UFC 137 Special Press Conference Today at 4pm ET/1pm PT (VIDEO)

Here's the link in case anybody's interested. A hour and a half until it starts. Some tweets from Ariel:

RT @lorenzofertitta Anyone know where nick diaz is?

Re: Diaz being MIA, according to @malkikawa, @carloscondit hasn't been offered a shot against GSP. Today's presser should be interesting.
Quote:
arielhelwani Ariel Helwani
More importantly, I asked @danawhite whether Nick would be at the presser today at 4 pm ET. His response? "Tune in."
Some notes in courtesy of Budhisten and Mr. Helwani.

Quote:
Dana says Diaz missed three flights in last 24 hours. They haven't heard from him since.
Quote:
Dana talking about telling Diaz to play the game when they signed the fight. Still no word on what will happen.
Quote:
Dana: I promoted over 1600 fights. This has never happened once.
Quote:
Condit vs. Diaz on 10/29. Diaz is OUT.
Quote:
Dana: when we called Carlos to offer him this fight he started crying and had to call them back 15 minutes later.
Quote:
GSP: I showed up to do my job and Nick Diaz didn't.
Quote:
GSP says he just heard the news. "This thing means everything to me. I don't understand how someone doesn't show up for an opp. like this."
Quote:
Dana: I'd be a liar if a stood up here and said I didn't know what I was getting myself into here.
Quote:
Dana says he last talked to Nick on Monday night. Says he got "a bunch fo jibberish" and was then going on a plane.
Quote:
Dana says Diaz can't handle the pressure of a main event of this magnitude.
Quote:
Dana: people who already bought tickets who don't want to see Condit-GSP can return those tickets.
Quote:
GSP: If Condit fought Nick, I would put my money on Condit.
Quote:
Dana: If I told you what I wanted to do with BJ for this card, you would say, 'Oh my God.'
Quote:
Dana: Cesar apologizes and says, "I agree with you 100%. We're embarrassed, I've been trying to chase Nick around town. No one can find him"
Quote:
Dana: we spent 15,000 dollars in just flights in the last couple of days for Nick.
Quote:
Dana: Cesar went to Nick's house and Nick snuck out the backdoor.

Hopefully they replace Diaz with Condit, Condit is a class act, consumate professional, and respects his employers and is a better fighter than Diaz.

Wasn't too interested at first as I'm not really big on GSP and can't stand Diaz, but I'm hoping Diaz has been cut and Condit is in.

Says it will begin shortly with me

Diaz has probably been cut judging by Dana's tweet.
