On Thursday evening, Matt Hughes commented on Nick Diaz's ridiculous 5-year suspension with wording that some people didn't appreciate. The former welterweight champion turned UFC executive sent out a string of tweets where he called Diaz a 'punk' that shouldn't have expected leniency, and this didn't sit well with Matt Mitrione.
