Tony Ferguson recently sent some fighting words Nate Diaz’s way, but as it turns out “El Cucuy” was just playing around.
Longtime lightweight contender is a fan favourite and is known for his unpredictable style in and out of the octagon, last week he posted a Tweet in which he called Nate Diaz his bi**h.
Now in an interview with Submission Radio, he explained the reason for that. He said, “Oh, he always has [been my b*tch]. It’s just some sh*t talk, just some light banter, man. I got nothing against the dude. He’s a good, solid dude. But when it comes down to the scrap game, it’s like come on, put ‘em up, put ‘em up.”
Tony further added, “Dude, I’ve been around a bunch of Dagestanis trying to surround my family. I’ve been around a bunch of sh*t in the fight game. I’m gonna be even real, even Nate trying to call my name. I held up my hand up saying, ‘Not now Nate, I’m busy,’ and went off to an interview.”
“I got nothing against the kid,” Tony Ferguson calls Nate Diaz a “kid”
Tony Ferguson says that he loves Nate Diaz and maybe he can get that whooping some time in the future, “I got nothing against the kid,” Ferguson continued. “He’s Mexican, so I got a lot of love for the dude. We just happen to be in different divisions.”.
He added, “But we’re different weight classes, so I shouldn’t f*cking trip too much. Like I said, there’s plenty of piles for everybody, it’s just different, you’ve got to take an open look at it and not be so f*cking greedy going after the same f*cking ones.”
