Video immaturity: Nate Diaz not a fan of cowboy hats or Donald Cerrone

Aside from watching 500-plus pounds of muscle hit the stage at the UFC 141 weigh-in today, the staredown between Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone should be epic, if not a bit violent.

Yesterday's staredown at the final press conference resulted in Donald Cerrone's cowboy hat flying 10 feet in the air. Check out the video (NSFW) to see the aftermath with 20-somethings, Nate and his brother Nick, talk about who's really the puss in this case.

For Cerrone, he loves being the bully and thinks he's in Diaz's head.

"He is the guy that punks everybody else and gets in everyone else's head, so now what happened? The tables turned, and now I'm in your head, you little (expletive)," Cerrone told Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "It feels good to turn the tables, to think that he came out hard and wanted to be a bully and now I'm bullying him."

Cerrone wasn't totally calm about Thursday's minor fracas. That was $1,000 cowboy hat that Diaz was messing with.

This is shaping up as a very solid card with the Cerrone-Diaz beef leading into a good main event between behemoths Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem.
