Nick Diaz Missing Scheduled UFC Events, Dana White Thinking About Removing Him From UFC 158 Main Event

Once again, Nick Diaz finds himself on the wrong side of UFC president Dana White.

Diaz, who is scheduled to face Georges St-Pierre next month at UFC 158, is in danger of being removed from the planned UFC welterweight title fight for a second time after skipping out on three interviews for “UFC Primetime.”

“I’m really close,” White stated. “I don’t want to be, I don’t want to do this. It sucks. I hope we don’t come to that.”

White, talking with members of the media following the UFC 157 post-fight press conference Saturday night, added, “we spent over $50,000 in production costs and guys cruising around Stockton and not interviewing people. It’s not funny.”

It appears that Nate Diaz has also skipped out on the planned interviews. White stated this last week, as well, and a lawyer for Diaz countered that it did not happen.

If, White is forced to cancel the main event – again – Diaz could be done with the UFC. Forcing the UFC’s hand once is bad enough, but doing it a second time just makes no sense at all.
