Fighting superstars Conor McGregor and Jorge Masvidal were recently slammed by their UFC rival, Nate Diaz.
He recently replied to McGregor’s comments about his boxing.
The former two-division UFC champ compared Nate’s abilities to his older brother, Nick. “Notorious” called Nate’s boxing “piss” when stacked up to Nick’s, tweeting that he “made” the younger Diaz brother.
“Nate your boxing is piss compare to nicks,” McGregor tweeted on September 26, 2021. “We been fed garbage with your sloppy shots the last few years. Can see the clear difference between the two brothers after last night. Balance, composure. Another level the big bro is on to you. I made you.”
On October 15, 2021, Nate let McGregor know that he hadn’t forgotten about the Irishman’s comments. He tweeted to McGregor, saying he turned him into a wrestler when they first fought in 2016 before submitting Notorious. And in Nate’s tweet, he also slammed Masvidal, who Nate fought in 2019 for the “BMF” title.
“@TheNotoriousMMA My boxing’s piss?” Diaz tweeted. “I banked on ur face, turned u into a wrestler, and then chocked u b**** in reality your whole country and belongings are mine. plus I made that fight and u took the bait. then I made masvidals b****a**. don’t forget I make this whole s*** spin.”

McGregor Shared His Thoughts on Nick’s Return Fight Against Robbie Lawler
Nick made his Octagon return last month during UFC 266. He took on former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and fell short after three rounds, losing to “Ruthless” via TKO.
“Nick/Rob was a good fight,” McGregor tweeted on September 26, 2021. “The spin kick at the start gave the ground on Nick but he was veteran composed and was peppering lovely shots in. He just ate some big body shots and there was more coming Robbie was strong to the body it was veteran work all round. I enjoyed thoroughly.”
“The finishing sequence when the temple was clipped after the leg went, the evasion of the final shot, which was a blistering uppercut, was magic,” McGregor continued. “Look at it. Down on one knee, observing where the shot was coming from, slip/parry, and re cente to open guard safe. Ala Daly fight.”
