Nate Diaz was in Mexico City, Mexico supporting his friend and teammate, Gilbert Melendez, for his lightweight bout against Eddie Alvarez, which co-headlined last night's (Sat., June 13, 2015) UFC 188 pay-per-view (PPV) event.

And you knew he wasn't happy when the judges' decided to award Alvarez a split-decision victory over "El Nino" after three rounds of action (see it again here).
MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani caught up to a heated Diaz, just moments after a minor backstage altercation with former UFC lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis, and revealed that Alvarez challenged him to a fight prior to the showdown against Melendez.
"Nothing happened there man. I want to talk about that fight. I think Gilbert Melendez won rounds one and two and I don't think Alvarez did much of anything. So, I don't know how he won that fight, he broke his whole shit. His whole face is broken, Gilbert tried to go to the press conference, but they sent him home and I think Eddie Alvarez went to the hospital. You tell me who won? I guess that's how it works that's the name of the game. But, that little bitch said he wanted to see me next. So, whatsup then? Now he's going to run off and hide. Does he want that? Obviously not, he's at the hospital. Then you have Pettis over here walking around like he's tight, too, but all of these motherfuckers are scared to look at my face. These fools are all fronting, man. They want to act like they will fight somebody, but then they look at the ground when they walk by me and act tight in the corner. He didn't say shit, he put his head down, he just walked by me. I called him (Pettis) a bitch right here. But he talks that shit on the internet but acts like he don't see me."
Of course, Diaz and Pettis have a well-documented beef that dates back a few years. As for his beef with Eddie, it seems it's just starting as he had a final message to the former Bellator champion by saying, "Gilbert won, so fuck you Eddie."
Diaz didn't give an exact timetable for his return to the Octagon, but said if anyone is willing to step up to the plate, he'd be more than willing to oblige, Alvarez and Pettis included.
