Nick Diaz Can’t Lose!

Even in losing, Diaz is winning.

After getting cast off the headline spot at UFC 137 through his presser no-show antics, Nick Diaz got a new gig, facing BJ Penn in what was then elevated to the “co-Main Event” after Zuffa moved Penn’s opponent, Carlos Condit up to face Georges St. Pierre in the headliner.

Now, GSP’s out with a knee injury, according to Dana White’s Twitter Account, and so Nick Diaz is back in the headline spot, but now facing a fighter in BJ Penn, that may or may not be motivated to face him.

I’d call that a pretty winning situation for Diaz.
