Michael Bisping has slammed Nate Diaz over his "bulls**t" excuse for losing to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 earlier this month.
Diaz, 34, was unable to continue in the fight after two nasty cuts he picked up at the hands of Masvidal, who secured a third-round stoppage victory and captured the BMF title.
But the 'Stockton Slugger' argued that he planned to change his tactics later in the fight to tip the scales back in his favour, despite being largely dominated by Masvidal in the contest.
However, UFC legend Bisping has rubbished Diaz's claims and launched a scathing attack on him.
The 40-year-old said on the Michael Bisping Podcast: "Let me tell you this and let me ask you a question.
"This is a statement and a question, let me know what you think.
"You go out there you say, 'I'm gonna fight.' You think, 'I know I'm gonna develop a game plan where I'm gonna conserve my energy. I'm gonna turn it on in the later rounds.'
"Well, you go out there and this guy is coming at you like a madman, and he's beating the f**k out of you.
"He's dropping you to the floor. He's making a mockery out of you in front of the entire world by beating the s**t out of you.
"Let me tell you when somebody's beating the s**t out of you and you're a world-class fighter, you don't go, 'No, it's good. It's good. I'm waiting until the later rounds.'
"You fight back because that's what we are. Inherently, we're fighters. You're f*****g coming at me, you're dropping me, you're beating the s**t out of me.
"Beating me so bad to a point where the referee's calling in doctors and they're looking at this like they might potentially stop the fight.
"You don't go, 'Nah, man, I'm gonna wait for another two rounds and then turn it on.' No, you start fighting right then and there."
Bisping continued his brutal attack on Diaz by drawing inspiration from boxing legend Mike Tyson.
"Once again to quote the great Mike Tyson, 'Everybody has a game plan until you get punched in the face,' or punched in the face repeatedly, dropped to the floor and nearly knocked out on multiple occasions," he explained.
"Yeah, f**k that, that's bulls**t."
Nick Diaz, who admitted that he could return to UFC in 2020, has since called out Masvidal over comments he made about his younger brother.
And the 35-year-old BMF champ fired back at both of the Diaz brothers in a hilarious Scarface-inspired video.
