Stevie Ray is coming off what may be the biggest win of his UFC career at UFC Fight Night 108, when he defeated Joe Lauzon by decision.
Ray wouldn’t mind facing Boston native Paul Felder next, but when he brought up Marc Diakiese’s name on Twitter, all heck broke out.
Felder would be the first to respond and everything remained civil at this point
Bro I have nothing but respect for you. Ur a martial artist like me. I would love to throw down in Scotland!!! Let's make that card bro!! https://t.co/xqWCNJsqSY— Paul Felder (@felderpaul) May 2, 2017
However, when Diakiese became aware of what Ray said about him, would go on Twitter as well and that’s when things erupted.
@StevenRayMMA that's why you're still begging it with sponsors, my money had to be right first!! you better be preparing for me now lad.— Marc Diakiese (@Marc_Diakiese) May 2, 2017
@Marc_Diakiese So ur saying I'm begging for sponsors but u won't fight what they offered you haha bit of a contradict are we? Go fight someone I know— Steven Ray (@StevenRayMMA) May 2, 2017
Another UFC fighter in Paul Craig joined in on the fun as well, assisting Diakiese in his Twitter war against Ray.
Of the four fighters involved in the Twitter war, only two of them are currently booked for fights at this time. Paul Craig is going to be facing Khalil Rountree Jr. at UFC Fight Night 113 and Marc Diakiese is taking on Drakkar Klose at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale.
