Nate Diaz doesn’t take too kindly to the people he’s about to fight, and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone is no exception. When the two squared off for a photo op after the UFC 141 pre-fight press conference, Diaz had more than words for Cowboy, making it a much more interactive photo op than normal.

    Go get you some, Donald Ce-Ro-Nay!

    Can’t say I’ve ever been this much of a Cowboy fan before, but now I really hope he rips Diaz’s head off… “Don’t be scared homie”

  • Mario

    My god, I cannot WAIT for this one 🙂

    This is going to be UGLY!

    I love how Nate Diaz “takes offense” to a stare down when he’s doing the same exact thing to them. Hell, more often then not he’s the one starting the jaw jacking and shoving and touching face to face then gets all pissy when someone does it right back. You’re a professional fighter on the biggest stage of them all and you act like a playground bully. What gets me is he isnt even that good and acts like this!!

    Dream on haters… nobody has ever beaten down Nate… the closest was that bigger guy he fought when he went up in weight and he did it by dominating with wrestling.

    Look man, truth is that fighting the any of the Diaz bros is a tough gig… they come in to fight, not to run, not to chicken**** with endless strategy, the scrap and win or lose fighting fans respect that. Cerrone… his hype train is about to be derailed!!

    And he lucky Nick wasn’t close ha ha ha!

      Great post! No disrespect to Cerrone, but I would love to see Nate win. The Diaz brothers only lose by decision, and usually close decisions. If Cerrone wins, I’ll be impressed.

      Cerrone is gonna slap this little wanna be gangster like a the bitch he is, just like Condit is gonna do to his over rated brother !

      • TKD

        I will give the Diaz (***hole) brothers the respect they have earned, but I certainly would love to see them both get handed their asses in their next fights. I believe Cowboy and Condit are the guys that can do it!

        • RonnieV

          Nate will have a very tough time with Cerrone, as a fan, I’m scared for Diaz. As far as Condit, I don’t think he has a chance vs. Nick. Condit will win the first round, just like BJ did, and then Nick will let the fists fly for the next four rounds. The second Condit takes him down, Nick will submit him. Love him or hate him, Nick is a frickin’ bad ass, and five round fights is where he excells. GSP is the only welterweight that could possibly beat Diaz right now.

    If Hermes Franka can tap out Nate Diaz, Cowboy certainly can. And Nick’s been knocked out before too so dont act like they’re not stoppable. They’re great fighters, I admit. They just need to grow up and be at least somewhat respectful of other people.

    • RonnieV

      Good try Dude! I’m sure you also noticed that it was September 2002 the last time Nick got knocked out (his 5th MMA fight), in which he came back and knocked out that same guy a year later. Nate was choked out by Franca, when he was 19 years old. Fighters get better!

    Love em or hate em. They sell fights. The tactics they use are punk ass-ish but look at other fighters who do the same. Trash talkers like Chael Sonnen, Frank Mir and Tito Ortiz, they sell seats. Hate Floyd Mayweather if you want but you’ll tune in and pay to watch him lose (even though he never will). People like that are usually richer fighters. That being said, I hope he gets his ass handed to him. Talk trash, push shove, act bad ass fine. But knocking off a cowboy’s hat is asking for it, people would have been shot for that in the 1800’s. My grandfather a genuine cowboy treated his hats better than his own family. I think that Cerrone is better than Diaz in every way minus BJJ. But Cerrone’s JJ is good enough not to get caught. Either way this fight goes, there will be fireworks.

      Good post! You’ll also notice that the Diaz brothers & Chael also fill-up these chatboards more than anybody else. They sell tickets, and they always put on entertaining fights. The more you guys hate and make these guys villians, the more the Diaz brothers will get paid.

  • Nate Diaz is such a FU**ING PUNK!! DONT PISS THE COWBOY OFF!! An angry COWBOY is a DANGEROUS MOTHERFU**ER!! Diaz is going down HARD just like his BITCH ASS brother is!!
