At this point in time it should come as no surprise that Nick Diaz doesn’t play by the rules.
This afternoon is just the most recent example of that.
Today the UFC scheduled their typical pre-fight media call and scheduled to appear was BJ Penn, Nick Diaz, Matt Mitrione and Cheick Kongo. All fighters, except Nick Diaz, took the time out of their schedules to talk to the media and field questions about next week’s UFC 137 pay-per-view event.
With the fight just 10-days out, Nick is still up to his old antics. The next stop on the media tour will be the pre-fight press conference next Wednesday in Las Vegas. All things considered, one has to wonder if he will continue on his road of silence and missed appearances or if he will start to play the game come fight week.
With the absence of Diaz, Penn took the call over by himself and answered many questions from the media. He confirmed the UFC has not approached him about a five round fight. He stated that he thinks Nick Diaz has the best boxing in all of MMA and he had nothing but good things to say about his UFC 137 opponent.
We will have the Audio of the call hosted shortly for your listening pleasure.
