Cerrone: Diaz Done F*cked With the Wrong Cowboy

(“You got a pretty mouth, Nate.”)

During Steve Cofield’s Vegas-based ESPN Radio show today, Donald Cerrone recalled an incident he had recently with Nate Diaz,  and to put it lightly, he isn’t impressed with the level of disrespect his UFC 141 opponent showed him.

According to Cerrone, the confrontation happened at the open workouts for UFC 137 and he had no warning that it was going to go south quickly when he approached his teammate and friend Leonard Garcia who happened to be talking to Nate at the time.

Here’s what “Cowboy” says went down:

 ”Leonard’s my best friend; he’s my brother and he was over there talkin’ to the dude — if someone doesn’t like you, you’re not gonna talk to their best friend, you know what I’m sayin’…. you’re not gonna hang out with them — so Leonard’s over there talking with the dude, and I said, ‘Oh shit, I’ll go over there.’ They were laughing and joking around so when I go over and introduce myself and go, ‘What’s up Nate? I’m ‘Cowboy,’” Cerrone explained. “He fuckin’ slapped my hand away and called me a punk-ass motherfucker and told me to ‘get on.’ I was like, ‘Shit, alright.’ I don’t know what to say to the dude. I don’t know what his point… I guess he doesn’t want to be cordial. He just wanted to be a punk and… go ahead.”

He says that he was so taken aback by Diaz that he found himself at a loss for words at the time and that Diaz quickly exited the room after the incident happened, but points out that when they’re locked in the cage together December 30, there’s nowhere Nate can run.

“I was getting ready to fight Dennis Siver and then he walked away. He just took off after that. It kind of caught me by surprise. I don’t know anything about the guy. I just know that [he and Nick] just wake up pissed off all the time for no reason. It just seems like they’re always mad. Whatever he does to get his mind ready for the fight, it must be it.”

As Cofield points out, Cerrone has used the experience as motivation to train hard for the fight and he affirmed it during the countdown show.

“If you want to talk shit to me, you’re just gonna enrage me and piss me off,” said Cerrone. “So feed my fucking flame. That’s what I say. Let’s go!”

As far as Nate’s older brother goes, Cerrone couldn’t resist taking a jab at Nick’s incoherent ramblings at the press conference following his fight with BJ Penn.

“I was exploding into laughter on some of the comments,” he said. “I was waiting for someone to take the mic away from him, like, ‘That’s enough before you completely ruin yourself. That’ll be enough out of you.’ I was just surprised he kept going on about compensation and no one knew what the fuck he was talking about.”

my best friend's aunt makes $70/hr on the laptop. She has been out of work for 6 months but last month her check was $8183 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read this site NuttyRich.cöm

I think Cerrone is an absolute cunt. The only reason he has any fame at all was because of that stupid tapout show. The cheating prick then dropped dirty for steroids in his first fight in the WEC and was somehow allowed to keep his job (any other zuffa fighters allowed to keep a job after that?) . He was disrespectful as hell to Varner, a fight in which Cerrone caused the fight to end with an illegal shot, they still allowed it to go to the judges and he lost, and he ran his fucking mouth for months. WEC tried so hard to get him in as the lightweight title holder before they merged and failed. I see Diaz exposing this long building hype train.

The Diaz brothers are both pissy disrespectful like punks and both will lose their upcoming fights.
Donald Cerrone ain’t no damn Takanori Gomer. And Carlos Condit ain’t no damn KJ Noone.

Some damn sense made with this post ...... Respect earns respect ..... disrespect earns a busted up pumpkin!!

. sensitive from you this morning? That's not like you. Humm. OK, for you, and as a Xmas gift. I take it all back. I hope we can all read about Cry-some-more-rone 2-3 more times this year...

fuck you,xeno. Consider that a slap you insignificant stain!
XENOPHON- December 23, 2011 at 9:01 am
This is the 2nd time we heard about this....what gives CP?
Cerrone used to rate higher with me, now he is losing some of his sheen. If anything, it sounds to me that Nate got inside his head with the paddy-slap.
A slap is a trick used on against a mental midget....Someone out to tell Cerrone that so he can stop making it an issue

Ce-Ro-Ne! Ce-Ro-Ne! Ce-Ro-Ne!
It doesn't matter how The Donald chose to introduce himself. He's a fighter, Nate Diaz is a fighter and there should be fucking respect when you go over to introduce yourself in a friendly manner. Heck, whether their fighting or not doesn't matter, we live in a fucking society.
The Diaz brothers are both pissy disrespectful like punks and both will lose their upcoming fights.
Donald Cerrone ain't no damn Takanori Gomer. And Carlos Condit ain't no damn KJ Noone.
yeehaaaa !!

So basically Nate asked a Cowboy to 'get on'?

@BryanF Haha good one! Whatever happened to sunSHIIIIIINE?
Nintendong- December 23, 2011 at 4:23 am
No way Cerrone doesn't win this scrap. He is way too durable and rugged for Diaz.

I see the Cowboy putting the boots to lil Diaz late in the second.
gruge- December 23, 2011 at 2:17 am
Fuck it, im sick of both of them, I realy want to like them coz there both realy good fighters, but im just so bored with there whole attitude.

I realy how that Cerrone kicks the shit out of him, and I hope Condit does the same.
BryanF- December 22, 2011 at 11:17 pm
you go get some donald cerr-OH-NAYYYY!!!

diaz is going to destroy cerrone.
Yazloz18- December 22, 2011 at 9:36 pm
I have never liked Cerrone. Other than bagin Brittany Palmer the guy has never been high on my list of "Shit that guy is awesome". I have never liked that Cowboy nickname and attitude and his borderline homosexual relationship he has with Leonard Garcia on his isolated ranch, but to introduce yourself at Cowboy is just a douchey thing to do. I hate the Diaz brothers as well but Donald probably deserved whatever happened for introducing himself that way
SnackDaddy- December 22, 2011 at 9:18 pm
This is the first time i'll be rooting for a Diaz brother. Yeah, this Donald 'The Cuntboy' Cerrone just rubs me the wrong way. Cocky ass prick.
Liverpunch- December 22, 2011 at 8:04 pm
@dugmouth It's still real to you isn't it? I might be one thing if MMA fights had never been hyped by some kind of manufactured "bad blood," but they have and they will continue to be. Could their dislike be real? Yeah, maybe...who cares? It's going to be a great fight regardless. December 22, 2011 at 7:49 pm
I hope Cerrone puts on the best fight of his life to destroy Nate Diaz.
dugmouth- December 22, 2011 at 7:25 pm
i gotta agree with WeekendTroll, Cerrone is gonna stomp Diaz a new mud hole. was that good enough scripted "fighting words"? seriously it's silly to compare pro wrestling match hyping with mma's ability to have 2 men who genuinely dislike each other, and might have a streak of mental instability running through their family tree, talk ill of each other.
dillweed- December 22, 2011 at 7:06 pm
why doesn't DW just get it over with and start handing the fighters the mike and give them scripted "fighting words" before they fight, there are really lots of great marketing and fight building techniques they could learn from the wwe, why stop here?
Liverpunch- December 22, 2011 at 6:49 pm
This shit gets my dick hard in a completely heterosexual way. Both fighters have exhibited a great amount of technical striking considering their longer reaches and both can be pretty deadly on the ground as well. Nate has stronger BJJ, everything virtually identical.
Drewimus- December 22, 2011 at 5:30 pm
Nate's last fight was fantastic, but Cerrone is much faster than Gomi. He also has infinite endurance and is very technical.

Diaz can take a good amount of punishment, though, so it will be a great battle. Cannot friggin' wait! Hurry up Christmas MOVE!!
skeletor- December 22, 2011 at 5:09 pm
This is gonna be a great fight. I am a Diaz fan for life but I like Ceronne allot. All I know is that if Cowboy is expecting a postfight brawl (which he should) he could do worse then have Garcia in his corner.
IronClad- December 22, 2011 at 4:38 pm
Noname - Good work.
Get OFf Me - You got it backwards, my friend. Nick Diaz is at 170 cuse he's scared of Cerrone. Ok not really, but Cerrone will KO lil Diaz standing. Its gonna burn barns for sure.
Get Off Me- December 22, 2011 at 4:21 pm
Cerrone is at 155 because he's scared to fight Nick Diaz.
