Ricardo Lamas Slams Nik Lentz: He Has No Heart
Top ranked UFC featherweight Ricardo Lamas fired back at Nik Lentz today during an interview with MMAJunkie.
Lentz took a shot at Lamas’ performance this past Saturday against Hacran Dias, saying he would beat Lamas easy. “The Bully” didn’t take too kindly to that, and fired back by saying:
āif he wants some, he can get some.ā
Lamas continued with:
āFirst of all, this kid doesnāt even have heart,ā he said. āIāve heard stories about this guy; my boy Luis Palomino, āBaboon,ā was down at (American Top Team) for a while, sparred with Nik one time, messed him up, and then Nik wanted to duck him for the rest of the sparring sessions he was there. They would not let āBaboonā spar with him. To me, that shows no heart.
āWhen I go up against somebody and they give me a licking in a sparring session, you bet your ass Iām coming after you the next time. Thereās no way youāre not going to let me spar you again, because Iām going to come after you until I get you. That just shows if you have heart or not, and this kid has no heart.
āHe goes on Twitter saying, āI (would) beat Ricardo Lamas or Cub Swanson easy. Easy money.ā I know heās popping his mouth off to get a better fight, but thereās no need for that.ā
Neither fighter currently has a fight scheduled, but with Lamas’ broken thumb, it may be a while before we get to see this one resolved in the cage.
