What's with this guy? He's been talking about how he should be the real UFC Welterweight champion, and that he could beat St. Pierre, yet now that he has the chance, he's just throwing it away. What's going on?

remember when we used to ask, "What is DW thinking by not letting Nick Diaz in the ufc?"

We just got our answer

Thank God, Diaz didnt stand a chance anyways. They should cut him and send him to Tachi Palace Fights 25, stiff.

Condit vs. GSP is a better match up more people will want to see.

This is a bummer. I know a lot of people don't like Diaz because of stunts like this, and his perceived "thuggish" image. But I don't think that's the whole story to who he is. I don't think any of us know the "real" Nick Diaz.

I am one of his biggest fans, and I just can't wrap my head around it. He's said before that if he could make his living off of triathlons, he would. He said he pretty much just fights for money, and that he wanted more of it. He also said quite some time ago, that he wanted to fight GSP. Now he's got the opportunity for huge $ and GSP and he bails.... He's had months to prep for this. This hasn't been a "three short notice title defenses in six months" experience, which he was also upset about.....

If you search the video section in this site for Nick Diaz: A day in the life, I think people will see a different Diaz than they normally see. I think Nick is not a big fan of the spotlight. I don't think he wants to be that guy in the commercials on Spike; he doesn't want to be the face of the UFC or his division. I just hope things are good with Nick personally. Maybe someday he will showcase his fighting skills again.

As a fan of nick, I'm furious.

I don't care what excuses he has.

Hope that boxing career he talked about works out.

I'm just happy they didn't choose to ask Penn if he would take it.

I'm not sure DIAZ knows the real DIAZ. I'm disappointed that this fight isn't happening. I'm not sure if its anxiety, maturity issues, or him just sticking it to the man but I know one thing, you screw with Dana he's gonna screw with you 10 fold

as much as i LOVE Condit, and want him to fight for the title sometime I wish the Diaz fight would still happen, I wanted to see it, and I wanted to see Bj Vs Condit as it would have been way more exciting. I hope Condit can beat GSP though but GSP is someone you just can't bet against.

Im pretty pissed. I love the diaz brothers, always down to fight, always exciting, gracie students, this was diaz chance to step up. He is strikeforce champ, he is on the rise, makes no sense to just dissapear, he wasnt scared, we have seen him bang with the best, this is the strangest thing I have seen in the UFC so far. Now MATT gets his ass kicked by Josh instead of an easy win and we watch maybe a better fight for condit.

All I can do is hope nothing happens to the rampage vs jones to see rampage get his belt back. I was really excited for these events coming up. SO FREAKING CONFUSED BY THIS ****.

Not a fan of the Diaz brothers so this is a good deal. I would of liked to have seem GSP and Diaz but I think Condt is just as good of a challenge so I say "LETS GET IT ON"

Shocked...big fan of Condit and Diaz. Such a blown oppurtunity, that has just got to eat you up inside, knowing that you just blew millions that could have changed your life for not only you, but for your family as well. Obviously he has some extreme anxiety issues...but the negligence he has shown in not even returning phone calls, that's just absurd. Frankly Condit is more deserving anyways when you look at the resume of both fighters.

Condit is maybe a little more dangerous--more diverse--but still has the same holes in his game that Diaz has. Poor takedown defense--but I think Condit's guard is a little more active, and he will constantly be attacking. Looking forward to this one.
