Nate Diaz is back and so is his mouth. The younger of the two Diaz brothers is ready to take the next step. The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner is taking on Clay Guida, who has a strong wrestling background. That suits Diaz perfectly since after his last win at Ultimate Fight Night 15 over Josh Neer, he called out all wrestlers and submission fighters:
"(Neer) ain't no black belt in jiu-jitsu like the other guys I've been fighting. All these other jiu-jitsu guys and (expletive) and wrestlers y'all need to learn how to box and get in here and fight us."
Guida got the call and is ready for the challenge. He told Cage Writer that he's not exactly high on the way the Diaz brothers behave:
"I totally respect the heck out of both of them, their fighting style is awesome. As far as the antics after the fight, in post-fight interviews, when they're at a gym working out ... if I were them I'd want to be remembered for my fighting style and have a smile on my face. Not downtalking the refs, the judge, the audience, whoever it may be, it seems like they have a negative attitude about everyone."
Maybe Diaz (10-2, 5-0 UFC) needs to be angry to pull out victories:
"If that's what it takes, that's what it takes but Saturday night it ain't gonna happen. When I have a barrage of elbows and punches coming at him, he's not going to know what hit him. We have a recipe for success."
