If you were hoping that the whupping Kurt Pellegrino put on Nate Diaz right up until the last 10 seconds of the fight would humble him a bit, you were wrong. Nate went right back into lisping smack talk mode after the fight, calling out Tyson Griffin again:
“That guy doesn’t want to fight me because he thinks he’s somewhere higher up than me? I just beat a guy that’s better than him. When was the last time he finished a fight anyways against any 155 pounder that was half decent on the ground..oh yeah never.”
Pretty much everyone coming out of Cesar Gracie’s school hates Tyson Griffin for jumping camps from Cesar’s to XTreme Couture, so it’s understandable why Nate continues to call him out and Cesar continues to publish the call outs. I’m sure if Tyson and Nick had their way they’d be facing off with eachother in their next fight, but I doubt the UFC is gonna put this fight together for a while. At the moment, the feud will create a little pop with hardcore fans, but if they let it stew for another year or so it should make for a very marketable fight.
