Nick Diaz Video: “I’m Ready to Fight”
By FCF Staff
Shortly after the UFC announced yesterday that Nick Diaz would no longer fight welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre on October 29th, due to missing both press conferences this week to promote the bout, the controversial fighter released a video insisting that “I’m ready to fight.”
The video offered no insights as to why Diaz did not attend the press conferences, however, the former Strikeforce champ did apologize “for missing the beauty pageant” while he was reportedly driving back to Stockton, California. Diaz also stated in the video that he had driven to San Francisco in an effort to catch a flight to Las Vegas and attend the presser.

Carlos Condit has been named as Diaz’s replacement for the UFC 137 headliner. UFC President Dana White has not yet announced what the future holds for Diaz in terms of his relationship with Zuffa.
