Nate Diaz: I Beat (Gray Maynard), I’m Gonna Hunt Down Pettis and Thomson and Take Them Out

UFC lightweight contenders Nate Diaz (16-9 MMA, 11-7 UFC) and Gray Maynard (11-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) will meet for a third time on November 30, when the pair headline ‘The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale’ in Las Vegas.

Although the scorecards say that Diaz and Maynard split their first two fights, Nate fully believes that he won both of their previous contests, and says he will prove victorious again this weekend. After that, he plans on hunting down Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson, as he told MMAWeekly:

“I beat (Gray Maynard), I’m gonna hunt down Pettis and Thomson’s ass and take them out,” said Diaz. “I’ll be back fighting for a title, real quick.”

A win over “The Bully” this weekend would help propel Diaz back to the top of the UFC’s stacked lightweight division. Do you see Nate pulling off the win and getting back in to title contention? Let’s hear it Penn Nation!

    IDK bout all that. Pettis would stroke diaz on the feet and thompson already did. I think he beats maynard though.

  2. UFC 84 Forever says:

    Pettis would KO Diaz. If Thomson can do it, Pettis can. I hope he beats Maynard, but I really don’t want to see him fight for the title again.

  3. jamie says:

    I really like diaz, i agree i think he beat maynard before and on tuf he choked him out, diaz is a better fighter then maynard, as far as pettis goes i think pettis is a much more well rounded striker and can finish fights fast standing up, on the ground i’d give diaz gthe edge although pettis is pretty good there too. thomson I don’t know he finished diaz last time but i think since he just came off a loss for the title he wasn’t at his A game. A rematch would be good to see.
