Nick Diaz doesn’t run from anyone. He’s said it before, he’ll take his whooping, but he needs to get paid. That’s a rationale hard to argue with, as the ones who are usually arguing against it aren’t stepping into the ring or cage. Nick Diaz fought for most of his life at a relatively minuscule pay rate compared to most athletes of his caliber, so I applaud his hold out, and hope he gets the cash.
As far as him running from Hector? No. As I said before, Nick Diaz doesn’t run, he just avoids crap paydays. Besides, it’s not the best fight for Diaz.
