As if this scenario couldn't get any more bizarre.

During the UFC 137 press conference today (Sept. 7), Dana White announced that Nick Diaz is no longer going to fight Georges St. Pierre in the main event on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

That's because Diaz skipped town and decided not to attend the press conference today, no different than he failed to do in Canada recently. So what exactly happened to him and where the heck is he?

As it turns out, nobody knows, not even his family or his manager.

In fact, during the press conference today, White received a call from Cesar Gracie, Diaz's manager, which he took while he was on stage in front of the media. After a brief conversation, here's the information he relayed:

"I apologize and I agree with what you're doing 100-percent. We're embarrassed. I've been trying to chase Nick around town. Nobody can find him."

Adding to this even further is the fact that White revealed later in the presser that Gracie, at one point, had Diaz in his house and the former Strikeforce champion literally snuck out the back door.

Yikes.

An MMA all points bulletin is out on Nick Diaz, folks. Last known location: Stockton, California. If you find him, please contact UFC.

Jokes aside, let's hope Diaz is okay and stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more as this story develops.
