According to Shaw, a stipulation in Nick Diaz’s contract, give EliteXC the power to pull the plug on any fight that coincides with a scheduled EliteXC show. Being only 33 days before Diaz is scheduled to fight on the June 14 EliteXC Hawaii card is just to close for comfort.
With Shaw, apparently, unaware as little as two days ago of an upcoming bout for the 24-year-old Diaz that conflicted with next month’s EliteXC, members of both promotional camps spoke Monday to find a suitable conclusion.
Diaz’s manager, Cesar Gracie:
“We put these two organizations in contact with each other,” he said. “They were supposed to figure it out but there was some miscommunication somewhere.”
