With all attention on the phenomenal UFC 205 press conference in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday evening, Nate Diaz finally decided that he wanted some of the spotlight back.
The Stockton born brawler has been reasonably quiet since his loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 202 in Las Vegas. However, after quotes from Dana White on Tuesday afternoon claimed that Nate weighed over 20 pounds more than Conor on the night of the fight, Diaz felt it was time to speak out.
Contacted by MMA Fighting in order to get his thoughts on the massive New York main event, Diaz responded with what was a typically blunt response before slamming Dana White for his recent comments.
“Fuck them both. You know both those little bitches are afraid to fight me. That’s why they are fighting each other.”
“And tell Dana I said get off Conor’s nuts,” Diaz added. “I left my room to that fight at 176 (pounds), so when I fought, I was probably 173. Quit telling people I was a monster to make him look good. I’ve been a lightweight my whole career.”
“Eddie said I was next after Gilbert, then I called him a bitch in the lobby and he turned the fight down repeatedly until I beat Conor,” Diaz said. “Then he called every day asking for the fight. Bitch. What kinda fighters are these guys?”
