Dana White: Nick Diaz turned down rematch with Carlos Condit for UFC 171
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.

Dana White 'very, very embarrassed' by Cody McKenzie's fight attire
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- When Cody McKenzie showed up for his UFC on FOX 9 fight against Sam Stout wearing basketball shorts, his boss was not amused. But while Dana White wasn't happy with McKenzie's odd choice of attire, he was really made at his crew for letting it happen. "What that was, was UFC amateur hour," said White. "We have a guy backstage who policies that stuff." Making matters worse is that McKenzie, who apparently forgot to bring his fight shorts to Sleep Train Arena and needed to buy the shorts at a nearby sporting goods store, entered the Octagon with the price tag still attached.

George St-Pierre sacrificed belt to breathe easy again
Georges St-Pierre is at least temporarily walking away from the fight game, and just exactly where he’s going nobody truly knows. St-Pierre came to the idea well before his narrow victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, and it felt like a foregone conclusion several weeks later in Quebec City, where he shrugged the world off his shoulders by vacating his belt just before a sponsorship appearance at an area mall.

Surging Cub Swanson Wants A Crack At Conor McGregor – UFC Brass Says It’s “Unlikely”
Cub Swanson used to be just another brawler. Seemingly cut from the same cloth as Lenard Garcia, both fighters were known for always being ready for a scrap… ready to throw down in the middle of that WEC cage… ready to throw caution to the wind, entertaining the masses like the gladiators of ancient Rome. Either they would win in an amazing, heart-stopping fashion, or they would go out on their shield. That kind of fighting mentality is great for gathering fans. Not so good for title runs. In 2010, both fighters were trading wins and losses. Cub always seemed to use his grit and guts to position himself for a chance at stardom, only to lose against the top dogs of the WEC, like Mendes, and Aldo. Garcia? He would do the same, with losses against Mark Hominick and Chan Sung Jung. It seemed like they were both destined for gatekeeper status at best, always being relied upon for a good brawl, but not much else. But then something changed.
