Who Would the OGz Add? – The OGz are feuding with LAX and right now LAX has the numbers advantage thanks to Diamante; who has been off t.v. for the interim. So in speaking to Fightful.com on a conference call last week, Homicide revealed who he’d pick to combat Diamante, saying;
Diamante would be my number one. She’s the craziest of anybody. She’s the type of girl who will punch somebody out. I don’t even know what side she’s on. Hopefully the OGz side if she’s smart. When it comes to girls, a legend in the streets is Mercedes Martinez. She’s a legend and she’d be down with the click.
This was a press conference featuring both Homicide and rival Ortiz, and even Ortiz agreed with Homicide, saying;
Diamante all the way man. Respect to Mercedes, too. She’s a true veteran in the game.
Even Josh Mathews echoes this sentiment, saying that he’d love to see her in IMPACT.
