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?

    Kick his ass Cowboy!!

  2. ThaGreenBandit says:

    2 bad asses about to throw down! Can’t wait to see this scrap

  3. slacker says:

    Some guys have to get more of a “hate on” as part of their pre-fight preparation with an opponent. So be it. Either way, it’s not going to help Nate. He is going to lose. Cerrone’s stand-up is too sharp for him, although they both have a great ground game. Although I think they are even in ground skills, Cerrone is the physically stronger guy which will give him the win. Nate will make a good gate-keeper LW.

  4. GRT 3000 says:

    Cowboys got this.

  5. learntoread says:

    Diaz by sub.

  6. Guamy says:

    fight of the night right here boyz

  7. John M says:

    Ohh wow classic one of the Diaz brothers being a complete fucking dick head, didn’t see that one coming. I have never liked nor had anything against Cowboy but after reading this….100% WAR COWBOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. santa cruz california says:

    come on. this is the fight game. this isn’t the dating game. plenty of fighters have the same mentality: destroy the opponent. to get into that mind frame is different for everyone. some folks have the competitive, athletic, respectful approach. others have a more negative angle that may be due to environment, or simply to perform with angry and aggressive emotion. some say to leave emotion out of it, but it can be powerful. any way you slice it, fighters shouldn’t take anything too personally. diaz fights with fire, and he may be drawing cowboy into his fight. since diaz normally operates this way, he is at the advantage. cowboy getting emotional might be just was diaz wanted. don’t let your emotions cloud your mindset.

  9. ricky says:

    i think he did that cuz theres another reason he doesnt like cerrone. I doubt he would do that if bendo tried to say whattup like that. cerrone def gona make him eat his words. tko win for cowboy

  10. Michael kk says:

    Diaz all day. that cowboy doesnt know what hes in for. Gona be a good fight tho, fight of the night for sure

  11. evilbeast says:

    Both Diaz brothers have shown their true colors recently and it’s a shame because they obviously have huge talent. I hope COWBOY puts a nice beating on this punk but I’m sure it still won’t shut Nate up. I would be ashamed to be affiliated with the Diaz brothers in any way (coaches and team members). These guys are an embarrassment to mixed martial arts and the UFC. KICK nates ASS COWBOY!!!!!!

  12. jmac says:

    bahhahahah nate diaz is gonna get destroyed eating cowboys fists all day. this will be nates first tko or ko loss of his career!

  13. david uppercut says:

    I could see why Nate would slap his hand away! who the hell goes up to someone and introduces themselves as their nickname? what a fruitcake, Nate is going to choke this turd out

  14. pk9grrr says:

    why were you expecting a kiss and a cuddle ,this is cagefighting ,the diaz bros are there to fight not to get facebook contacts ,it doesnt mean there bad guys.

  15. asu says:

    To be honest, if somebody came up to me and referred to himself as “Cowboy”, i’d want to slap him too.

  16. Mike Diaz says:

    Its on and on and on……..TEAM PENN!!!!!

  17. dos_cents says:

    The Diaz bro.s are pieces of shit.

  18. Like I’ve said from day 1 the two Diaz dung balls deserve an ass beating plus! Cowboy.. FK that assholie up! Break his arm and beat him at the only thing he’s decent at!

  19. I hope Cowboy destroys Nate’s standup and then gets him on the ground and subs this fucktard!

  20. KingGareth says:

    “Hi i’m cowboy!”, probably sounded gay to Nate and since Diaz is a homophobe, it probably sounded like he was hitting on him.
    Other than that some fighters just need to be in a mindset to hurt someone, in order to fight.

  21. BJPennrules says:

    I like this fight..but I think The Cowboys has got this.

  22. Delta says:

    Did anybody actually notice that this incident happened BEFORE the two were going to fight?

    “I was getting ready to fight Dennis Siver and then he walked away. ”

    All the comments suggest that everybody thinks this happened after they were already scheduled to fight.

    • slacker says:

      That’s true. Well, the video on is a bit misleading. Cerrone says Nate did it before “this fight”, which if you watch it post UFC 137, you think he’s referring to their upcoming match. But I guess that was recorded just before UFC 137, when Cerrone fought Siver.

      • Delta says:

        Don’t believe I’ve seen the video, but I don’t see the video being linked here. And as I pointed-out, the very article shows it happened before they were scheduled. It seems a lot of people commenting aren’t actually paying attention to what the article says, like they’re just reading the headline. Which, granted, happens a lot, but I was surprised NOBODY seemed to notice it.

        I think the Internet has made Mankind stupid.

        • slacker says:

          I read the quotation, but because of the video I saw I didn’t budge from my original thought. But below that, it is clear that it happened pre-fight UFC 137. However, it reflects on Nate even more poorly when they weren’t set to fight. I guess he just knew it was likely since they are both top 10 LW guys.

        • chon209 says:

          nate only want fight top fighters and they same weight class nate no stupid nate no they fight sooner later do you understand 😉 .. and if you seen nate comment on that thats what he said there in same bracket he aint trying to be freinds with him

        • slacker says:

          That’s right. Agreed.

        • Delta says:

          Not trying to be friends with him doesn’t justify being a total asshole for no reason, chon.

  23. Xaninho says:

    The cowboy thing might have been a bit too Brokeback Mountain for Nate lol!

    But I think Cerrone got this one.

  24. jeff says:

    your all wrong, nate will will him and his brother have some of the best boxing in mma, better then cerones, but he’s a kick boxer, better then siver but, he will get caught by one of those weird angle strikes, go down to the ground, nate will swarm and either TKO or sub him out


    Keep talking the Diaz Bro’s are the real deal.. Cowboy is about to find out the difference growing up in the hood and the ranch..

  26. evilbeast says:

    Cowboys love to stomp hood rats!!

  27. Donnybrook says:

    I’m thinking Nate knew he was going to fighting the winner of that fight and didn’t want to buddy up to a potential opponent or he’s simply just a miserable SOB.

  28. justAfan says:

    go cowboy, teach diaz how to smile

  29. sOppie says:

    Diaz brothers all day! lol at ppl hatin’ on Nate when I recall Cowboy pushing a guy after the guy went to shake his hand……

  30. rondo says:

    Go get you some……………………..Donald Cerr-OH-naay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. dave says:

    i hope diaz can pul this off,,,i think both nick and nate have a beating coming thre way….and i really hope i wrong..nate has no way to take the fight down when he is getting beat on the feet..and cowboy is to strong…diaz bros dont weight train they rely on natural power..but when the diaz bros are in fight mode they are soldiers you cant tal with them..i thik that iis why cowboy got told to beat he called himself cowboy..i hope im wrong like aways with nate ..i always am worried he is gong to lose and he shoks me..

  32. diaz brothers are a big pile of cowboy shit says:

    I hope the cowboy beats the fuck out of diaz and then tells his brother fuck you to pussy
