Nick Diaz has put himself in the midst of a whirlwind of controversy since defecting from Strikeforce for the riches of the UFC. Originally slated to face Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title at Saturday’s UFC 137 event at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Diaz was bumped down to the co-main event to face BJ Penn after he missed some crucial promotional requirements. But after GSP went down to injury, Penn and Diaz find themselves slotted into the main event role.
Diaz didn’t miss his obligations on Wednesday, holding court before a throng of journalists at The Ultimate Fighter training center.
He talked about everything from the pending fight with Penn to his brother to his triathlon competitions to whether or not this could be his last fight and if he’s satisfied with his career if it is.
“The last fight could have been my last fight. I feel like that every fight.”
