Nate Diaz claims he would fight Conor McGregor’s “dumbass” right now. McGregor replies


Nate Diaz is looking for a fight, and it seems like a trilogy fight with Conor McGregor is on his mind.

Diaz took to Twitter on Wednesday night to express his interest in fighting McGregor for the third time, to react to McGregor’s recent arrest, along with his frustrations that he hasn’t been booked to fight at all.

” I’ll beat Conor’s stupid ass right away,” Diaz said. Diaz stated, “But he’s not capable now nor this year.

“P.S., all you UFC fighters need to stop getting arrested for stupid s***. You’re acting like animals, irresponsible little kids, get your s*** together. Please drive safely and do the right thing. F***.”

McGregor didn’t want to ignore the matter and he responded with deleted tweets on Thursday morning.



For the last several months, Diaz and one-time interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier had been lobbying to face each other. The matchup is something both men want. However, the UFC seems to have reached a deadlock as Diaz has only one fight remaining on his contract.

McGregor hasn’t competed since his UFC 264 loss to Poirier, where he suffered a nasty leg injury during the first-round doctor’s stoppage TKO. “The Notorious” has been vigorously rehabbing the injury in hopes for a return in 2022.

Diaz and McGregor each hold a victory during the two-fight series, which both took place in 2016. Diaz submitted McGregor in the second round at UFC 196, while the former two-division champion earned a majority decision win five months later at UFC 202.
