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.
He probably knew Diaz was going to no show anyway so why waste the money on a first class ticket? They already wasted $50,000 on him in the past month, Im sure if Nick was more reliable they would pay for first class, but since nick has no class then no......

This is what happens when you basically put two thugs in a reality show. The Diaz brothers are skilled thugs pure and simple and they don't like being filmed. They like to fight but I don't think they realize that in the UFC fighting includes ALOT more.

I'm pretty sure Diaz makes enough money to upgrade his own ticket. If he cared so much about that he should have gotten it as a perk in his contract.

Man, I can't be the only one getting tired of Diaz's shit?

I was pumped when he was in line to fight GSP the first time but he has this really weird sense of entitlement that really rubs me the wrong way.

I love to watch the Diaz brothers fight but I don't particularly like them because I also think they are a couple of thugs. However I do understand how they don't like the limelight. Being a very introverted person myself I can imagine how uncomfortable it would be to have all that attention. Thats part of the job though and they need to suck it up and show up and do their job.

I have come up with a solution. Since they hate interviews and press conferences so much why don't they hire Chael as their official spokesman. Then everyone would be happy well except the Chael haters...but tough shit for them

The last time Diaz had a championship fight booked DW wasted 3 First Class Tickets on Diaz who no showed on all of them. I wouldn't waste the cash on him either. How about Diaz earn himself some good faith that the money won't end up in the trashcan first?

I've been tired of it for years really. The "I don't give a f*ck attitude" but all his interviews are about how many f*cks he in fact does give. How he hates the interviews and camera's, yet the dbag does a self interview while driving from the airport and nearly kills people instead of focusing on driving. The want to get paid like everyone else, yet to not have to live up to any of the commitments.

Besides all of that though when the rebooked the fight I told myself I wouldn't b*tch about it. Nothing I say will change the fight, and after the first presser I thought we might have a drama free lead up to the fight so we can focus on how the fight will actually play out.

Well screw all of that. I am sick of Nick and I am really glad to see he hasn't completely rubbed off on Nate who is starting to show some real promise. If Nick never fights again I still won't be happy because I know he will still do interviews b*tching about everything under the sun and how it isn't fair to him. For a guy who smokes so much he sure is angry all the time.

Yes, I suppose you are right. The fact that he is back in the UFC puts it all in the spotlight more than it did when he was in Strikeforce and thus makes us all more aware of just how awkward and difficult nick Diaz really is.

If you ask me, Dana White no matter how annoyed he is at Nick Diaz will not cancel this fight. He is going to suck it up, ride it out, and see GSP vs Diaz in Montreal. If Diaz loses, he can then wash his hands of Nick. But he is not going to cancel this fight, their is too much pressure to let it go this time. Fans still want it, GSP still wants it, Dana got himself into this, you cant bail out now (unless Nick does). This just creates more hype.
