Nate Diaz: Maybe it's my turn
"Well yeah, it's a big fight," Diaz said earlier this week on a media conference call for the fight. "It's important and there's a belt. So It's pretty much the biggest thing going on right now."
A fairly typical Diaz answer, to be certain. Short, sweet and to the point.
But when pressed, maybe, just maybe, as much as his reputation is that of a street-tough brawler who's just as likely to throw up a middle finger at you as he is smack you around for three rounds – maybe Diaz is cool, after all, with being a champ and being in the limelight.
"I think it would be good because my teammates have all been champions," he said. "And I don't know ... maybe it's my turn with something like that."
