Nate Diaz is as controversial as possible!

Conor McGregor has promised to fight four times a year, and he appears to be a man of his words. The character of The Notorious is something that is to be appreciated and is thus quenching the thirst of his fans to see more of his action.

McGregor has the opportunity to fight Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden, as he attempts to be the first fighter to hold UFC titles simultaneously in two weight classes. Nate Diaz doesn’ t seem to be happy about the matchmaking.

While the stage was set for the main eventers of MSG card to confront in the presence of the media, Diaz took the privilege of making fun of the two online. McGregor and Alvarez were trying their best to mentally break down the other when Diaz went on Twitter to opine on the happening commotion in the press conference.

Diaz wasn’t at all happy at The Notorious one being gifted a title opportunity when he barely struggled to finish Diaz back in UFC 202. Despite many pro-fighters scoring the fight in favour of the Stockton’s warrior, Diaz wanted a third fight to end the trilogy. But McGregor wanted it on his terms at 155 pounds as he has already given Diaz the advantage twice to fight at 170.

While Diaz appears to have finally been paid in seven figures, the purse he thought he deserved since ages, he felt that the duo shouldn’t fight anyone else until a final showdown is granted to them. Obviously, McGregor has other plans as he stated to bag $40 million by the end of this calendar year.

So far nothing has been confirmed on Diaz’s next step, but he wants nothing but big money fights.
