“We grab his gear, we get the team, we walk outside. As we’re walking through the parking lot, Dana White’s personal body guard comes running over, and he’s f–king massive. Like an NFL linebacker, like 6’6”, 300 f–king pounds, in shape, yolked, big f–king Hawaiian dude. (He said) ‘Dolce, Dolce, you can’t go man, you’ve got to be careful! Nick Diaz is looking for Johny, he wants to fight him!’ I was like ‘what? What are you talking about?’
Dolce added that shortly after the warning, he and his team heard a lot of noise at the same parking lot like some brawl had broken out. And as Hendricks was preparing himself for his final weight cut before his fight against Robbie Lawler at UFC 171, the former UFC Welterweight Champion had a bigger problem in his way in the form the elder Diaz brother.
“(He’s like) ‘he’s looking for him in the parking lot, right now, he wants to fight Johny Hendricks right now in the parking lot!’ I was like ‘are you f–king kidding me?’ Then all of the sudden we hear people screaming like ‘there he is! F–k you man!’ All of the sudden like a riot breaks out in the parking lot. Johny is all geared up, we’re all geared up,” he added. “We’re going to finish cutting half a pound of f–king weight, and we’re like, ‘Oh fuck, Nick Diaz and all the f–king 209 boys are about to jump us in the f–king parking lot — like during the f–king UFC weigh-ins.
However, before Diaz and his crew could get into the scene, Hendricks and his team decided to flee the scene and avoid a brawl against the 209 boys at all costs.
“So we snatch up all our gear and we’re like we gotta make tracks and get the f–k out of here before these boys figure out it’s us. So we’re like running with our gym bags and our gear, running through the parking lot, run across the street, get to the place we’re going. We take the elevator and we’re like ‘holy s–t that was f–king crazy!”
What's next for Nick Diaz?
As of now, Nick Diaz has gone inactive from the fight business and a return to the Octagon for the elder Diaz brother seems unlikely. However, Nate Diaz, on the other hand, continues to represent Stockton as part of the current UFC Welterweight Division.Published 27 Mar 2020, 05:49 IST
