Them 209 boys sure know how to sell a fight, don’t they? Two months after Nick Diaz almost threw down with UFC 137 opponent BJ Penn at the event’s official weigh-ins, Nate Diaz got in Donald Cerrone’s grill (Pictured), flipped off his foe’s cowboy hat and gave him a shove when they faced-off after Wednesday’s UFC 141 pre-fight press conference.
Although the lightweight shootout will not serve as Friday night’s featured attraction, many MMA enthusiasts believe they will (if they have not done so already) steal the show.
Their rivalry seems to have blossomed from an altercation that occurred (or may not have happened, if you were to ask Nate) this past October. Cerrone went to introduce himself, Diaz allegedly slapped his hand away and called him a ‘punk ass,’ etc.
Either way, the arch enemies will get to settle their differences in exactly 48 hours.
UFC 141 takes place inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
