Nate Diaz puts Henderson and Thomson on blast

Monday, January 27, 2014

Nate Diaz, who has fought both Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson, waited 24 hours after Satuday’s fight, and then put the pair on blast.

The remarks were offered via smart phone, and as is usual in that medium, the punctuation and spelling were not of the greatest importance. Below is a near verbatim transcription.

I would’ve done a interview but they scared to call I think UFC got you all in check.

Last nights fight was wack first of all these guys are here to cause confusion.

I’m here to put these ass whoopins down to there maximum effect an u got these guys out here havn a wrestling match they’re smiling an shaking hands and havin a good old time instead of fighting for real they’re play fighting and this shits putting me to sleep that’s not what I signed up for nobody wants to watch that shit and it’s definitely causing confusion to the fans and the fighters I don’t know who’s judging these fights they should have both lost the fight.

Then you got this other motherfucker playing his Hollywood roll on the sidelines in his #sillyasssuits getting paid to sit there and state his bullshit opinion like anyone gives a fuck you’ve been here like 2 years and pulled out of half ur fights so I don’t know why u think ur calling the shots how about you win another fight or 2 and then maybe you can fight me motherfucker…

ps. I thought Thomson’s bitchass won the wrestling match …

The “Hollywood roll” reference was to UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. Pettis is recovering from a torn PCL, and plans a summer return. He has said in the past that he would like Diaz upon his return.

It is safe to say that Pettis vs. Diaz would not feature a very great deal of wrestling.
