Gray Maynard isn't the only one with a bout hanging over his shoulder.

Nate Diaz, who meets Maynard on Monday in the main event of UFC Fight Night 20 in Fairfax, Va., is already fired up for another fight when he gets done with Maynard.

And while much of the buzz surrounding their fight has focused on a possible title opportunity for "The Bully," Diaz has his own hit list.

"I would like to fight [Tyson Griffin] no matter what," said Diaz on a conference call promoting the Jan. 11 event. "He's a b*tch. I don't even like that guy. [Expletive] Tyson."

They both defeat Diaz very easily, imo.

i cant stand the diaz brothers, although nate was always the one i could handle a little more. stuff like this makes him look like a 12 year old and its sickening to me, hype the fight but dont act like a whiny child...amateur hour stuff right there.

why you hatin on diaz? c'mon homie 209 209!!!!! lol

i like the diaz brothers but as much as i know it sounds like bs and possibly hype or whatnot they are usually pretty classy dudes after fights. at least nick not sure about lil diaz. but honestly i see what he is saying about title shot contention. he already beat maynard once and i would probably feel the same way. but diaz will have to back up his words monday night which is easier said then done. as far as griffin he shouldnt be worried to much unless he has the same gameplan in every fight or he trains exactly the same for all his fights. im hopin nate can pull this one off but im not sure if he is going to. probably maynard via wrestling and probably by decision.

Class.....not exactly what the Diaz bros are known for, but whatever. If he doesn't pull off a quick sub then both of those fighter's will make it a long night for Nate who would probably end up on the wrong side of a UD.

It doesn't even make sense to me for Diaz to fight Tyson, and especially Gray. He's way below them in the rankings. But I want to see a Tyson/Nate fight anyway just so Tyson can beat him and shut him up already- ohhh no he switched gyms gtf over it

I think he's hilarious what's the problem with this? He doesn't like the guy and wants to fight him so what's wrong with him calling him out? Sure he didnt have to call him a bitch and all that but thats the way Nick and Nate are. I find it pretty entertaining.
