It all started on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, when Diaz responded to a tweet from McGregor who shared a photo of himself in a staredown with Nate, writing: “Now add 30lbs of muscle on to me and say ding ding in a Dublin accent.”
“Bruh u can’t walk or fight right now why u talkin s***?” Diaz tweeted. “We talk later.”
Then, “Notorious” fired back at Diaz, writing: “Who can’t? Come thru and see you little skinny fool you be smacked up and rolled up you bum. Calis mine.”
Diaz then went off on McGregor.
“Nah b**** u should’ve learned how to not break ur leg when I checked ur s*** and u crutched outta the fight with me,” Diaz replied. “And how u gonna fight me when u can’t run for your life this time wit ur broken a** you lost the last fight and ran for the hills just like kabob ur a p**** too.”
And McGregor shot back.
“He fled the cage and I boxed his whole family around,” McGregor wrote. “And nobody finished me mate. I broke MY leg. No one or nothing else done anything to me. And anyway. Don’t worry bout them. I’m here in Cali months doing what I want. It’s 3 on the street now mate f*** your little sport.”
“It’s just business remember your the sports man I showed Uguys this street s*** I fought both your teams out the cage before any of Uguys realized the real fight game sporty lil b******,” Diaz replied.
The Irishman hit back at Diaz: “I’m on a hair trigger mate. You stay where you are in hiding if you know what’s good for you bro. God bless ya kid have a good day.”
“F*** you,” Diaz replied. And McGregor answered: “Fuck the whole city I am [Gorilla emoji] #bye.”
“That means I’m the double triple champ of this whole s*** f*** all you p******,” Diaz continued.
“Ps you jumped ship on your country bitch go home don’t you got any friends,” Diaz wrote.
