Conor McGregor has once again taken a shot at one of his biggest rivals in the fight game, Nate Diaz. Fight fans, UFC fans in general, are no strangers to the rivalry between McGregor and Diaz and by the looks of it, the two men could possibly be on the verge of another social media war.
In the aftermath of the UFC 251 pay-per-view, Nate Diaz took to Twitter and praised Rose Namajunas and Max Holloway for their incredible performances at UFC 251, despite Holloway being unable to secure the win and regain the UFC Featherweight Championship.
Responding to Diaz's tweet was non-other than Conor McGregor, the Irishman took to Twitter and replied to Diaz by writing the following:
"Shut your bi***a** up"

Will we witness Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz 3?
As of now, the chances of a trilogy fight between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz seems unlikely, with the former UFC Double Champion having announced his retirement from the fight game.
Diaz was also last seen in action at UFC 244 when he lost to Jorge Masvidal and it remains to be seen if he will return to Octagon action or not. Nevertheless, as of now, Diaz vs McGregor 3 isn't happening anytime soon but if you do wish to enjoy some hard-hitting action, there are still three fight cards left for Fight Island.Published 13 Jul 2020, 05:44 IST
