Anthony Pettis Throws Shade: 'Nate Diaz Ain't Sh*t'

Tom Szczerbowski/Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports Nate-DIaz-Anthony-Pettis-MMA-UFC-FloCombat
Anthony Pettis is known for his electrifying fighting style that earned him both the UFC and WEC lightweight championships, but the former 155-pound king isn't shy with his words either. 

Speaking with FightHype, Pettis was asked about UFC star Nate Diaz, and "Showtime" didn't mince his thoughts. 

"Bro, Nate Diaz ain't shit," Pettis said. "Me and Nate Diaz had a lot of issues... I was the champ in the UFC and the WEC, and Diaz was calling me out. He got lucky in the fight with Conor (McGregor) and got the win, but, dude, Nate Diaz ain't shit. He ain't shit." 

Diaz and Pettis have a long-standing beef stretching back years, but, much to the disappointment of fans across the globe, the two have never squared off inside the UFC Octagon. 

Currently, Pettis is slated to fight Dustin Poirier on Nov. 11 in the main event of UFC Fight Night 120 in Fairfax, Virginia, but could Diaz be next? 

Let's just say we #wouldwatch.
