Exclusive | Josh Thomson Addresses Nate Diaz Directly In Latest Interview: ‘We can fight again, but you didn’t make weight the first time’ | BJPENN.COM RADIO
Nate Diaz made waves in the MMA community following his recent appearance on BJPenn.com Radio as he made several accusations towards the man who had just finished him inside the octagon, Josh Thomson. Diaz claimed Thomson made feminine noises while they fought, and that Thomson ran throughout the fight because he was, ’a guy who’s running scared shitless for his life.’ While Diaz is rallying for a rematch with Thomson now and the interview has gotten plenty of publicity, Josh Thomson decided to come out with some pretty serious accusations of his own.
Thomson was featured on the latest episode of BJPenn.com Radio where he dropped this bomb on George and Pedro, Josh stated, “I think the biggest thing is this; he is interested in a rematch with me, one thing he needs to remember before the fight even happened, he was complaining after weigh in’s about how he was moving back up to 170, so he couldn’t even make weight when we fought the first time. Nate knows this.” Stop the presses! Diaz never made weight? That is quite the accusation indeed!
Thomson went on to address Diaz directly stating, “I am going to say this directly to him; Nate, you didn’t make the weight, so how are you going to make the weight when we fight again? That’s the thing that’s discerning, we all let it slide because it was a huge fight, but you didn’t make the weight and you still lost. So unless you plan on fighting me a 170 then I’m not really interested. Like I said, I’m looking forward to the title shot, I’m looking forward to getting in there for the title. If I have to go through him again to do it, then so be it, maybe you should start watching what you eat, maybe you should start doing that to take care of yourself. You couldn’t make the weight the first time and that was something I was going to keep to myself, but you want to start talking trash? Saying all these things, knowing that I beat you fair and square, I guess next time we’ll take 20% of your purse if you don’t make weight.”
“It’s an issue I could have brought up and made a big deal about but I didn’t do it because that’s not the kind of person I am. I could have made a big fuss and taken it, rubbed some salt in the wound and taken 20% percent of your purse after you lost, but I didn’t That’s the kind of person I am, I moved on and I suggest you do the same thing.”
