being full of hot air, except when he's talking about Nick Diaz.

As was said, he's selling the fight. And you're all buying into it.

I think Dana cant wait to find a legit reason to take this fight from Diaz. It would be a disaster for the UFC if Diaz managed to win the title. He could do whatever he wants at that point...no way the UFC would get rid of a title holder.

Wouldn't surprise me to see Diaz get cut if he loses.

Pfffft. Won't happen, and I'll bet you 500k credits right now that it doesn't. Diaz is a draw. Not the biggest draw by far, but he draws a particular demographic. Dana didn't want to let him go in the first place and won't let it happen again over a loss to the best WW in the UFC, even if he is a pain in the ass sometimes.

The only thing I'm buying into is Carlos Condit whipping Johny Hendricks' ass all over Montreal. I could care less for Frenchy vs Mr. Anxiety

Honestly, I bet that everyone posting in this thread was going to watch the fight regardless of any of this crap.

As for hot air, I can't decide who has more - Dana or Nick.

Thoughts On The Diaz & DW Situation

It's hard as a fan not knowing all of the information...

DW was on Rogan's podcast saying that he's not going to pay for Diaz to fly around first class?

C'mon man.

This guy is one of your TOP stars fighting for the WW Championship of the world. If I saw Nick Diaz flying coach when he's about to fight for the strap I would assume the UFC isn't doing very well.

This is just my opinion but this is a MAIN event fighter! This is going to be a HUGE draw. Fly him around in first class dagonnit! Then maybe he'll work a little harder for you?

Diaz has put in his time. 10 years since his UFC debut.
