Nate Diaz Savagely Responds To Dana White After He Teases Trilogy Bout, Calls Conor McGregor 'Fragile'
| Last updated
Nate Diaz has hit out at Conor McGregor after Dana White teased a blockbuster trilogy bout between the UFC stars.
The UFC president talked up McGregor vs. Diaz 3, with the Irishman closing in on his Octagon return.
"We're still working on [the Diaz-Poirier] fight. That fight's not done yet. I wouldn't count out a Conor-Nate 3," he told TMZ Sports.
"Listen, I'd be shocked if that fight didn't happen again."
But Diaz reckons McGregor needs to get some wins under his belt before clashing for a third time.
He also branded the 33-year-old 'fragile' following the fighter's leg-break in his last bout against Dustin Poirier.
"Conor’s gonna have to get him some wins and prove he’s not so fragile first," he tweeted.

The Stockton star hasn't fought since his defeat to Leon Edwards last summer, but is eyeing a return to action.
What's more, he's looking for one more fight before walking away from the sport and he has an opponent in mind.
He wants to fight Poirier, which is in the works according to White.
Diaz said: "I would like to fight Dustin Poirier. Like now. Like I've been trying to. If there's any mix-up it's him, and them, and the game.
"I want the fight now. What's up Dana White? Let's get this retirement fight cracking so I can get out of this fight game. I'm done with it."
Diaz vs. Poirier was scheduled for UFC 230 back in November 2018.
However, 'The Diamond' was forced to withdraw, with the bout scrapped. Fast forward four years, they could finally meet.
Like Diaz, Poirier is also coming off a loss having lost to UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.
