Nate Diaz has pulled no punches after reigniting his fierce rivalry with Dustin Poirier and calling him a "lil hoe b***h."
Poirier, 30, launched a scathing attack from his hospital bed on Diaz over claims that he would withdraw from UFC 244 amid a failed doping test.
But the 'Stockton Slugger,' who has denied any wrongdoings, fired back on Instagram Stories by posting a screenshot of Poirier in his hospital bed and saying the "lil hoe b***h hurt his p***y again."
Ex-interim UFC lightweight champ Poirier accused the American Diaz of pulling out of their fight in 2018 and slammed him for his comments about UFC stars using steroids.
Diaz, who will compete against Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title next month, shocked UFC fans after he released a statement suggesting he failed a doping test.
The UFC star said in a statement posted on Twitter: "I'm not gonna make it out to NYC for fight week next week because they say I tested with elevated levels that they say might be from some tainted supplements.
"I call false on that cause I only take Whole Food or natural food supplements. I don't even eat meat. So until UFC, Usada or whoever is F*****G with me Fixes it, I won't be competing.
"I'm not gonna play their game and try and hide it or keep quiet, as they suggested.
"I'm not gonna have my name as tainted as a cheater like these other motherf*****s who keep quiet until after the fight just so they can get paid. f****n cheaters."
Conor McGregor responded to fierce rival Diaz on Twitter, only to remove the tweet he had sent out about the Stockton native.
However, Masvidal defended Diaz by tweeting out a message in support of his upcoming opponent.
UFC superstar Jon Jones also supported him by saying he knows what it "[feels] like [when] someone is setting you up."
Masvidal and Diaz's blockbuster fight is slated for 2nd November at Madison Square Garden in New York.
