With just three days before his title fight with Georges St. Pierre, welterweight contender Nick Diaz has decided to skip the open workouts.

White smoke at the Vatican Nick Diaz doesn't show up to UFC 158 open workouts. Coincidences?

"let me tell you what, if he does not show up tomorrow for the press conference, it is not going to be good. I don't know what I'll say or what I'm going to do, but I'll tell you what -- it will not be good"


If Nick somehow suddenly becomes the best takedown defender in the welterweight division on Saturday night and finds a way to win there is no way that will change his consistent yellow cards with Dana and company. That's an ugly spot to be in on both sides. Dana really can't let one guy skip on all this stuff and risk setting any sort of precedent, and if Nick actually has some serious social anxiety issues and whatnot then it's not like something he can take a pill for and fix in short order.

Well, it's no accident that Bigg Rigg is on the same card. Nick would be wise not to squander his now second opportunity, as it could be his last.

Im with Fleek. Who cares if he didn't show! As long as he shows up to fight I couldn't care less. He's exciting to watch an never backs down.

I don't like how smarmy Cesar is getting in interviews though. That guy is shooting up my "I kinda hate them" list.

I'm not too worried by this but if he does end up blowing his chance I'll be beyond pissed.

I find it funny how Diaz calls out GSP for being pampered and having a team do his talking for him and powdering his nose.

Diaz constantly no shows things that other fighters all show up for (because they know it's their responsibility) and then his coach is constantly doing the talking for him making excuses and playing him up.

Diaz is kind of like a poor mans GSP in that sense

The slack Nick gets for being a pampered ghetto boy is as ridiculous as Jon Jones's having a new kid every 36 hours.

He should become a Monk and take a vow of silence....for awhile.

Either learn how to play the game or start running marathons full-time with teh Kenyans.

Better yet Nick, read The Voice of Reason.
