Conor McGregor Goes Back And Forth With Nate Diaz And Jeff Novitzky
When Conor McGregor tweeted ‘No more Mr. Nice Guy’ back in February, he wasn’t lying. In the last three weeks, the former two division UFC champion has reignited his feud with Nate Diaz and renewed his rivalry with Dustin Poirier.
While his recent war of words with Poirier fizzled out and their rubber match was made official for UFC 264, McGregor’s animosity with Diaz is showing no signs of ending.
When McGregor followed up a previous suggestion that the UFC should make ‘The McGregor Belt’ by proposing that the promotion should make two belts in his honour, Diaz was quick to throw shade at ‘this lil bitch’ for his comments.
Although McGregor didn’t respond, a day and a half later, he took to social media once again to hit out at the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and the Senior Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance for the UFC, Jeff Novitzky.
In the last few hours, McGregor followed up his comments by accusing Diaz of being a ‘steroid user’.
Not surprisingly, it didn’t take Diaz long to respond to McGregor.
McGregor then hit out at Novitzky and USADA again. Before responding to ‘little juice head turkey’ Diaz.
Diaz, who has been competing in triathlons since 2009, replied by mocking McGregor’s FAST programme, his lack of ability to ‘learn and grow’, and his lack of conditioning in his fights against Floyd Mayweather, Khabib Nurmagomedov and his rematch with Dustin Poirier earlier this year at UFC 257.
In response, McGregor suggested that Diaz launches his own fitness programme which he could call ‘Diaz Slow’.
In the last hour, Novitzky has also responded to McGregor, suggesting that he watch back his press conference in 2019 where he addresses Diaz’s run-in with USADA.
We’ll update this article with anymore back and forth between McGregor, Diaz, and Novitzky.
Diaz is set to return to the Octagon at UFC 262 against Leon Edwards at welterweight.
Do you think it’s about time that Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz settled their beef with the rubber match?
After promoting his McGregor Fast fighting gloves, the Irishman hit out at coach Trevor Wittman, who has designed his own gloves.
Which in turn prompted some back and forth between McGregor and Justin Gaethje. And immediately after, Ali Abdelaziz.
