Nate Diaz Speaks On Conor McGregor/Eddie Alvarez

MMA

Nate Diaz only wants big fights. When UFC 205 was announced to be headlined by two guys that he's called out, he wasn't happy.

Diaz will be sitting on the sidelines this November at UFC 205 when Conor McGregor moves to lightweight to challenge Eddie Alvarez for that division's title. Diaz still has something to say about the UFC 205 main event and he said those things to Ariel Helwani.

“F–k them both. You know both those little bitches are afraid to fight me. That’s why they are fighting each other. And tell Dana I said get off Conor’s nuts. I left my room to that fight at 176 (pounds), so when I fought I was probably 173. Quit telling people I was a monster to make him look good. I’ve been a lightweight my whole career” said Diaz.

Diaz defeated McGregor in their first encounter at UFC 196 by second round submission, but then lost a split decision to the featherweight champion in their rematch at UFC 202. Alvarez will be making the first defense of his lightweight championship, which he won by defeating Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 90.

UFC 205 takes place on Saturday, November 12th from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York with Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor in the main event.
