Aw Geez, Nick Diaz’s Camp Has Even More Shit They’d Like to Complain About Following UFC 158

(To be fair to Diaz’s camp, maybe they’re trying to suggest something about the duality of man, sir.) Perhaps the third time will be the charm for Nick Diaz. Following his unanimous decision loss to Georges St. Pierre at UFC 158, Diaz’s camp first accused Georges St. Pierre’s handwraps of being shady in an effort to demonstrate that Nick Diaz was the victim of a massive conspiracy. That didn’t work, so then a video of the Canadian loophole was leaked to prove that the champion was allowed to weigh 0.9 pounds over the 170-pound weight limit. Of course, it turns out that Quebec’s athletic commission has consistently allowed this since UFC 83 in 2008, so that option isn’t nearly as scandalous as it once appeared. Now today, Diaz’s camp accused Quebec’s athletic commission of failing to properly supervise St. Pierre during his post-fight drug test. In an email sent to MMAFighting.com, Diaz camp representative Jonathan Tweedale explained the nature of the complaint they intend to file. In this complaint, not only does Tweedale make it clear that Diaz and company were not impressed by the Quebec commission’s performance, but he goes as far as to write that Nick Diaz deserves a rematch against GSP. Via MMA Fighting: The Quebec Commission’s statement is a disappointing admission that the March 16 event was not conducted under the rules applicable to a UFC title fight – or under the rules the fighters contractually agreed to, upon which rules Mr. Diaz was entitled to rely under his bout agreement, stated Jonathan Tweedale, a Diaz camp representative.
