Nick Diaz once again ditched an event, this time no-showing a scheduled grappling match against Bralio Estima at the World Jiujitsu Expo. Estima who was disappointed at Diaz for being unprofessional, took to twitter shortly after the bout:

Unfortunately the so expected super fight Estima vs Diaz didn't happened. I'm very sad as I did everything possible for it to happen. I weighed in at 180lbs this morning at 10 am as agreed and asked to see nicks weighing too but I was informed by Cesar his Coach that he was 180lbs in the previous night and that he ate and is over 180lbs even though I just let it go an still showed up to fight. What pisses me off the most is that he was telling he was going to give his purse to charity for the childrens hospital and than don't show up. What kind of person is that. Shame. Ps. I'm sorry for all the ones who stayed up to watch this fight but I'm sure the prelims fights was amazing. Thank u all for the support aways

A furious Estima also talked about this on MMA Fighting's video, where he calls Diaz "disrespectful to him, the sport, and the kids in his charity".

More quotes after the jump.

"I know he's supposed to be the big MMA bad guy and he's all tough, he's supposed to be showbiz, but what is this? When you make an announcement that you're going to fight for charity and you don't show up, what the hell is going on? It's not about showbiz. It's about being a good person. I don't know what is going on."

"I'm a professional athlete. I never thought he wouldn't show up. I came from the U.K., I made the weight, I made 185 pounds, I didn't expect him to not show up. I don't understand why he'd run away."

"I'll fight him in MMA. If maybe he feels more comfortable there, I'll do it. I gave up a lot of things to make this to happen. I came here to fight, you said you were going to be here, were going to give your purse to charity. It is very disrespectful."

"It's a shame. I'm sorry on his behalf that the show didn't happen. All you guys, I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, it didn't happen. It's a shame, it's disrespectful for me, and for the sport, and for the kids in his charity."
