Nick Diaz has a little message for Jon Jones...

And that, according to Diaz, is what's up.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Former welterweight number one contender, Nick Diaz, posted a photo of Alexander Gustafsson on his official Instagram page (see it), telling his followers "That's what's up!" The towering Swede can be seen wearing a Diaz shirt that reads, "Don't be scared, homie."

The message, of course, is directed at UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

"Bones" was hospitalized by Gustafsson after his five-round unanimous decision win at UFC 165 last September. While mixed martial arts (MMA) fans were clamoring for an immediate rematch, "Bones" instead made the "badass decision" to face Glover Teixeira instead (details).

Then accused Gustafsson -- fresh off a win over Jimi Manuwa that put him back into a title fight -- of being afraid to fight fellow 205-pound contender Daniel Cormier.

Someone is mistaken in this equation, as we can't possibly have an entire division full of chickenshit fighters. Chances are, none of them are scared to fight, but enjoy the head games that are part and parcel to combat sports. Diaz, meanwhile, is still under contract, but home sitting on his couch (because of this).

Don't stay retired, homie.
