Nick Diaz No Shows UFC 158 Open Workouts, Dana White Not Impressed

UFC welterweight number one contender, Nick Diaz decided to skip today’s UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz open workouts in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, stating that the long trip coinciding with the weight cut was the reasoning behind the no show.

Ariel Helwani, posting via his Twitter account, said:

@CesarGracieBJJ just told me Nick is not coming to the workouts. “7 hour plane ride while cutting weight is tough. Decided to rest up.”

Dana White, spekaing on the Jim Rome show today, said:

“I literally just found out Nick Diaz did not show up for the open workouts today in Montreal….Let me tell you what, there is no shtick with this kid, I mean it’s – he’s just a different animal man, he’s absolutely hard to deal with.”

“If he wins, you know, we are seriously going to have to have a ‘come to Jesus meeting,’ you know what I mean? The guy is very, very hard to deal with, we’ll see what happens. I got to tell you this, though, I leave tonight for Montreal. The press conference is tomorrow, I’m excited for the press conference and I’m definitely excited for the weigh-ins ’cause, you never know what you’re going to get. Well, let me tell you what, if he does not show up tomorrow for the press conference, it is not going to be good. I don’t know what I’ll say or what I’m going to do, but I’ll tell you what — it will not be good.”
