The youngest of the Diaz brothers took to the popular social network to not only express his displeasure that his scheduled Lightweight fight against Gray Maynard is a three three round bout -- considering the 155-pound showdown is now the new main event for The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale in Las Vegas, Nevada -- but to say he's still pondering whether or not he'll make the flight to "Sin City" to fight "The Bully."
And I thought Main events were 5 rounds wtf ? Still busy that day but ill think about it— Nathan Diaz (@NateDiaz209) November 11, 2013
What Diaz fails to realize is that converting an already agreed upon three-round fight into a five-frame affair isn't as easy as it sounds. Originally, his bout versus Maynard wasn't going to headline the FOX Sports 1 show, serving as the co-main event to a Flyweight title fight between division champion Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez.
As a result, UFC officials moved "The Mighty Mouse" vs. "Joe B-Wan Kenobi" 125-pound championship fight over to headline the new-look Fox card and bumped Diaz's fight against "The Bully" to the top of TUF 18 Finale marquee.
Nevertheless, UFC matchmakers better have someone on standby just in case Diaz opts to attend his high school reunion instead of completing his trilogy against Maynard.
Better safe than sorry.
