He says Diaz is acting like he's scared...
Michael Johnson recently spoke with MMAjunkie about calling out Nate Diaz on Twitter and more. Check out the highlights:
On whether Diaz is scared: "I'm not saying he's scared, but he's acting like he's scared. I don't know if he's seen or heard anything about me wanting to fight him, but where you at, Nate? We need to get this going."
On Diaz: "I think he has a fight style that can't compete with mine. I think my fighting style is better than his. He's one of the guys that I want. If I beat him, it opens up a lot of doors for me, as opposed to sitting back and waiting or fighting guys that are the same rank. I want to fight the top guys in the division."
On his win streak: "It feels really good to bounce back from those two losses in a row and to beat three guys. That just shows me and its proof that all the hard work that I'm putting in is really starting to pay off now. We're looking at bigger and better things, like old Nate Diaz if he ever steps up to the plate."
On Diaz's ground game: "He's not taking me down. His wrestling isn't sharp enough to take me down. The only way we get on the ground is when I drop him and I jump on to finish him and I don't. That's the only way."
