“I’ve been fighting for 11 years. I already did all those [contender] fights. I don’t have to take a warm-up fight. Why would I take a warm-up fight? To help somebody out? To bring them to my level? I’ve already been through all that and you still didn’t see me take an ass whipping. I don’t care, I’m talking about a title fight match-up. Bottom line, I’m the only draw here. Bottom line. We had like the third biggest [pay-per-view]. That wasn’t just because of Georges St-Pierre. And these guys aren’t doing that. People want to pay to see me fight, they want to see someone get knocked out or someone get tapped out, or they want to see me get my ass whooped like they’ve been waiting to see but they still don’t get to see.”
Sure he’s a draw, when either Diaz brother fights people tune in. But stop selling us ‘Wolf Ticket’s Nick and come back to the UFC and earn another shot at the belt!
