Isn't it more entertaining to watch a fight when the two guys that are standing toe to toe want to completely destroy one another?
That will be the case tonight during UFC 141 when Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone step into the Octagon with one another.
These two, simply put, hate each other.
It showed during the weigh-in when the two butted heads once again.
Diaz weighed in at 157, which is one pound over the allowed weight for a lightweight match.
How did Cerrone respond?
"I don't give a (expletive)—let's fight."
That alone should tell you how bad these two want to get it on. Diaz lost the weight regardless, but the actions speak for themselves.
Then, during the pre-fight press conference things heated up a little more.
During the staredown, Diaz flipped off Cerrone's cowboys hat which could have initiated a brawl right there on the spot.
The intensity of the "co-main event" seems to outweigh that of the fight between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem.
Cerrone (17-3) is undefeated during his time in the UFC. He recently submitted Dennis Siver in the first round of his UFC 137 fight.
Diaz (14-7) doesn't have nearly the same sort of record and has fallen to much lesser opponents.
It may have been wise of him to keep the taunting to a minimum. Cerrone will be holding nothing back during tonight's fight.
Don't expect this one to go the distance, and don't expect Diaz to be left standing.
