Dana White on Nick Diaz no-showing press conferences: "This is crazy. This is beyond insane."

When asked if White has considered requiring fighters go to go through psych testing before booking them. White said no, he's booked 1,600 fights and this has never happened.

White said this is a big setback financially. "It's a huge blow. We spent a lot of money on this. Just in flights, we've spent 15,000 dollars that he never showed up for. Those are just flights in the last couple days."

White said all Diaz had to do is show up. He said he didn't have to answer anyone's questions, but he at least needed to show up and sit there. White said Diaz said he would do the media appearances even though he is notoriously shy about doing any interviews.

GSP said it blows his mind because he worked so hard to get to the top level that someone else would jeopardize this. He said if he won, his life would have changed completely.

GSP said he doesn't like doing the media appearances and the stare-downs. "I have to do it. I do it every single time because it's part of the promotion." He said he'd rather be in the gym, but he doese it because he has to.
