‘WTF of the Day’: Nick Diaz is No-Showing Countdown Tapings Because They Don’t Exist | | Cagepotato
According to the Nick Diaz camp, Nick hasn’t been blowing off the camera crews. Rather, Nick Diaz simply isn’t being told about the media obligations he apparently has. As Jonathan Tweedale – a lawyer with the Nick Diaz camp – told MMAWeekly.com: |
“Dana is mistaken. There is no ‘crew rolling around Stockton’ and Nick did not ‘miss’ three interviews. In fact, several earlier dates were arranged without Nick’s knowledge and with no notice to Nick. When Nick learned what had happened, I assisted him in arranging a date and time directly (Thursday, Feb. 14). Nick arrived early and was in good spirits at that Feb. 14 date – the one and only date he knew about in advance. Nick requires things to be done in an organized and orderly manner. That is the kind of professional he is.”
Who knows with Diaz, seems his typical excuse but almost makes me wonder if the UFC is actually just trying to play up the 'bad boy' image to hype the fight. The more Diaz supposedly pulls this kind of shit the more certain mma fans want to see him lose. What does Dana / UFC gain from telling the media these kinds of things? (true or not).
