When Diaz sent out a Tweet stating he needed to attend his high school reunion the weekend he was supposed to fight Gray Maynard fans weren’t sure if the message was serious or a joke. Some clarification surfaced last week when Diaz’s manager making the point Diaz wants to hold off on meeting with Maynard until UFC on FOX 9 based on the event’s proximity to the fighter’s home base. If it was Nick acting out, the behavior might be a bit more understandable, but Nate’s decision to play diva is concerning. He’s always been a bit more level-headed than his big brother but trying to match-make when you’ve been handed a co-headlining slot is straight up silly.
Though the recent shift in strategy around these parts has been difficult, rest assured the importance of the 5 OZ community hasn’t been forgotten or their plethora of thought-provoking opinions either. From here on out, the 10-Point Must will make a weekly appearance where I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from the future of a few fighters to some recently-booked rumbles to the tragic death of Leandro Souza. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
