    Default Dana White: “If (Nick Diaz) Wants to Fight, We’ll Get Him a Fight”

    Dana White: "If (Nick Diaz) Wants to Fight, We'll Get Him a Fight" | MMAWeekly.com
    Diaz’s legal representation, Jonathan Tweedale, stated earlier this month that if Diaz doesn’t get a rematch with St-Pierre or a fight against Silva, he will likely remain retired.

    But if Diaz decides that he does want to continue his fighting career, he still has a place in the UFC.

    “If he wants to fight, we’ll get him a fight,” said UFC president Dana White on Thursday.

    Diaz attended The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale on April 13, but he and White didn’t talk.

    At the end of the St. Pierre/Diaz press conference. Diaz made it sound like he wasn't gonna retire... but might only want GSP.. which he won't get. He'll need to fight to get back into title contention again, which i'm not sure we'll want to do or not.

    I can't think of a fight that warrants less of a rematch than a GSP/Diaz II.

    I can think of several...for instance-any fight that had a decisive finish.

    Wait, did Diaz somehow show anything in the GSP fight to make it INdecisive? He has no hope in a rematch with GSP and was completely nullified. He didn't get finished, but he didn't make a case to get an immediate rematch, one down the line doesn't even feel competitive at this point even if Nick works his way back up.

    All Diaz will do is complain that he wasn't finished and turtle while rolling for kneebars that aren't there, just giving his back up. Pass. He's an entitled and deluded child with a severe persecution complex.

    GSP was tired and checking the clock at the end, and did very little damage. GSP couldn't take his back, couldn't pass guard. GSP was on top though so he obviously coasted in the scoring criteria department but as far as damage it wasn't decisive.

    So there is a very large amount of fights that I would pass on a rematch on before Diaz-GSP. I would kind of rather see Diaz fight someone who isn't going to ride the points sysem, though, and see him fight somebody who is actually going to come to try and to damage and finish a fight.

    Agreed but point fighting is how GSP roles these days. I can't recall the last time he has even finished an opponent.

    I mostly disagree..


    You sound similar to Diaz the way you use the rules, point system and "what the other guy only did" to discredit his win.

    You talk about what Gsp "couldn't do". you talk about the rules and points system.

    let's talk about what Diaz couldn't do. He couldn't beat Gsp in striking or on the ground. It's that simple. Diaz had NOTHING on Gsp.

    Now in DIaz fashion you mention rules. let's talk about rules. If There wwre no elbows so diaz could have his separation to attempt subs so be it. let's throw in knees to head of a downed opponent...Gsp have planted them almost at will to Diazs skull. would Diaz have subbed Gsp....I'm not so sure.

    That being said..The rules Favour Gsp the way it is. But if you want to change these rules and points to make it an actual street fight in a back alley...we can go back to fish hooks, eye gouging and groin shots. You talk about damage...the fight can't truly on be measured in damage alone. If that's the case...back to the old rules.

    Now as for his legal representaion saying it's Silva, Gsp or he'll retire..... Diaz....say hello to Freedom 209. This guy Is going to go through his ENTIRE CAREER without beating a wrestler and he is making demands? This can carry on to His brothers mentality as well. Have either of the Diaz brothers ever beaten a wrestler? EVER? i'll do some research....I bet the number is ZERO!


    He wants the 185 kingpin....give him Chael at 185.
