“I feel like I’m better than all the guys in my division. I don’t see where any of them are better than me. He’s definitely a guy that likes to fight and come forward. I think I’m better than him everywhere. On the feet, he better knock me out, if not, he’s gonna be in trouble.”
The younger Stocktonian, Nate Diaz, tells ESPN.com that his opponent, Donald Cerrone, better knock him out this Friday in their co-main event if he wants to win the matchup.
A pivotal lightweight fight that sends the winner up the ranks is just four days away from going down.
Diaz has only lost at lightweight to the very top of the division and even in defeat; he has looked good and often battered his opponents only to lose via decision by points.
Cerrone has looked virtually unstoppable since crossing over from the WEC in all of his UFC appearances.
The outcome is anyone’s guess, but with the fight just around the corner, who you picking Penn Nation?featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
