    Can't embed the Tweet but thought his last one was interesting:

    Hahaha @[​IMG]️go with the quiter[​IMG][​IMG].

    https://twitter.com/NateDiaz209

    Not sure who the hahaha is aimed at, but the quiter (sic) is Cerrone you'd assume, and he's insinuating that someone has picked to fight him - that obviously being Conor.

    Least it be forgotten Diaz also claimed:


    He was fighting Conor at 189 - which there was some truth to, but didn't happen. And he claimed in a backstage interview after the Johnson fight he was "promised" a fight with Conor next.

    Or maybe this has something to do with Diaz and Alvarez, but it's hard to make the connection.

    Diaz bros make the sport more entertaining. There's no one else like them.

    You must have missed the part where I mentioned a couple of instances when Diaz talked nonsense.

    What do you think the Tweet means?

    Quitter? Maybe he's referring to Cowboy with all the Conor comments about him being a quitter. Diaz vs. Cowboy II, I'm ready for it maaaaane.

    No idea but not sure why you think he's insinuating a Conor vs Cerrone fight which makes 0 sense right now.

    I think "cryptic" is being pretty generous! Even Nate probably isn't sure what he meant.

    I don't often say this, especially about game fighters like Cerrone (and I truly mean no disrepect), but Nate mentally broke him in that fight. I'd love the rematch and to see Ceronne overcome that obstacle--whether win or lose--as long as he isn't mentally defeated the second time. I enjoy both fighters equally.

    But he's saying 'Hahaha' @.......himself? I wish I'd never come across the Tweet now and started this thread. He's just as hard to understand in text form as he is when talking in person.

    Haha, I know. 'Drivel' probably would have being more apt.

    I'm glad there isn't. The problem I have is that they complain about pay, constantly deal with issues outside the cage, and when they finally get the big fights/paydays they demand they lose big and complain that they lost.

    Yeah, Cowboy looked absolutely lost in that fight and Nate was using his head as a straight speed bag. It was crazy. I think Nate has his number and would win a rematch but I don't think it would be as lopsided as it was the first time around.

    Sorry, I should have explained my theory that dos Anjos may have being injured and Diaz might have been (one of the LWs) asked if he could be ready next week to fill in as well as Cerrone. But that would have been making an assumption based on that Tweet alone. If dos Anjos was to get injured, I'd think Conor would want to stay on the card and fight someone at 155.
