And I think Dana and the UFC know this and he gets a slight pass for it.

Although your right, if the performances started tailoring off they would get tired of him real quick.
Yeah his personality is a big part of his fan appeal. But he takes it SO far, he's SO sullen and unco-operative that he makes it way more difficult for himself than it needs to be.

They can't just give him a free pass either, because other fighters will see it. Many fighters aren't natural attention whores, and the UFC won't want to set a precedent where other fighters can point to him and say "But Diaz doesn't have to do this or this or this, why should I? I hate press conferences too you know."
