UFC President Dana White doesn't want to scrap the UFC 158 headliner of Georges St-Pierre (23-2 MMA, 17-2 UFC) vs. Nick Diaz (26-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC), but on Saturday night he said if the challenger doesn't change his ways, that may be exactly what happens...

This made me chuckle:

Good one, Dana!

Agreed now paint this picture......Nick wins the fight and is now the ww champ. How is he going to handel the pressure that will bring? He not only is a title holder but he just beat GSP the greatest WW and top 3 great of all time! Yeah no pressure for Media coverage in that story.

It is funny really. Dana gets "Diazed" once again. He'll never learn.

Nick is a mental midget.....he should just stick to swimming to Alcatraz and running marathons, full-time.......or.......start to get life lessons from Michael Bisping.

This is one of the reasons why making this fight was a bad idea. I don't see it being cancelled but Dana has put added stress on himself for a guy that has done stuff like this before and didn't earn a title shot. It's his own fault if this fight ends up getting screwed up.

This...and what Budge said. If Nick were to win, he'll have a real mess on his hands. Even if Nick ever carries through with promotional and press obligations, it's not particularly good.

In three weeks GSP will stop Diaz within four rounds, putting him on a two fight skid and Dana will realize how much of a pain he is and how expensive he is and cut him. Diaz to Bellator!

Actually, Diaz in Bellator would be pretty sweet.
He could finsh Ben Askren.

I don't know. Historically, diaz struggles against great wrestlers. That's probably the primary thing most of us here see gsp exploiting and probably why most of us have GSP picked to win. I think if Diaz were to beat Askren it's either because he clips him right out of the gate, or somehow manages to catch Askren in a sub, which I don't see happening. Askren has showed pretty good defensive jj the few times he has been put in trouble. Honestly, if the fight were to happen, call me crazy, but I'd have Askren by UD via wrestling control. I'm a big fan of both guys, I just think Askren would be a bad match. I could see diaz winning, but I don't find it to be that likely.

Yeah but Diaz could really pull it off considering he's really good off his back and is really lengthy. Diaz likes to box so much ppl tend to forget how good a grappler he is, and he is primarily a grappler.
He caught cyborg in a armbar off his back in 10 seconds, he took condit back in a matter of seconds, and condit is great on the ground.
Not to mention the crazy gogplata on Gomi...
