McGregor refers to Nate Diaz as Mayweather’s ‘bitch’

Conor McGregor went after every major name in combat sports in a Saturday interview on pay-per-view, and Nate Diaz got the worst of his ire.

When asked about putting his rivalry with the Stockton scrapper to bed in a rubber match, “The Notorious” launched into an expletive-laced condemnation of Diaz, referring specifically to a December exchange on FaceTime between he and Floyd Mayweather that was far too chummy for McGregor’s liking.

“Nate’s a bitch. Nate’s a f-cking bitch, and let me tell you why,” McGregor said, according to MMAFighting’s Shaun Al-Shatti. “I had the biggest respect for Nate – and I still have big respect for (his brother) Nick, he’s out doing his thing – but when (Nate) took that phone call or that video call from Floyd Mayweather, and was like, ‘hello Floyd’s fans,’ he was Floyd’s bitch that night. I was like, you f-cking p-ssy. You absolute p-ssy.

“When he had that video call, he should’ve been on the other end of that line, and when Floyd was saying ‘you made McGregor tap out,’ he’s like, ‘yeah I did,’ and Floyd is saying, ‘I’m going to finish the job’ – he should’ve said, ‘shut your f-cking mouth or I’ll strangle you too,’ and then post that everywhere. And then all of a sudden, it would’ve been like, f-ck Floyd. It would’ve been me and Nate again. But he was Floyd’s bitch that night. He was Floyd’s employee that night. So look, f-ck Nate. F-ck Nick. F-ck the Diaz Brothers. And if you want to be down with the Diaz Brothers, then f-ck you too.”

McGregor was clearly expecting Diaz to take a page out of his playbook and throw some barbs at Mayweather to put the rubber match’s wheels in motion. But since Diaz failed to follow suit, the Irishman says he can take a number.

“I was expecting a different situation, but I couldn’t believe it when I watched it. I watched like 10 minutes of it, and Floyd’s like, ‘hey Nate, say hello to my fans.’ You f-cking bitch. It’s the biggest bitch move I’ve ever seen. So whatever, it is what it is. Now you’re back in the queue. Now you’re at the back of the queue.”

He may have made it clear a boxing match with Mayweather was his next order of business, but McGregor maintained he and Diaz will one day make their rivalry a trilogy. The lightweight champ evened the score with the 31-year-old via majority decision at UFC 202, and while he suspects Diaz is still suffering from the ill effects of their five-round war, he remains optimistic they’ll eventually settle their beef in the Octagon – perhaps even with his title on the line.

“Don’t get me wrong, me and Nate will throw down again, 100 percent. It’s one apiece. We’ll finish it off. I’d imagine it will be for the lightweight world title, 155. It could be like a skeleton wrapped in cling film. If his team is wise, they’ll talk him out of it. They’ll say, ‘you’ve made some money, your face is drooping to the left, your speech is slurred. Chill now. Enjoy the money.’ But they’re not the most intelligent people, so I’m sure me and Nate will go again.”
