Tony Ferguson on Nate Diaz: “I might as well Stockton Slap the sh** out of you!”

Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson had a lot to say about Nate Diaz in reaction to the Stockton native turning down a fight with him.

Nate Diaz has always been a well-respected and well-loved fighter. However, he broke into the mainstream and became a household name among casual MMA fans after his back-and-forth rivalry with UFC Lightweight Champion, Conor McGregor. Since that second fight with McGregor, Diaz has reportedly turned down a number of fights, including former UFC Lightweight Champion, Eddie Alvarez and top lightweight contender, Tony Ferguson.

 

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Ferguson responded to Nate Diaz’s refusal to fight him.

“Little b*tch. I don’t know. I don’t know what his problem is, dude. Like, I understand that you want to say, like, ‘McGregor, I’m not going to do your dirty work.’ Dude, I don’t want to go into name calling. I don’t have to do that […]”

Diaz has been offered a number of high-ranking lightweight contenders, but he only seems interested in a ‘money fight’ – potentially a third fight with Conor McGregor. When offered Eddie Alvarez, Diaz tweeted in response: “Lol at your fight.” Tony Ferguson responded to this attitude displayed by Diaz.

“If you’re a fighter and you’re in this organisation and you say that you’d rather go and ride a bicycle, you’ve got better things to do, that’s cute. That’s real cute. I might as well Stockton Slap the sh** out of you.”

 

Ferguson also implied that this new-found fame and fortune has made Diaz ‘soft’ and that he is ‘a hell of a lot tougher than [Diaz]’.

“Money never made me soft […] even if it made me soft, I wouldn’t forget where I come from […] You’ve got a place to represent – like you said ‘represent’. You’ve got a man right here that’s calling you out and you’re not signing on the dotted line? You’re a clown, dude. You’re fake.”

What do you guys make of this? Will Tony Ferguson get a response from Nate Diaz? Or will Diaz continue to hold out for something else? Let us know what you have to say on Facebook and Twitter.
