Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz had an exchange that wasn’t for those who get offended easily, but it sure was great for MMA.
It all started when Diaz booked a five-round co-main event against Leon Edwards, and McGregor decided to chime in about it. Diaz and McGregor then began a back-and-forth about who the true beast of MMA is and who scared Khabib Nurmagomedov more.
In the above tweet, McGregor is referring an interview in which Diaz said he hadn’t trained for their first bought (UFC 196), which Diaz won. McGregor wasn’t finished though.
Of course, Diaz wasn’t about to stay silent about all this. He responded by suggesting that McGregor has a cozy relationship with the UFC — though the relationship has been rocky at best.
Then, as MMA Fighting noted, it turned into a “grade-school spat.”
In truth, this is the type of stuff that makes the MMA worth following. Guys and their egos clash publicly and then eventually settle everything in the cage. Then they start the entire process over again.
