Dana White Says The Story of The Diaz Bothers Will Be a Sad One
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.17.2014

- Dana White recently spoke about the issues with the Diaz brothers. Here is what he had to say…

On The Story of The Diaz Bothers Being a Sad One: "This is one of those situations that is going to be a sad story in a few years when you look back on it. You're going to say they were two talented kids that had fans and had interest in fighting and they sat out. "What people don't realize when you're in the moment and your time is now, guys don't realize until it's over. You will never make that kind of money again for the rest of your life. You should fight as much as you can possibly fight, get as popular as you can ever get and make as much money as you possibly can."

On Nate Diaz: "With the Nate Diaz thing, he was in a position where he fought for the title. Then he fought again to put himself back in title contention and got knocked out in that fight," White said. Now he wants a new contract and a title shot and all that. It's just not how this stuff works. You can sit out, you can talk all you want, you can tweet all you want and you can do whatever you want. The bus is going to pass you by and you're going to be sitting there going, ‘What did I do?' Or maybe they won't. They're the kind of kids that, listen, you came from the mean streets and you guys are street guys and all that cool s–t. I get it. But you gotta play the game a little bit."

Would he Share His Feelings With The Brothers?: "Of course I would, but you can't talk to these guys," White said. "You can't pick up the phone and call these guys. I talked to Nick, I offered him the Lombard fight, he said he was interested in it, then gone – he disappears. You can't contact him again. You can't get a hold of him."

On Fighters Having to Capitalize on Their Short Window of Opportunity: "Life goes on without anybody," White said. "Presidents of countries leave, die, move on, whatever. The world moves on without you, man. This is your time to make money. This is your time to do all these things. If you just let it pass you by, that's your decision. You're grown men. I heard all the things: ‘We don't know how to pay our taxes, we don't know how to buy houses, we don't know how to …' Well, you're grown men. You better figure it out quick because the bus is going to pass you by."
