Fans of the UFC will remember that UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor and his rival Nate Diaz shared an intense feud before their March 5 fight. Only 11 days long, the beef was created when UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos broke his foot.
When ‘RDA’ was removed and Diaz put in his place at UFC 196, a rivalry like very few before was born. In the end though, it was Nate Diaz who had the last laugh. He submitted McGregor after a wild two rounds at UFC 196.
But now the two outspoken stars have been paired again, rumoured heavily to go down at UFC 200. At the Irishman’s request, reports indicate that the bout will once again be held at welterweight.
With so much time between now and the July milestone pay-per-view, you just know there’s going to be a ton of trash talk going on. The rivalry never really died after UFC 196, but what we did see was a stream of memes, much like Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, mocking ‘The Notorious’ for his endless talking before the fight.
But now they’ve been (pretty much) booked to face off again in the summer, Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor have started firing shots at each other once again. Skip to page 2 for the trash talk!
