Problem for Diaz is that he is operating on a short rope because of his habit of ****ing the UFC over due to being a moron. He's just a ****py employee, they can't rely on him for ANYTHING. He can't be a coach on TUF, and he can't be a fighter they can use as a face of the company. You can't organize anything
around Diaz without constantly stressing that he's going to suddenly **** it up at any time for no reason. That's OK while he's winning, but once he gets a bad loss and fan interest in him dies down, he quickly becomes very expendable. There are plenty of guys who will fight ***** out and
show up at the press conferences.
