Following a tension-filled UFC 137 post-fight press conference on Saturday, Nick Diaz‘s manager and trainer Cesar Gracie talked with the press about some of his fighter’s frustrations in not being able to get good boxers to spar with leading up to the bout with B.J. Penn.

Gracie also commented on seeing UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre at the event moving around in such a way that might be difficult for someone who just pulled out of his fight with Carlos Condit less than two weeks prior due to a knee injury.

Gracie discussed the problem he had with Diaz being pulled out of the title fight with St-Pierre simply for missing a press conference and also pointed out the fact that even though Diaz did not go to that press conference, he still put on a spectacular performance for the fans, something St-Pierre, who did go to the press conference, did not do.
