Nick Diaz back to his old tricks
The superfight was setup as a charity event and Diaz had stated initially that he would donate his purse to a charity. The super fight had been promoted for and sold on pay-per-view as well at around $10.
This is not the first time Nick Diaz is a no show, in fact its what hes known for. Diaz had been scheduled to face off against welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre back in 2011 but decided not to show at a few press conferences in the build up to the event. The UFC had secured a deal to get Diaz from Strikeforce but the move meant he had to vacate his welterweight title that he had defended for the California based promotion.
But after his no show to promote his fight with St. Pierre Dana White removed him from the then scheduled main event at UFC 137 and replaced him with Carlos Condit, and Diaz ended up facing off against B.J. Penn.
Diaz is currently is currently facing a suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission after he tested positive for Marijuana metabolites after his Interim Welterweight championship fight with Carlos Condit at UFC 143.
Nick Diaz is one of, if not the best welterweight in all of MMA but he needs to handle his outside of the cage antics before they cost him more than a belt. His behavior right now is slowly tarnishing his reputation, it could really hurt his career and his legacy.
