Conor McGregor Brutally Trolls Nate Diaz During Rant About Nick Diaz's UFC Comeback

Conor McGregor has aimed a savage dig at Nate Diaz during his assessment of Nick Diaz's thrilling UFC comeback fight against Robbie Lawler.


Nick competed for the first time since January 2015 when he took on former foe Lawler at UFC 266 last weekend.

But his Octagon return ended in defeat as the 38-year-old was stopped in the third round following a barrage of punches.


Lawler landed a devastating counter hook that caught Nick flush, before connecting with a brutal uppercut.

McGregor has since reacted to Diaz vs. Lawler II - and in doing so, he couldn't resist taking a shot at his arch rival.

He tweeted: "Nick/Rob was a good fight. 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."

In another tweet, he added: "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.


"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."

McGregor then called out Nate's 'p**s' boxing skills compared to Nick's: "Nate your boxing is p**s compare to nicks.

"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."

Nate hit back, tweeting: "U can't fight at all member your leg ?"


Of course, McGregor and Nate are 1-1 in their memorable two-fight series.

A trilogy bout has been mooted, with both men appearing to want to run it back for a third time.
