If you thought Anthony Pettis was unimpressed with the main event of UFC on FOX 10, which took place last Saturday night (Jan. 25, 2014) in Chicago, Illinois, then don't even get Nate Diaz started on what took place between Josh Thomson and Ben Henderson.
Whoops, too late.
"Last night's fight was whack, first of all these guys are here to cause confusion. I'm here to put these ass whoopins down to their maximum effect and you got these guys out here having a wrestling match, they're smiling and shaking hands and having a good time instead of fighting for real. They're play fighting and this shit is putting me to sleep that's not what I signed up for, nobody wants to watch that shit and it's definitely causing confusion to the fans and the fighters. I'm not sure who's judging these fights they should have both lost the fight. Then you got this other motherfucker playing his Hollywood role on the sidelines in his #sillyasssuits getting paid to sit there and state his bullshit opinion like anyone gives a fuck you've been here two years and pulled out of half your fights so I don't know why you think you're calling the shots why don't you win another fight or two and then maybe you can fight me motherfucker. P.S. I thought Thomson's bitchass won the wrestling match."
For the record, Thomson lost by way of controversial split decision (see the scorecards here).
The winner was expected to be in a position to challenge "Showtime" for the 155-pound title; however, there was nothing in last weekend's performance from "Smooth" -- according to UFC President Dana White -- that warranted a third fight against Pettis.
Who just so happened to be a guest analyst for FOX in his "silly-ass suit."
Diaz was knocked out by Thomson last year on FOX and has since rebounded with a technical knockout victory over Gray Maynard, using his spot in the win column to bag on Pettis, as well as UFC, after his employers failed to come to terms on his next fight (against this guy).
That's his story and he's sticking to it.
