‘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).
Don't you be tryin to steal my scoop!
Also, what is more likely? That the UFC constantly fails to notify Nick of these dates in advance? Or that Nick (for whatever personal reason) is to blame for not showing up to these things?
How is it that no other UFC fighter has had this problem? And yet Nick always plays the "Well no one told me" card. What the fuck is his management team doing that keeps them too busy to notify him of his PR obligations? Are they too busy guarding Cesar Gracie's backdoor?
Then again, I wouldn't be shocked if Cesar Gracie was the one contacted by the UFC/Zuffa to do the recorded interview, seeing as he is his manager, and totally dropped the ball. Being a manager, trainer, and gym owner, I'm sure he's incredibly busy. I also don't see him as the type to be incredibly dependable when it comes to these types of thing, based on all of his previous comments & actions.
Another possibility, going along with it being the UFC's "fault", it could all be a BS attempt to do unusual promoting. It's possible that they could just be bullshitting, to make fans wonder if he's going to do promotion or if he's even going going to show up to the fight. Basically some Pro-wresting shit, based on the previous "mishap". When Diaz showed up in Montreal for the press conference, Dana made a point to say that the closer to the fight, the more Nick Diaz would be "typical" Nick Diaz. As he'd had a year to relax & not have to worry about fighting, he was more relaxed at that time. /removes tinfoil hat
