UFC superstar Nate Diaz “tried to jump”, boxer and MMA fighter Anthony Taylor, Heavy fighter Stephen McCaugherty said in a recent interview.

The alleged incident occurred after Bellator 238 in January 2020 when “Pretty Boy” Diaz ‘teammate beat Chris Avila by majority vote.

Taylor is preparing to fight Avila again, but this time it will be in a boxing ring. They will compete during the Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury undercard which will air December 18, 2021 on Showtime PPV. Taylor spoke to us about the post-fight incident with Diaz and Avila before the rematch. Listen to what Taylor had to say on the YouTube video below:

Taylor said his beef started with Avila and finally Diaz on the night of Bellator 228 in September 2019 when future Bellator world featherweight champion AJ McKee knocked out Georgi Karakhanyan.

“I saw Nate Diaz and Chris Avila,” said Pretty Boy. “I went to Nate. That’s before Nate [fought] Jörg Masvidal. So I went on like, ‘Hey, good luck in your fight.’ I walk up to Chris, try to shake his hand, just be polite because he’s with Nate. ‘Hey how are you? I am Anthony. ‘ He just looked at me, crazy dog, didn’t say a word, just crazy dog.

“Then I said, okay, we’re going to fight. So they staged this fight. I hit him. He and Nate didn’t like the fact that I beat him and they were trying to take a back seat to me in Bellator. So give it a try, he and all his little skrap pack team tried to make me jump and the beef was really hot right now. For example, he was very disrespectful to me and my team. He used vulgar names to my coaches and teammates. He just thought he was really tough because he was with Nate and his boys.

“So when I see him, it’s on. If I see Nate, it’ll go down. There will be a big scene with me and Nate. “

Taylor, who specifically boxed Tommy Fury during the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Showtime Boxing PPV in August 2021, went on to say that Avila used Pretty Boy’s trainer “vulgar names” during their fight.

“I beat him, we went into the back room where you were doing your medicine.” ‘I’m the champion. I’ve got a winning streak of five fights. I won.’ So, he, Nate, they got upset. Nate tossed me a bottle of water, not surprised. And four of the five guys ran up to me. Luckily the Bellator team was there, I was with one of my teammates.

“From then on, they stopped the brawl. Since that day I hate him and Nate. I don’t like Nate. “

Taylor then turned his attention to Avila, the man he’ll be boxing next month.

“Chris Avila is just that drummer boy,” said Taylor. “He’s one of those tough guys who want to be tough, with the boss saying, ‘I’m going to beat him up’ and you have this little guy in the background: ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah’. As he says he will beat him up. This is Chris Avila. “

Taylor said that he and Avila don’t like each other and that he plans to “physically injure” this man on December 18, 2021.

“And I told him if I see you and Nate it would be before the press conference,” Pretty Boy said.

During the interview, Taylor revealed that he was done with the MMA competition. He has had his last couple of fights as a boxer and has no plans to ever return to an MMA cage again.

Instead, he dreams of becoming a professional wrestler, which he will aim for in 2022.

Pretty Boy said that maybe he will have a few more boxing matches and then he will be done boxing too. And for a future opponent, he mentioned UFC veterans Jake Shields and Gilbert Melendez. Both Shields and Melendez are part of Diaz’s famous “Skrap Pack”.

Taylor admitted that he probably doesn’t have enough pull to land a fight with Diaz, so the next best thing for Pretty Boy would be to pit himself against Diaz’s good friends. You can check out Taylor’s entire interview with Heavy McCaugherty below:
