UFC president Dana White has long said that he would love to have Nick Diaz in the UFC if he would just play the promotional game just a little bit.
Well, after a couple false starts that got him pulled from the UFC 137 title challenge of Georges St-Pierre, Diaz this week has been acting on his best behavior, meeting the promotional obligations for his main event fight with BJ Penn.
“They did bring me down an hour early. I don’t know if that was a change of plans or if that was on account of me,” Diaz jested at Thursday’s UFC 137 pre-fight press conference. “I would have loved to have been at the last press conference had I been able to make it.”
