Donald Cerrone (Pictured) sent Nate Diaz a message during Tuesday’s media workouts, and he didn’t even have to utter a single word. Knowing his UFC 141 opponent was standing just several feet away, Cerrone made sure his workout pads produced more deafening blasts than usual.
Cerrone’s presence, along with the thunderous slaps coming from his sparring session, appeared to get under Diaz’s skin. So much so that Diaz abruptly cut our one-on-one interview short.
“Oh, you mean the pads made him look over? That’s kind of the point, wasn’t it?” Cerrone rhetorically asked us.” So good, let that be the memory in his head when he sleeps at night, ‘[expletive], that [expletive] kicks hard.'”
UFC 141 takes place this Friday inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
