Nate Diaz just bested Anthony Pettis in style, in command through the entire three-round bout at UFC 241 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.Diaz hadn't fought for three years so there were question marks over how good he could be against Pettis, who entered their welterweight fight on a high having knocked out Stephen Thompson in wondrous fashion, last year.Advertisement
But it was Diaz who forced the action and Diaz who dictated the pace as the Stockton native won a unanimous decision with three scores of 30-27, using his victory speech to challenge Jorge Masvidal in an East Coast vs. West Coast gangster battle.
Masvidal, also 34, went viral in July because he concussed Ben Askren with a highlight-reel flying knee after just five seconds at UFC 239.
"I know my man is a gangster," Diaz said as Masvidal laughed and pointed cageside. "But he ain't no West Coast gangster."
