Is it Time for UFC to Dump Diaz

With a 1 for 3 record since returning to the UFC and a 7 for 13 lifeimte UFC record (just above .500) is it not time to give Nick Diaz the pink slip? Fight record aside, he has also demonstrated that he is not able to keep up his job obligations and his pressers are nothing short of a reckless onslaught of verbal diarrhea, saying one thing one minute and the complete opposite the next.

Come on Dana, it's time to rid your organization of this virus.

no, he's one of the best at his weight, gives exciting fights and is a big draw. There's plenty of good fights for him and the UFC has no business cutting a guy like Nick Diaz if they wouldn't cut Dan Hardy.

People complain to much. Diaz is a good fighter, quit crying. Dont watch his fights, dont read/watch his interviews if you guys dont like him. His name comes from everyone's mouth, he must be doing something right. Dont matter if you love him or hate him, you talk about him.

No Diaz is still a top 5 fighter and a big name for the UFC. The UFC love to play on his bad boy character as much as he does, he's good for business.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Diaz has created more traffic in this forum than they have seen in a long long time. 75% of it is the same old complaining about him as a person. I have never heard a forum complain so much over 1 fighter in whole time I have been here. Not even close really.

It is true, everyone talks about him. How can you not? Who is more confusing a fighter (or person for that matter) than Diaz. He certainly makes for interesting conversation. Good conversations don't necessarily make good employees and that is my point - why keep a guy like Diaz in your organization. And at this point I'm sure people are going to say "because he sells fights" but I'm convinced that a UFC without Diaz would not be any worse off in the revenue column than a UFC with.

I would argue that Tito Ortiz has generated as much or more forum chatter.

Why would you drop Diaz and keep Hardy? Fighting aside Nick Diaz is one of the few entertainers in the sport. People love to hate on him because of his imagine and the way he acts. He's not the most traditional guy, but defiantly belongs in the ufc. In my opinion after the Diaz-GSP fight it actually showed how overrated GSP is. It's funny how a few years ago everybody thought GSP would beat Anderson easily, now that fight nobody isnt remotely interesting as Anderson would beat him easily.

Funny that you mention Dan Hardy because that is exactly who I liken Diaz's offensive productivity to in his fight against GSP. For all intents and purposes, he had zero offensive production. Completely dominated. He and Hardy are the two worst performances I have seen in a while against GSP - an older, slower, post injusry GSP.

Nick Diaz is printing money for ZUFFA as we speak. Figuratively... although I can't be sure he's not actually printing money right now. Point is they won't let him go.
