Dana White on Nick Diaz: He Shows Up for Fights, but He Has to do the Promotion Too


mqdefault Nick Diaz is a different kind of character.

As a fighter, he’s one of the most polarizing figures in the sport. People love to love him, or love to hate him, there’s not a lot of gray area in between.

UFC president Dana White could easily be the person to find himself on both ends of the spectrum with Diaz. He loves the way Diaz fights, but hates pulling teeth to get him to fulfill the business obligations that come along with it.

White has had trouble getting him to show up for promotional obligations and press conferences in the past, particularly when he was slated to face the same man he is now supposed to fight at UFC 158 in Montreal… Georges St-Pierre.

White pulled the fight out from under Diaz when he blew off his obligations in the past and he’s willing to do it again.

“Nick Diaz shows up for fights… he fights his ass off. He’s not a big fan of pre-fight promotion, but you have to do it. It’s in your contract; we can cut you for that.

“I’ve proved that you will be punished if you don’t show up for those things.”
