Last week we mentioned that Robbie Lawler vs Mayhem Miller was off because Mayhem is probably going to be serving out a suspension for his part in the Strikeforce brawl. And you gotta figure, if Mayhem is gonna get hit for being rude and getting jumped, then the guys who actually did the jumping are gonna get hit too. So it’s not a surprise to me that Nick Diaz has had his request to fight on Strikeforce’s June card denied. As for if this is due to booking strategy, an imminent suspension, Scott Coker trying to do ‘the right thing’, or because Nick’s been talking about jumping ship to the UFC (a tricky proposition considering his champion clause), who knows.
Strikeforce says thanks but no thanks to Nick Diaz offer
