Nate Diaz sends a message to Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier
Taking to Twitter, Nate Diaz decided to put both Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier on notice via one of his latest tweets. The self-proclaimed West Coast gangster warned the fans to not get it twisted, as he claimed that he has already smoked both McGregor and Poirier.
Additionally, Diaz wrote that both Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will be play fighting inside the Octagon come December 12th. The 209 fighter already holds a historic win over Conor McGregor, however, his scheduled fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 230 was eventually canceled.
Here is what Nate Diaz wrote on Twitter:
Diaz and McGregor have shared the Octagon on two different occasions and in their first meeting, the former handed the Irishman his first loss in the UFC. The former UFC Double Champion eventually avenged the defeat by beating Diaz in a rematch, which was one of the best five-round fights in UFC history.
As things stand, Conor McGregor's return to the Octagon still hasn't been confirmed. The chances are the former UFC Lightweight Champion will return to the Boxing world with a dream clash against Manny Pacquiao.
As for Nate Diaz, the former BMF title contender was initially expected to meet Jorge Masvidal in a rematch in early 2021, but that fight has been turned down by Dana White since then.Published 14 Oct 2020, 00:20 IST
