Cesar Gracie, the fearless leader of the camp that houses the infamous Scrap Pack: Nick and Nate Diaz, Jake Shields, Gil Melendez, and now Ronda Rousey, sent out a complimentary “Blow Me” Tweet to the Greg Jackson camp after they had a rough night at the most recent Strikeforce event, going 1-3 for the evening.
“Cali sends a certain team from New Mexico home winless tonight at 0-3. Dancing with the stars don’t cut it here”
Of course Ronda demolished Team Jackson fighter Sarah Kaufman, but aside from that the other victors over Jackson fighters were not even Cesar Gracie’s guys. But he said “Cali” sent Team Jackson home, so technically he’s right. Meisha Tate trains at Team Alpha Male in Sacramento. Jacare is a Black House fighter, and while it’s a stretch they do have two facilities in Cali.
It’s a desperate play on words that allows Gracie the opportunity to jab Jackson, whom he apparently isn’t crazy about. Maybe it’s because the two times his guys fought for UFC gold they lost to Jackson fighters, who knows? But it’s clear there’s a camp rivalry here. Shields lost to GSP. Nick lost to Carlos Condit, and years ago to Diego Sanchez. But young Nate is picking up the slack, scoring wins over Donald Cerrone, and Melvin Guillard back when he was still a member of Team Jackson. But going back a ways, Nate also lost to Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida.
See? This shit can go on all day and is just as moronic as the Tweet Gracie sent out. One could use such broad strokes to say, “The Dutch occupy post-war Japan with Randamie’s victory over Yamanaka.” Gracie’s “Dancing with the stars” reference is of unknown intent and just adds to the lunacy.
