Nick Diaz no shows Brazilian jiu-jitsu superfight: Braulio Estima 'doesn't understand why he'd run away'
There are three things in life that are certain: 1) Death, 2) Taxes, and 3) If left to his own devices, Nick Diaz is probably not going to show up to whatever engagement he may have at any given time.
Such was the case last night (Sat., May 12, 2012) at the Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif., when Diaz failed to shows up for his planned Brazilian jiu-jitsu superfight against Braulio Estima.
And, naturally, Estima is pissed off about it:
"I know he's supposed to be the big MMA bad guy and he's all tough, he's supposed to be showbiz, but what is this? When you make an announcement that you're going to fight for charity and you don't show up, what the hell is going on? It's not about showbiz. It's about being a good person. I don't know what is going on. ... I'm a professional athlete.... [via MMAmania]
