Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz have one of the most bitter rivalries in mixed martial arts (MMA), so at any given moment it can all boil over, especially when it comes to the easy access of social media. After “Notorious” requested UFC create the “McGregor Belt,” he responded to a fan’s comment on Twitter who brought up the fact that the promotion had no problem creating the “BMF” title at Nate’s request.

That led to an all-out Twitter war between Diaz and McGregor:

“Isn’t that crazy! Who’s the real bad motherfucker anyway? Went up two weight divisions on a weeks notice to fight him for that fight. No hesitation. Straight onto my jet. In thru the side door. Surprise, surprise,” McGregor said regarding his fight against Diaz at UFC 196, which he accepted at Welterweight after Rafael dos Anjos bowed out of their scheduled Lightweight title fight.

Naturally, that caught the Stockton slugger’s attention, who said just like everything else between him and McGregor, he did it first.

“Who went up two weight classes in half a day notice no hesitation and not promotion about it just did it cause I ain’t no bitch how’s that Conor fuck you,” Diaz responded. “Whatever you think you did already been done by a real G Try not to get finished again,” an obvious reference to Dustin Poirier’s knockout win over McGregor at UFC 257.

In response, “Notorious” threw out another, “Who da fook is that" moment.

Once again, innocent bystander Dustin Poirier got caught in the crossfire of Diaz’s verbal venom.

“Don’t forget Dustin fucked you up. But he’s scared of me. You are both some bitches. And I slapped kabob he was scared with no counter. And he owned you so who’s the real king? Me bitch that’s who, King Nate dog,” he said.

In closing, McGregor suggested that the two men would indeed settle their differences in a trilogy fight of their own once he wraps his business with “The Diamond.”

“I forget nothing bro and you’ll see that soon enough. And don’t talk to me about a little slap in a scuffle I had them all trapped thinking they were dead,” he said about the now-infamous run-in with Khabib in New York.

“You’re the king of nothing. You couldn’t even win your own belt they made for you, let alone any other.”

For now, McGregor is hoping to finalize his trilogy with Poirier sometime in July, while Diaz will return from his lengthy hiatus to take on Leon Edwards in the five-round co-main event of UFC 262 on May 15, 2021.
