• Nick Diaz is removed from UFC 137 for missing press conference, Carlos Condit steps in to face GSP!

  • Today has been pretty crazy to say the least. The main event set to take place between Nick Diaz and Georges St-Pierre for the UFC Welterweight title at UFC 137 has taken a major blow. It has been revealed that Nick Diaz who would have been challenging for the title has failed to turn up to press events and conferences that are obviously essential elements to promoting the fight. During a press conference today in which Nick Diaz was missing, Dana White released the news that Nick has been removed from the event due to not turning up and that highly ranked contender Carlos Condit would replace him on October 29th 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Events Centre in Las Vegas. Nick Diaz has never really been know for his reliability but some of the things revealed today were quite shocking. We heard about everything from missing press conferences to sneaking out of his managers back door to avoid flights. It is all very bizarre to be honest. I am not sure anyone really knows what is going through Nick Diaz’s head at the moment as he is currently missing in action and will not return Dana White’s calls. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens to Nick but Dana White has made it clear that Diaz being released is most definitely an option.


    Thanks guys,
