NICK DIAZ

“We had staff that saw him yesterday in the airport and he elected to not get on the flight. His bags did arrive. Again, I can’t speak to why Nick decided not to get on the flight, but we’re moving on as if the fight is happening Saturday. We’re very confident he’s going to be here today.”

“We’re moving forward. The fight is happening. We feel pretty confident he’s going to get here today.”
