A German website caught up with the enigmatic Nick Diaz after UFC 129. Mark Bergmann did a good job trying to get Diaz to focus. When he did, Diaz said he was bored and weary of facing opponents whose only chance to win is by landing a miracle shot.
"I'm trying to go on to bigger and better things. I don't just want to keep fighting these chumps," Diaz said. "If they want to keep having me fight these chumps, I'm not afraid to do that, but I'm not going to go ahead fighting these guys unless they're willing to pay me a lot more money."
Diaz is still focused on boxing as an option because as he says, "we're talking big money now." If he has to, he'll leave MMA.
After UFC 129, Dana White told the media that he'll be visiting Stockton, Ca. as soon as this week to speak with Diaz.
When asked if the fight was possible even with Diaz's Showtime contract in place White said he can make any fight he desires.
"I imagine I could do whatever I wanted to if I really wanted to," White said. "I don't know. We're going to have to see how this whole thing works out."
