They should get rid of him. They don't need him to make money.

Try to offer more insight and explanation than just opinions you try to pass off as fact.
Fact: The average PPV draw is 474K

Fact Diaz fount in UFC 44,47,49,51,53,57,59,62,65,137,143, & 158

Fact: PPV pays outs:

44,47,47,49,51,53 - unknown
57 - 400K (Couture/Liddell)
59 - 425K (Ortiz/Griffin)
62 - 500K (Liddell/Sobral)
65 - 500K (Hughes/GSP II)
137 - 280K (Penn/Diaz)
143 - 400K (Condit/Diaz)
158 - 800K (GSP/Diaz)

Average payout for UFC PPVs nick fought in is 472K

472K is less than the average of 474K.

So Nick Diaz, at best, even if you give him full credit for drawing the full 800K in 158 and believe that GSP (who draws that number even when he fights a can) drew no one, still draws a bit less than average ... where 'average' = the average of what all PPVs since UFC 57 (the earliest data I could find, but unless he was drawing 500K for the PPVs before 57, which is highly unlikely, then I expect his average is far less, but I don't think it would be fair to go aback that far.)

Come on Dana, it's time to rid your organization of this virus.
I was agreeing with you when I was reading the argument about the record.

But then you went on with the "missing the press conference" part of your argument and it kinda puts your bias in light.

agreed on the record part, the other part should not be an issue. Dana said himself, there are other fighters who are much worse than nick for that PR part of the job

I hear what your saying. I get it. Really, the point I was making is that not only is his record below average but he is also not a good employee. And if that puts my "bias in light" then I accomplished what I was trying to do. Make no mistake about it, I don't like Diaz and you can see that in every post I've made about the guy.

He's not even a great fighter, he's a bully who can't handle his shit when his opponent won't fall into his one dimensional game plan.
