Nate Diaz Blasts Conor McGregor Over Defeat to Floyd Mayweather

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 5, 2017

Nate Diaz had some pointed words for his rival Conor McGregor on Tuesday.

The Stockton, Calif., native issued a response to a social media post from the UFC that was captioned by the quote, “I never lose, either I win or I learn.” McGregor entered the boxing realm on Aug. 26, losing to pound-for-pound great Floyd Mayweather via 10th round TKO at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

“He punched himself out the same way he lost in the UFC there was no learning goin on.. #overpromotion bullshit get off the nuts this the s—t I'm talking about,” Diaz wrote on Instagram. 
“Bruce Lee would've never lost like that. #realninjashit”

Diaz and McGregor have squared off twice in the Octagon, with Diaz winning via second round submission at UFC 196 and McGregor taking a five-round majority verdict in their rematch at UFC 202.

While it’s unclear if and when McGregor would return to the UFC, a trilogy bout with Diaz could be one of the most lucrative fights the Las Vegas-based promotion could make. Diaz’s longtime boxing coach, Richard Perez, recently said his fighter would need to make at least $20 million for such a matchup to come to fruition.

Diaz has not competed since falling to McGregor in their rematch on Aug. 20, 2016.
