Nate Diaz and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor have fought twice, with Diaz getting the win by submission at UFC 196 and McGregor getting the win by decision at UFC 202.
As far as a rubber match goes for the two fighters, the Stockton native simply isn’t interested.
“For one, I never ever said I was waiting for a third fight with Conor McGregor,” Diaz said on The MMA Hour. “I never said that. People think what they wanted and said that I wanted another fight with Conor. I already whipped Conor’s f*ckin’ ass. He should want a fight with me. I gotta light a fire up under his ass? I don’t want a f*cking third fight. F*ck Conor. He can f*cking fight himself.”
Diaz hasn’t competed since the second fight with McGregor, while McGregor went onto defeat Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to win the UFC Lightweight Champion.
The Stockton native also feels that his Irish counterpart is nothing more than a bitch.
“He’s the f*cking bitch,” Diaz said. “You’re the f*cking bitch, Conor. You f*cking got your ass whipped and you’re running around like, ‘I’m the two-belt champion, I overcame adversity.’ I’m like when? When you were quitting in that second fight? In the third round, he was making sounds like, ‘ugh, ugh.’ He’s like crying, you know what I’m saying? When you’re a fighter, you understand. You know when somebody is being a little bitch.”
Whether he’s fighting McGregor or some other opponent, it will not happen in 2017 as Nate said during the interview on The MMA Hour that he isn’t competing at all this year.
