That was an audition (his fight with Nate Diaz, who almost lost in the end, although he ended up winning by unanimous decision)… You audition for me, then I decide if it’s you or that guy. Me and the promo will sit down and say, ‘I like this audition tape. Let’s go ahead and choose him below. And he came out and was auditioning and for a while it was good. But then all of a sudden at minute 25 you shit on the bed. You can not do that.

“Someone has to be real with this guy. At the end of the day, we know, let’s be honest, we know this is business. This is a partnership between us and the promotion. In a society, you have to give them something to work with. You have to give them something to sell. And they have thrown you bone after bone after bone. Let’s be honest, based on that last performance, you can’t go out and do that with Nate Diaz.. You can not do that”.
