    wat a dumb ass! dont bite the hand that feeds u…. Diaz is a great fighter but he got to big headed and now he looks like a idiot..lmao! GSP woulda put a azz whipping on him anyway…

    Wow dana really kissing GSP’s ass. A true professional, so the whole vaseline was being professional. Than he says that gsp only wants big fights, yeah fights he knows he can outpoint his opponent. I would have love for anderson to call dana and say I will drop to WW and fight gsp.

    • ADAM says:

      Don’t be a hater homie. How many of GSP’s last few opponents have been finished?
      The most recent is Josh Koscheck who lost to Paulo Thiago by TKO (Punches) at UFC 95 – 2/21/2009 1 3:29. Thats it, Jake sheilds was back in 2000, Hardy was finished after the GSP fight. who else is there, B.J penn, Jon Fitch, Matt Serra and Thiago Alves. appreciate the sport for what it is, the technical mastery, the determination, the set ups the game plans. No way anderson can drop to 170 in a few weeks and fight well. Yeah the vaseline thing was a mistake, and it happened only once. and it was Phil Nurse who fucked up, not gsp. get ur facts straight brotha, and dont b a hater homie

    For BJ, it would be awesome if UFC 137 could be salvaged by pitting a match-up between Nick Diaz vs. BJ Penn as the co-main event.

    The pressure would be off of Nick to promote a main event and would create an awesome No. 1 contender match for the Welterweight title.

    Petition for it BJ :)

    • The Brave Reply says:

      BJ and Nick are friends and Bj has said the only Cesar Gracie student he would fight is Shields.

      • S. Xavier says:

        It wouldn’t be the first time friends fought. Besides, fighting a friend never seem to have bothered BJ in the past, take for example Joe Lauzon (when BJ reigned over the lightweight division, he about to fight Sherk, Lauzon to meet Florian), BJ said:

        “If Joe does win, and I win the belt, there’s a good chance that we may have to fight each other …. He would have to fight me if he wants to be the champion. I want him to realize his dreams; I would make him fight me.”

        If it’s okay to fight Joe, why not Nick? A fan may ask :)

  4. Diego says:

    BJ please put a video update i wanna hear what u think about this situation and about Dana, cuz i think its fucked up what he did. on the other hand if condit wins i think you should get the first tittle shot at condit. hope it all works out for you.

  5. WarProdigy says:

    Cerrone vs BJ at 155! I know Cerrone already had a fight lined up for that night but so did BJ!!!

  6. jon says:

    god gsp is such a tool. he just doesn’t get it. nick diaz is a fighter. he doesn’t play these stupid games. he’s not an athlete…he’s not a role model…he’s a fucking fighter. something georges will never be. nick was going to destroy gsp and give some credibility to the belt. and now it’s off because of one stupid press conference? it’s unbelievable. i’m happy for carlos, but he’s not nick diaz. i’m not sure he’s ready for this yet. hopefully georges will take him lightly and carlos will knock him out. of course this kind of screws bj…but i spoke with jake sheilds a few mins ago and he mentioned that dana is trying to put him against bj…so we’ll see if that will works out. either way, i’m sure it will still be a great night of fights, but i was really looking forward to hearing gsp and all his bandwagon-jumping fans clamoring for excuses as to why this skinny kid from stockton just destroyed him and walked away with the belt.

    • Rusk says:

      “these games” is what their calling doing press and being professional now a days? nick obviously doesn’t have what it takes to be a professional athlete on the scale of the UFC

    • Justa Thought says:

      If Nick Diaz is a fighter nothing about Dana or Money or anything else should be an excuse not to fight GSP. GSP was willing to fight him… I like watching Nick Diaz fight so this sucks, but Nick Diaz destroy GSP? I highly doubt that. Nick Diaz is CREDIBILITY to the belt…? GSP honors his contract but Georges doesn’t “get it”…? Sorry your so mad about this.

  7. Ly-er_Ly-er says:

    Regarding BJ and his fight- DW: “Yeah I’m working on that now, if I told you what I want to do with that fight, you guys would be like oh my god your nuts. So we’ll see what happens!” It better be freaken good, seriously gotta stop w/ the BS man!!!

    • Tom Ryan says:

      I wanna know specifically who Dana has in mind.

    • Rusk says:

      ……think he’ll drop kos and do another huges vs bj?

      • Tom Ryan says:

        Has anyone thought maybe Dana meant a Middleweight? Like (for example) pulling Mark Munoz to have Penn vs Leben at UFC 138. That’s “oh my god you’re nuts”. I really really wanna know who Dana meant when he said that, cuz you know he had someone specific in mind.

        • Rusk says:

          o_0 penn v leben would be crazy…maybe just crazy enough to work!!!

        • Ly-er_Ly-er says:

          Ok ok, what if….they switch Koscheck on to fight BJ and replace him w/ Fitch to fight Hughes! Hughes did twitter that he’ll fight either Koscheck or Fitch! There u go!!! Boo-yah got it!!! LOL

        • mmaislandjunkie says:

          yea but i have a feeling its gona be bj fitch 2 and to be honest im not interested in that fight simply because fitch is the most boring fighter in mma.

  8. Jaime says:

    WTF? Can someone please tell me why the GSP vs Diaz is cancelled!

  9. Mike Diaz says:

    Dana better have a trump card for BJ, no way the PRODIGY gets left holding the bag on the level he’s on…….now itll be a humpfest for sure on October 29th……I hope Condum Condit KO’s Grease S P’s head back to British Columbia! PENN NATION!!!!!!!

  10. Chris says:

    I want BJ-Guillard at 155. Shut Melvin up a bit.

  11. Robert Mendoza says:

    Dana sucks. Diaz is the only one left at WW for GSP. Condit is good but Diaz is better hands down. I definately wont be buying this ppv.

  12. iStone247 says:

    super bummed… its a hard lesson to learn, dana white doesn’t fuck around. big fan of nick and i hope he doesn’t get cut, but if he did i wouldn’t be mad at the ufc for doing it. i gotta add, i watch the UFC for the fights, not the press conferences
