    I hope Nick doesn’t show just to piss all the goody-goody-I-lick-my-bosses-asshole off.

    I wonder if Diaz will show? maybe his 100k lawyer person will tell him to be there

  4. ThaGreenBandit says:

    All the bullshit aside, he’ll show up when fight night arrives, and that’s what’s most important to me. I could give a damn about the press conference

  5. 3ric says:

    I guess I, like everyone else, was thinking the same thing if Nick will show up. It almost looks like a setup. A surprise press conference !! WTF.
