The new trend for Nick Diaz is to take a trip to the hospital after every fight. After fighting Mike Aina and squeaking by on points, he ended up in the hospital with a brutal case of staph. This time he’s in to have scar tissue removed from around his eyes:
“He didn’t get hit with anything hard,” Cope said. “It’s just that he’s got some gnarly cuts. There were a couple of fights [in his past] where he got cut and then band aided it, you know – didn’t get any good stitches, so he’s got a lot of scar tissue. You breathe on the guy, and he gets cut.”
Hopefully this helps out and Nick’s bad luck is at an end because one more questionable fight and he’ll be back where he was after washing out of the UFC … considered a skilled fighter who just can’t seem to get’r’done in the ring consistently.
