Nate Diaz: “Nah F–k that, Im fighting Anthony Pettis”

Nate Diaz

‘What does that title even mean? No one knows what it means, but its provocative — it gets the people going!Nathan Diaz may be signed to fight “The Bully” Gray Maynard in a trilogy match at the upcoming TUF Finale, however he doesn’t mind tweeting out that he’s fighting the newly minted champ.

Hopefully Nate is just telling the universe what he wants and not thinking or insinuating that he will fight for the title after his first knockout loss, suffered at UFC on Fox against Josh Thomson. The UFC may have put on some criticized ‘undeserved‘ title fights in the past, but we can’t see an angle to slip Nate in.

As of now, the UFC has announced that TJ Grant will in fact fight for the title next. After that, it may still be a hard sell for Nate, should he get past “The Bully,” since he had recently lost to the former champ Benson Henderson as well in a title shot.
