Nick Diaz: On His Best Behavior (UFC 137 video)

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.”
