With Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler booked for a shot at the UFC’s newly vacated welterweight title, UFC President Dana White on Saturday said he thought he had another high-profile fight booked for UFC 171.

Then Nick Diaz turned it down.

White said he offered Diaz (26-9 MMA, 7-6 UFC) a fight against Carlos Condit (29-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) on Saturday night at UFC on FOX 9, but Diaz passed on it. White said the offer came in person with Diaz cageside for the fight card, which took place in Sacramento.

I"m a big fan of Nick Diaz's fighting style but Jesus Christ I wish Dana would just give up on him. He obviously doesn't want to be in the UFC unless it's on his terms (title fights only). Again, Dana just needs to cut ties with him.

He isn't, he just thinks he should be fighting for the title (hendricks lawler winner).

if Lawler somehow beats Hendricks, Diaz should fight him for the title

I want Nick Diaz to fight again too but if he thinks he deserves a Title shot then he should never fight again.

He'll come see Dana when he needs some money again.

Diaz will be the UFC Welter Weight Champion by the end of 2014.

I sure hope not...he wouldn't allow a wrestling based fighter to be a contender, he wouldn't allow elbows on the ground, he would only fight on cards where he wants, etc...
No one says they don't like watching Diaz fight, everyone says they don't like dealing with him as a person. Too much bullshit.

He lost two title fights in a row. He's done.

If Brown is out.

Should be Condit vs McDonald rematch

Have Damien maia rematch Kim
Or face Woodley at 170 Vegas

I'd love to see a rematch w/ Rory but I say give Carlos, Jake Shields. Shields beat him once at Rumble on the Rock back in 06. Shields beat Maia and Woodley.

I have to disagree. Hendricks, Condit and maybe Lawler Mk 2 are better than Diaz.

Its definitely not that far fetched especially if Robbie beats Johnny! I know Condits still in there. Diaz should be back in May he said. Id love to see him stop Woodley!

I agree with this.

Champions are in a unique position as not only great fighters, but representatives of the sport.

No one wants Nick Diaz to be a high profile representative of the sport, or at least they shouldn't.
