MMA Fighter Nate Diaz Laughs When Asked About His Justin Bieber ‘Beef’

If you follow MMA, you remember last year’s epic war of words between Irish fighter Conor McGregor and Stockton, Calif., native Nate Diaz. Before the fight, McGregor landed the best blows. During the fight, Diaz choked McGregor out and quieted him down for a bit. Although Nate Diaz’s defeat of Conor McGregor at UFC 196 silenced a lot of haters, some didn’t know when to keep their mouths shut.

After the match, Justin Bieber called out Diaz on social media, saying that he still thought Conor was the better fighter.


Here’s some life advice. Don’t ever call out a UFC fighter. You know the satisfying feeling you get when you pop bubble wrap? That’s how Diaz feels when he breaks bones. And you want to call this guy out?

As expected, the whole thing played out like a Taco Bell meal, which is to say the beef wasn’t entirely real. Diaz and Bieber ended up at a night club in LA, and both men — no strangers to publicity — took the opportunity to catch a photo with one another for their Instagram.

For now, the only person Diaz is concerned with is Conor McGregor, who he’s set to throw down with at UFC 202 on August 20.

“Sesame Street” Is The Latest Neighborhood To Experience Gentrification

I always had the suspicion that “Sesame Street” might not be as nice a place as it was portrayed on TV. There was that alcoholic Oscar the Grouch, who spewed hate from his garbage home. Then there was that blue guy, Grover, who never wore pants around children. Come to think of it, a lot of those pervert muppets walked around half-naked. And don’t even get me started on Aloysius Snuffleupagus! But who knew the worst was yet to hit the Street: gentrification.

This release is brought to you by the letters:
G-E-N-T-R-I-F-I-C-A-T-I-O-N.

Yep. This past week, three of Sesame Streets most beloved actors were forced out of their lifelong home. And while I’ll definitely miss Bob, it’s the departures of Delgado (“Luis”)  and Orman (“Gordon”) that really has me concerned. When the plague of gentrification sweeps through a neighborhood, it’s not uncommon for minorities to carry the brunt of the consequences. This, I believe, is exactly what happened on “Sesame Street.”

Gentrification starts with just one person.

Knowing that Sesame Street is undergoing gentrification, I can’t wait to see how long it is before children learn that “A” is for “appropriation.” Kids will learn to count by calculating how much to tip for a $9 cup of imported coffee. Maybe even those bastard muppets from Avenue Q will move in, with their jazz and their mixed drinks.

Take your progressive ideas elsewhere.

Seriously, it won’t be long before we see this hipster muppet on the show, I guarantee it.

This is 22-year old Thelonious Vanguard III. After escaping his parent’s gated community at the age of 21, Thelonious started a gourmet sno-cone business out of the back of the sweet hearse he bought with his dad’s hedge fund money. When he’s not working, he spends his free time quoting “Infinite Jest”, a book he has never read. His monthly trust fund pays for his lavish apartment on Sesame Street.

Say goodbye to your childhood.

Sadly, Sesame Street used to be a place where everyone, regardless of race or gender, was treated with respect and dignity. Luis and Gordon’s heart-warming portrayals on the show were an integral part of the relationship I developed with the show, as well as with my outlook towards other people. Now that they’re gone, I don’t know what feel.
