MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Of Course Nick Diaz Isn’t Returning Dana White’s Phone Calls


(Props: MiddleEasyTV)

Remember when Nick Diaz was booked for the biggest fight of his career in a title shot against Georges St. Pierre, but then decided to no-show two days in a row for media events? Or when he lost an interim title bout to Carlos Condit, was offered an immediate rematch but then couldn’t do the fight because he got high?

Well, we do, and chances are Diaz does as well since he’s been sitting on the sidelines for nearly a year serving out his most recent marijuana-related drug suspension. So it surprised us to hear that Diaz, who is receiving a world title shot for the third consecutive time despite coming off of a loss and failed drug test suspension, still seems to be walking the line with the UFC and its President Dana White.

MiddleEasy recently spoke with White and asked him if he expected Diaz to make good on his pre-event promotion commitments this time around before his scheduled fight with St. Pierre at UFC 158. “He’s been sitting out so long. This is a fight that he wanted. He really wanted this fight to happen and Georges St. Pierre called him out. He’s getting it. So, yes, I expect Diaz to be there,” White said.

When asked if he had actually received such an assurance from Diaz himself, however, White said that he had not even spoken with the fighter recently despite reaching out to him. “I have not. Nick Diaz doesn’t return my calls, texts, nothing,” he said.

Nick Diaz isn’t faking this shtick, ladies and gentlemen. The Stockton Brawler really, truly, does not give damn about propriety or niceties, even with his bosses.

White didn’t seem to take Diaz’s neglect personally. In fact, he seemed to relish the opportunity to promote such a genuine anti-hero, at least as long as Diaz does his part with promotion. If he doesn’t, White said that he could very well not just missing out on another big fight but also be cut from the UFC roster.

“You don’t have to call me. You don’t have to text me. But you do have to show up to the press conference,” White said.

“I would be blown away if he did it twice…he’s not a big fan of the pre fight promotion but you have to do it. You have to do it. Whether you’re Nick Diaz, you’re Anderson Silva, whoever you are. Its in your contract. You can actually be cut. We can cut you for that.”

    Diaz can't even figure out how to use a god damn blender and you expect him to be able to function a cell phone. Do you know how many buttons, blinking lights and other thingys there are on a modern cell phone? Forget it.

    Nick Diaz never has missed a press conference his whole entire career yet when its GSP he misses it. He knows he has no chance agains GSP. Plain and simple. I couldn't be surprised if this fight never happens.

    Remember when DW hired a "sitter" to make sure Diaz didn't miss his flight or the press conference! "You don't have to call me, you don't have to text me", but we have WAYS of making do what I want. "DO YOU WANT TO BE A FUCKING FIGHTER?" I think diaz does this just to mess with DW! I love it!

    Nick's holding out for another under the table monetary press conference incentive. Dana fucked up last time, it's like caving and feeding your dog from the dinner table.

    Who cares, Diaz would get raped by GSP and I hate GSP. Anyone who thinks this would be a good fight is as retarded as the ones who want to see GSP versus Silva.

    When my boss calls I usually let the answering machine pick it up... "Yeah Hi, It's me again". Bastard always wanting me to work on Saturday... Say no to drugs! Then again, if you're talking to drugs, you're probably already on drugs.

    Constantly getting yourself pulled from the fight for disciplinary reasons is one way to make sure you never have to get your face punched in by GSP.

    I don't know if this fight will happen cm. but I hope it does. Gsp could actually lose that fight. I hate Diaz but would put that aside to watch gsp get whooped. Just like silva vs jones. I hate them both but would enjoy watching one of them get crushed.

    can you explain how pot makes someone retarded? no, you can't, because it doesn't ,and there's not a shred of real evidence for thinking that.

    actually nick diaz is a good example of how pot isn't bad for you. in the career he's chosen for himself he's one of the hardest working, most talented & successful men in the world. if pot makes you so dumb and lazy, it's weird how such a notorious stoner is so ambitious and successful. this is the problem with the flawed logic of causation correlation arguments, you really can't prove the pot in-and-of itself was responsible for causing anything, so you can't assume it was the cause of anything, whether it's a person being dumb and lazy, or a person being a successful athlete. people are pretty full of shit when they talk about pot basically, they have all these opinions and beliefs with no reasoning or evidence to support them, it's pretty irrational. people just hear shit and believe it and repeat without even knowing if it's true. like people think pot kills brain cells but studies shown it has no effect on brain cell growth, and some studies have actually shown it promotes brain cell growth. but people don't actually look into the science and real truth, they just believe made-up shit that they heard somewhere.
