I think Cesar is right in many ways. In general the fans do not care about press conferences. Dana should have punished Nick...not the fans. While GSP has beaten BJ Penn 2x, BJ is the tougher, more skilled fighter. If they only told Nick about the conference 2 to 3 days beforehand that isn't adequate time.The GSP/Condit main event isn't really the main event anymore.More attention will be focused on the Diaz/Penn fight. I have to agree with Cesar on these points. Funny part is....whoever wins the Penn vs. Diaz fight will more than likely get a shot at the winner between GSP and Condit.
Cesar sounds like a politician with the spin he's putting on this. Of coarse he'll say that BJ is the tougher fight...what else do you expect him to say after GSP said that Condit was the tougher fight for him? GSP will not get lured into Nick's fight, while BJ's pride get's the better of him at times. So, from that perspective, this is possibly the better fight for Diaz. More attention is being focused on Diaz at the moment, but that's because he just blew the opportunity of a life time. Frankly, Cesar can say anything he wants now, but anyone that saw what he said previously knows what happened. You can't polish a turd, but he's trying his damnedest.
