All of you fighters who are calling out guys in smaller weight classes and dropping down to fight-Benson Henderson has a bone toothpick with you. And I have a bone to pick with myself for randomly googling the phrase ‘a bone toothpick with you’. The first three links google gave me included the words ‘cowboy toothpick’, ‘raccoon penis’ and ‘yank em out and whittle em down’. That officially ruined the chorizo y huevos stuffed breakfast burrito I was about to put in my mouth. I really hope that toothpick Bendo had in his mouth during the Nate Diaz fight wasn’t a ‘cowboy toothpick’.
Whatever kind of toothpick it was, fighting an entire fight with it in your mouth and not choking on it is some cowboy style badassery. So is calling out the top guy in the weight class above you that some think is one of , if not the greatest fighter of all time-GSP. Bendo is full of cowboy badassery and he doesn’t think it’s all that badass to call someone out to fight that is in a smaller weight class than yourself. Yesterday he took to twitter to express his frustrations with it:
Some think this was a dig aimed specifically at Anthony Pettis for not waiting around to finally get his title shot with Henderson and instead calling out and dropping down to fight Jose Aldo in the featherweight division. I just wonder if he tweets with that toothpick in his mouth too.
