When Floyd Mayweather Facetimed Nate Diaz To Mock Conor McGregor
"The enemy of my enemy is my friend." That exact theory played itself out when Floyd Mayweather and Nate Diaz face-timed to take a dig at Conor McGregor.
Back in June 2017 McGregor and Mayweather's rivalry had started and there were talks of a fight between them, but no deal had yet been done.
In the build up to the fight Mayweather made a call to the one man who'd beaten McGregor at the time, Nate Diaz.
The pair were on Facetime together with 'Money' telling the 'Stockton Slugger,' "I see what you did to him, I'm going to put the finishing touches."
Mayweather also tells Diaz that he thinks he won the second fight against McGregor.
Mayweather and McGregor went on to confirm their fight just a week later and started a summer trading barbs at each other, as the press tour to promote the event took in several dates across the world.
Unsurprisingly the undefeated American went on to win their fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, stopping the UFC star in the 10th round after dominating for most of the fight.

Diaz fought McGregor twice in 2016, with both men winning one each, and the Stockton Slugger was then out of action himself for three years until earlier this year.
He defeated Anthony Pettis at UFC 241 but at UFC 244 he lost to Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title. Many fans would love to see the third installment of Diaz vs McGregor, the trash talk alone would be worth it.
