UFC NEWS – Cerrone Not A Fan Of Nate Diaz: Recounts Locker Room Altercation
”… I go over and introduce myself and go, ‘What’s up Nate? I’m ‘Cowboy,’ He fu**in’ slapped my hand away and called me a punk-ass motherfu**er and told me to ‘get on.’ I was like, ‘Sh*t, alright.’ I don’t know what to say to the dude. I don’t know what his point… I guess he doesn’t want to be cordial. He just wanted to be a punk and… go ahead… I was getting ready to fight Dennis Siver and then he walked away. He just took off after that. It kind of caught me by surprise. I don’t know anything about the guy. I just know that [he and Nick] just wake up pissed off all the time for no reason. It just seems like they’re always mad. Whatever he does to get his mind ready for the fight, it must be it… If you want to talk sh*t to me, you’re just gonna enrage me and piss me off. So feed my fu**ing flame. That’s what I say. Let’s go!”
A recent guest on ESPN Radio with Steve Cofield, Donald Cerrone tells a story of when he first met Nate Diaz backstage at UFC 137 just a few months ago.
Now, they meet in the Octagon at UFC 141 one week from today and Cerrone says, Nate’s bad attitude only adds fuel to his already burning fire.
It should come as no surprise that “a Diaz Brother” behaved in this manner, truth is, Nate is a really cool guy, he just is not out to make any friends with anyone he thinks he may have to fight and brings that same kind of “Stockton heat” his brother carries on his shoulder everywhere he goes.
Is Cerrone the wrong guy to pull that card with or will Diaz show “Cowboy” how they do it in Cali?
