Nate Diaz wants The Rock to know that he could get “The Stockton Slap” too.
After losing to Jorge Masvidal by doctor’s stoppage due to a cut over his right eye, Diaz directed his frustration at everyone from “Gamebred” to the UFC and even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who presented Masvidal with the $50,000 BMF title at UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden early Sunday morning.
“If you’re the baddest motherf—r, you gonna take that as a win?” Diaz said during his post-fight news conference. “And f—k The Rock too. I saw him smiling with Masvidal. He can get it too.

“(he Rock’s) on that side, f—k him,” he continued, referring to Johnson and Masvidal both calling Miami home. “I’m on the West Coast side. Mike Tyson should have been here anyway. He’s the baddest man on the planet, right? He should have been the one.”
After taking a moment to cool down, Diaz sort of backtracked on his harsh stance on The Rock, but let the box-office sensation and former WWE Superstar know that he could still get his hands.
“I’m too hard on The Rock,” Diaz said. “You guys caught me at a bad time. The Rock’s cool, I like “Ballers” (Johnson’s HBO show). But he picked the wrong side, so he can get it too. He can get his ass whipped too, straight up. With all due respect, he can get it too.”
While Johnson hasn’t offered a retort just yet, Diaz and Masvidal did express their desire to run it back with a rematch since their UFC 244 main event ended on a doctor’s stoppage.
