Nick Diaz Responds to UFC 137 Removal with a YouTube Video


While the dust was settling from the UFC 137 press conference that saw Nick Diaz get removed from the night’s main event against Georges St. Pierre and Dana White field a phone call from Cesar Gracie, Diaz was MIA. The rebellious fighter was actually driving from San Francisco to his hometown of Stockton and felt like using that time to make a YouTube video.

“All I know is that I’m ready to fight, sorry I didn’t make it to the beauty pageant,” Diaz says in the video.

Obviously Diaz wanted no part of “playing the game” and being a part of what he referred to as the beauty pageant but that’s what he signed up for and he paid the price. A price that even his long time coach Cesar Gracie thinks is justified after a fighter he considers part of the family just lost the biggest opportunity of his life because he’s a rebel.
