Fan-favorite Nate Diaz has dropped a massive bombshell of a tease for the Conor McGregor trilogy fight.

Nate Diaz hints at Conor McGregor trilogy date

Diaz has recently been involved in a public dispute with the UFC over contract issues. Appearing ready to step inside the cage, Diaz expressed his frustration at not being able to get a match. It was reported that the Stockton native was on the last fight of his contract when he went back and forth with Dustin Poirier online.

After the promotion’s interest in the Poirier fight died down, it seemed likely that the UFC was shelving him for a third showdown against McGregor. Despite Diaz’s continued insistence, UFC did not risk letting him complete his current deal without securing the contest.

In a cryptic message shared on his Twitter, Diaz announced a date and weight limit for what looks to be his trilogy fight against Conor McGregor.

“July 30th 170lbs”

‘Mystic Mac’ has been recovering swiftly from a horrific leg break injury he suffered in his last outing against ‘Diamond’. He did not take long to respond to the tweet.

“Are You getting smart you fat skinny tick?”

Diaz declared that the third fight was on.

“THE TRILOGY. ITS ON.

@TheNotoriousMMA strap that leg up.”

Not one to let things go without getting the final word in, McGregor tweeted with a final jab.

“Strapped bro. Sig sour jellies”

Diaz followed up in classic Nate Diaz fashion.

Kamzits and Conor are on the injured pussy list so I don’t know why they’re talkin shit when they broken

 

Diaz vs. McGregor 3: years in the making

The first time the pair clashed inside the octagon was back in 2016. ‘The Notorious’ was originally scheduled to headline the card with Rafael dos Anjos, who pulled out from the event citing a broken foot.

UFC explored all options to find a replacement for the two-division championship. Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo was sought first but he declined. Top contender Frankie Edgar turned down the opportunity to take the contest as well.

Just 11 days out from the event, UFC announced that Nate Diaz will be stepping in to take on McGregor at welterweight. Many people were surprised at the outcome except for the man himself. Diaz defeated the Irish superstar via submission in the second round.
