When did Nick Diaz lose a titleshot twice? One was missing press conference, but what was the other time?

Potentially losing the titleshot he currently has - hypothetically

"we spent over $50,000 in production costs and guys cruising around Stockton"

He could have bought Stockton- and all of it's residents- for only a few dollars more.

Funny enough, one of my first thoughts as well.

Yeah, but I'm not sure the rent from everyone would justify the buy out. But getting serious that crew wasn't paid to do what they did. They were paid to film Diaz and he ditched them because he didn't want to deal with them.

Personally, I kind of feel that a fighter has a right to promote or not promote himself. I understand the business aspect and I'm sure the issue here isn't what I've mentioned above as most likely Diaz agreed to engage in certain pre-fight build-up nonsense. If he agreed, than he should do the job. Period. Bottom line.....lets get these two in the octagon!

I totally understand a fighter not enjoying all the promotions and public appearances.. But if you signed the contract that said you had to show up then just show up... Even if all you have to say is "f**k you guys i don't want to do these interviews" at least you showed up and spoke your mind...

I personally don't care about fight build up.. I do like to watch "post" fight conferences but coming up to the the fight i couldn't care less and i am a hardcore MMA fan...

As long as Diaz shows up to the weigh ins and to the actual fight then you will get no complaints here...

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Normally I'd agree with you. However, with the UFC practically in the mainstream pre-fight conference are necessary. He needs to show up.

...that's what he said. You ARE agreeing with him.
