“Nick Diaz, fight promoter” has a nice ring to it. There’s a rumor speculating that Nick Diaz will end up starting his own promotion called “War Mixed Martial Arts.” It could just be some publicity stunt, or it could actually happen. Hypothetically, would it be a good decision for Diaz to start his own fight promotion?
The answer is yes, of course it is! Nick Diaz has become one of the most polarizing figures in mixed martial arts. Nick is a person that fans either love or hate, there is no in between with him, which makes him a perfect fight promoter. People will watch his production for one of two reasons: because they love Diaz or because they want to see him fail.
No matter what Nick does in life, people will pay to see what he’s doing. This is all speculation, but if this ends up coming to fruition 209 could stay on the MMA map for years to come.
