Cesar Gracie (Nick Diaz’s manager) spoke with MMAJunkie about Mayhem Miller’s challenge:
“There’s no doubt Miller is a very good fighter; anybody who can go five rounds with Jake Shields is a good fighter, but his record for his last five fights is not really something to boast that much about. It’s not really a win-win situation for Nick to go to 185 just because Miller is just making a challenge.
If you want to call out the champion, that means you’re prepared to go to his weight, if you’re not prepared, don’t call him out. If he just wants to fight Nick, come by the academy and Nick will oblige him on the spot, at any weight.”
