You can always count on a Diaz brother to speak his mind. It might not always make perfect sense, but it's usually controversial at least. The latest in a long line of Diaz-isms comes from little brother Nate, who called out UFC 185 main event fighters Anthony Pettis and Rafael dos Anjos for their respective injuries suffered before and during the March 14th event. Here's what he had to say on Sqor, which was put out on Twitter as well:

The post that Diaz linked to is from The UG. Dos Anjos partially tore his MCL about three weeks before the fight and considered pulling out, but opted to stay in and it paid off with a title win. Pettis suffered a fractured orbital bone from an RDA punch early in the fight.

Diaz (17-10), who held out from the UFC for a year in a well-publicized spat about money, came back from those issues to fight the aforementioned Dos Anjos in December, where he dropped a wide unanimous decision. The former title challenger has lost three out of his last four bouts overall.
