Nate Diaz Reacts to Conor McGregor’s Insane UFC 223 Bus Attack

Nate Diaz Gives Hilarious Reaction to Team McGregor’s Crazy Attack on the UFC 223 Press Bus…

Conor McGregor is in the deepest trouble of his life. The UFC superstar has been caught on about a dozen camera, launching dollies, trash cans, and bottles at the UFC 223 press bus. The scandalous event took place outside Brooklyn’s Barclay Center as fighters were boarding to return to their hotel.

In incredible scenes, McGregor can clearly be seen to be throwing a giant dolly at the window of the bus. During the incident, Michael Chiesa suffered severe lacerations on his face after being cut by broken glass, while other fighters are in shock after being attacked by at least 20 individuals from McGregor’s entourage.

It’s believed that a verbal showdown between McGregor’s training partner Artem Lobov and Khabib Nurmagamedov could be the reason for these disgusting scenes. Since the videoes and stories started going viral, numerous fighters have given their reaction to these ludicrous events, including Nate Diaz.


Diaz is best known for his rivalry with Conor McGregor. The pair has fought twice, with Diaz submitting the Irishman in their first meeting. He lost by decision in the second, in a five-round war that was recently voted the best UFC fight of all time by the fans. However, his first target was Nurmagamedov.

“He shouldn’t have been trying to punk his boy when he was alone, like a bully. Then he expects not to get rolled on fukn rookie… And then stay on the bus. haha u guys got punked.”

Diaz’s reaction is way at odds with most people’s. The Stockton native genuinely seems more angry with the Russian for his actions against Lobov than he is for McGregor’s highly illegal attempt to destroy a bus with his bare hands. You have to love his priorities.

The Real King

Of course, Diaz wasn’t going to let it sit there. While loyalty is a trait that he genuinely admires, having grown up in a very tough environment, he was quick to remind everyone that he’s already beaten the ‘Notorious’. He wrote:

“I already slapped and punked both these guys and they teams though so that’s none of my business.”

To be fair, the Californian did shock the world when he inflicted McGregor’s first defeat in the UFC in brutal style. He rocked the Irishman with punches and then submitted him with a cool rear naked choke. Diaz rules.

Best Reaction

Needless to say, basically every professional fighter with a functioning thumb has given their opinion on Twitter by now. However, arguably the greatest reaction arguably goes to Daniel Cormier who was quick off the mark on Twitter. The UFC light heavyweight champion wrote:

“Ground plane… Take in custody… Escort to arena on Saturday to make him fight Khabib… That’s true punishment!”

Given the choice between facing an angry Khabib Nurmagamedov or sitting safely behind prison walls, I think I know what I’d take. In all seriousness though, McGregor and his teammates can expect to face serious consequences for their actions. The most immediate is that Artem Lobov has been pulled from the UFC 223 card. Legal action will follow.
