Welcome to Midnight Mania!
This may come as a major shock, but Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor are still bickering on social media. Before launching into their latest exchange, a bit of context: Diaz made it clear recently that he has little to no interest in fighting a UFC “rookie” like Khamzat Chimaev. When McGregor’s recent quote about being excited to compete again spread today, Diaz kindly offered to play matchmaker for his rival and would-be foe.
Let him fight kamrat that be a great fight to make— Nathan Diaz (@NateDiaz209) December 3, 2021
He needs a easy new guy to fight anyway he can taper back in and see if he can even still fight at all
Great idea Nate
“Let him fight kamrat,” Diaz tweet in regards to McGregor. “That be a great fight to make. He needs a easy new guy to fight anyway he can taper back in and see if he can even still fight at all.”
McGregor answered the call, responding “No problem, b—ch.”
Soon afterward, Chimaev — fresh off his own Twitter attack on Diaz — joined the fray, seemingly agreeing to the match up.
Gonna be a good fight good luck to u both and stay safe out there I need both you lil bitches healthy and strong for this one @ufc— Nathan Diaz (@NateDiaz209) December 4, 2021
In response, Diaz wrote, “Gonna be a good fight good luck to u both and stay safe out there I need both you lil bitches healthy and strong for this one.”
Otherwise, Diaz and McGregor traded barbs one final time, and that’s a wrap on this week’s episode of Mac vs. Diaz madness!

The only real new question here: is there even the slightest chance of UFC booking McGregor vs. Chimaev?
I’m not really a gun guy, but my instincts are telling me this is not proper firearm safety.
Aljamain Sterling is really skilled at throwing a wide mix of kicks.
Classic COVID-19 era matchmaking, turning a disaster into an entirely new bout!
How long until we actually see Hasbulla make his walk to the Octagon? It has to happen. I’d rather watch the pseudo toddler fight than the some of the bizarre old man boxing matches being made.
How the turn tables ...

Anderson Silva has some of the greatest reaction time in UFC history, so this must be working!

Win or lose, Spike Carlyle can be counted on to provide the entertainment once that cage door closes.
