Diaz did himself no favors annoucing this publicly.
I have to think that he has some really crappy handlers. His inner circle of advisors haven't convinced him to keep his mouth shut when necessary, they haven't convinced him to show up at obligatory events, they haven't even convinced him to manage his financial affairs to the bare minimum. Maybe they've tried and Diaz just doesn't listen to anybody, I don't know. If he ends up going to jail over it, he'll certainly be longing for the bad-ole-days when he was a well-paid fighter in the UFC.
