UFC 137: 4 Reasons Nick Diaz Being Pulled from UFC 137 Is a Good Thing

Nick Diaz has been pulled from his UFC 137 title matchup with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

The fighter replacing him will be Carlos Condit, who was previously scheduled to fight at UFC 137, but against BJ Penn in the main event of the evening.

Diaz was pulled from the fight after not showing up for a UFC press conference in Las Vegas, after having already missed one in Toronto.

Here is four reasons Diaz being pulled from UFC 137 is a good thing.
