Gray Maynard didn’t take to lightly to Chael Sonnen stating his prediction that Nate Diaz would finish Maynard in their main event fight next Saturday at The Ultimate Fighter Finale 18.
Maynard and Diaz have met twice before, splitting their bouts.
Sonnen, on “UFC Tonight,” predicted that Diaz would win via third round TKO.
Maynard, a former No. 1 contender to the UFC lightweight title like his next opponent, took to Twitter.
“I predict 1st rnd tko for (Wanderlei Silva) of Sonnen just like Rashad Evans, Anderson Silva, Jon Jones did to him,” with the hashtag credibility attached.
Sonnen is expected to meet Silva next year after they coach opposite one another on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3.
