Josh Gross of SportsIllustrated is reporting that Gary Shaw has pulled the plug on Nick Diaz’s appearance at Dream 3.
According to Shaw, a stipulation in Nick Diaz’s contract, give EliteXC the power to pull the plug on any fight that coincides with a scheduled EliteXC show. Being only 33 days before Diaz is scheduled to fight on the June 14 EliteXC Hawaii card is just to close for comfort.
EliteXC President, Gary Shaw:
With Shaw, apparently, unaware as little as two days ago of an upcoming bout for the 24-year-old Diaz that conflicted with next month’s EliteXC, members of both promotional camps spoke Monday to find a suitable conclusion.
Diaz’s manager, Cesar Gracie:
“We put these two organizations in contact with each other,” he said. “They were supposed to figure it out but there was some miscommunication somewhere.”
