It seems like the trials and tribulations never end for Jay Hieron. The guy has had two different organizations pull fights out from under him, then he signs with Strikeforce in order to get a title shot against Nick Diaz, which he now can’t get due to Diaz’s, well, I’ll paraphrase Hieron here and call it "[monkeying] around."
Talking to Steve Cofield, you can hear the anger and frustration in Hieron’s voice as he wonders why Diaz can’t get off the weed and forget about this boxing pipe dream long enough to do the only feasible fight that makes sense at this point. Honestly, what is Diaz doing these days? I realize he’s probably on his own program, but how long can you do bong rips and watch reruns of "227" before you wake up one afternoon and realize that your best years are slipping away and you’re not making the most of them?
If anybody has suffered enough in this business, it’s Hieron. For Pete’s sake, Diaz, give the boy the fight. You’ve got the rest of your life to get high and [monkey] around.
