LMFAO... that's something you don't hear about everyday. Shoe-FU Diaz.
reviewjournal.com -- Sports - Despite perfect record, UFC star biding time
"One former opponent, Nick Diaz, badgered him via e-mail to sign for a fight. Once the bout was signed, Sanchez said the e-mails from Diaz grew harsher and more disrespectful.
Diaz, Sanchez said, insulted his family and questioned his manhood.
"It became very personal, but it backfired on him because it caused me to train harder than I ever trained," Sanchez said.
Sanchez said Diaz was cursing at him and threw a shoe at him in the locker room before the Sept. 5, 2005, bout at the Hard Rock.
He seethed inside, but remained calm outwardly. Diaz paid the price in the ring, as Sanchez dominated in a three-round unanimous decision.
"I just wish it was a five-round fight," Sanchez said.
Not every opponent is going to react that way, he concedes, but Sanchez is the Super Bowl for the majority of the 170-pounders in the world. The zero in his loss column is an inviting target, but it's one he vows to fight fiercely to defend."
