0

Following a hectic Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas, where Nick Diaz no-showed the UFC 183 open workouts, the Stockton native has broken his silence, offering an apology.

During the UFC 183 media day on Thursday, Diaz explained the confusion regarding his absence.

“I had to go back home for some things, so I didn’t make it here as soon as I would have liked to,” said Diaz. “So I apologize to all the fans, especially the ones that were here to see the open workout. I didn’t really put too much thought into it. I was just more focused on the fight. I’ve pulled the same card a couple of times. It’s pretty inconsiderate of me. Again, I apologize to all the fans who were anticipating a show on Wednesday.”

Diaz continued, pointing out his belief that he’s “gonna do what he’s gotta do.”

“I’m not trying to rush anything for anybody,” said Diaz. “I got a deadline, I know what that is — that’s come make what weight on Friday, come fight on Saturday. Do the best I can to put on a show for the fans, fight for the fans, come in at 100-percent for the fans. If I’m gonna do that to the best of my ability, I’m gonna do the best I can to do that. At this point in time, regardless of whatever obligations I have, for me I’m gonna have to do what I gotta do.”

Diaz concluded, “I’m gonna say it again: I apologize to Dana White, to all the UFC, everything is prepared.”
