Conor McGregor may have a problem with one Diaz sibling, but it’s not Nick Diaz.

McGregor is known for trash talking pretty much the entire roster. One just needs to look at his recent squabbles with fellow UFC lightweight Rafael Fiziev.

And of course, among his many frequent targets is longtime rival Nate Diaz who he has shared the Octagon with twice, with plans for a trilogy fight always there in the future.

However, McGregor has no problem with Diaz’s elder brother Nick.

Conor McGregor: Nick Diaz Is A Real Fighting Legend

Diaz recently gave a motivational speech to cancer patients at a hospital which was shared by one of the hospital’s staff members.

When McGregor caught wind of the tweet, he could only heap praise on the Stockton native.

“Real fighting legend.”

It’s rare to see McGregor praise a fellow fighter, especially the sibling of arguably his biggest rival.

But such is the legend and respect that Nick Diaz earns that even the Irishman has nothing bad to say about him. There seems to be a mutual respect between the pair as well, especially going by this press conference interaction between them.

Diaz made his return to the Octagon for the first time since January 2015 when he faced Robbie Lawler in a rematch last September. Diaz would eventually suffer a third-round TKO defeat.
