Nick Diaz Has No Time For Nonsense… He’s Slammed Conor McGregor on Instagram For Calling Out Mark Wahlberg… 

It’s been nearly five years since Nick Diaz last stepped into a cage for an MMA fight. His last appearance was a controversial defeat to Anderson Silva that was quickly overturned to a no-contest. Silva tested positive for two banned substances, while Diaz was hit with a ridiculous ban for having marijuana in his system.

Since then there have been many rumours of his return, but it seems like the elder Diaz brother is happy in retirement. He’s running his marijuana business and making appearances at many parties. Basically, he’s having the time of his life, so why would he want to get punched in the head?

That doesn’t stop him from staying in touch with the MMA world. With his younger brother Nate set to fight Anthony Pettis in August, Nick still has an eye on the sport. And he really didn’t like what he saw from Conor McGregor on Twitter at the weekend. Check this out below.

So long story short, it all started when Justin Bieber inexplicably called out Tom Cruise for an MMA fight. Yes, the Mission Impossible superstar Tom Cruise, who is more than twice Bieber’s age. Then Conor McGregor got involved and offered to promote this ludicrous idea. And then it got even more bizarre when McGregor called out Mark Wahlberg.

He wrote:

“I challenge Mark Walhberg on the very same card. Back when mark wahlberg was marky mark, I’d’ve still slapped the ears off him and took my ufc shares back. #Shares #Streams #Dazn #Espn McGregor Sports and Entertainment.”

Now as it turns out, Nick Diaz was not impressed by McGregor’s interaction with Wahlberg. We have no idea whether or not the Irishman was serious or not – he surely wasn’t – but Diaz wasn’t joking around with his reaction. He took to Instagram to respond to the Notorious’s words. Diaz wrote on his Instagram story:

“Why would you wanna fight someone who cant fight . What a peace of sh*t !! Same as beating someone with handcuffs on.”

Not Coming Back

Meanwhile, fans of Diaz shouldn’t get excited by the idea of the Californian ever coming back to the octagon. It really doesn’t look likely. Just enjoy the memories of this former title contender, who was totally underused by the UFC.

“Our boy, Nick, he’s been retired,” Melendez told fellow ESPN analyst Chael Sonnen on the “You’re Welcome” podcast.  “I would love to see him come back, but last time I checked, he’s retired. I know If anyone could come back and do it and stay on track and everything, it’s him.

“I’d love to see him one day, if the fight is right, I think he’ll come back out, and if the contract’s right I think he’ll come back out. But last I’ve heard, he’s hung it up.”
