Diego Sanchez has a message for the crybaby ingrate named Nate Diaz: Come fight me in Mexico!

But also insists the only person he's thinking about is Ross Pearson.

"UFC already knows I wanna go to Mexico, Mexico wants me there, and I'm looking for a big win here. I wanna call out Nate Diaz and challenge him to come down to Mexico and fight me in Mexico. That's the fight I want. I've been wanting to fight him for a long time. He's a crybaby, he's a complainer, he's an ingrate, I wanna give him a little lesson of humble pie. I wanna take him out in Mexico."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight brawler Diego Sanchez insists he's not looking past UFC Fight Night 42 opponent Ross Pearson, buuuut is still going to call out Nate Diaz for a 155-pound war south of the border. Assuming he tops the "Real Deal" this weekend in Albuquerque, "The Nightmare" wants to get on the UFC 180 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card on Nov. 15 in Mexico City (more on that here), and looks to make it a clean sweep against the Diaz Bros. Sanchez holds a unanimous decision win over older brother Nick from back in 2005. This potential match up doing anything for ya'?
