Nate Diaz To Conor Mcgregor: “I Ain’t Fighting No Trilogy, He Already Got His Ass Whipped”
Former two division champion Conor Mcgregor and undefeated Khabib Nurmgaomedov have some colorful history with veteran Nate Diaz. As “Stockton Slapper” already beat Mcgregor once inside the Octagon and to ‘Eagle’ outside the cage.
Diaz and McGregor fought twice back in 2016 had the fight world delighted with their main event bouts as well as press conference antics – at UFC 196 and 202. In the first outing, Younger Diaz submitted Irishman, but five months later he retaliated that loss with a unanimous win.

“I already told you about those guys, I slapped the shit out of both of them, They need to quit acting like them motherf*ckers are running shit. There’s one king in this motherf*cker and he’s right here.”
No matter Diaz says about this main headliner bout, for sure he’ll be closely watching this fight tonight.
“I think Conor’s got a way better fighting style,” he said. “Khabib’s scared for his life, so I don’t know how good he’s going to do with that. He might get scared and hold on for his life. I hope that’s not happening for the sake of fighting. We don’t need two boring ass champions.”
On being asked, who he’d like to see comes out victor at UFC 229, Diaz said he hopes both fighters knock each other out. That’s pretty unlikely, though he’s leaning toward whoever shows up better fight.
“I ain’t pulling for nobody,” Diaz said. “Double knockout as far as I’m concerned. But let’s get something. Let’s get a fight. No bitch-ass hold on for your life, ‘I work so hard’… That boy [Nurmagomedov] ain’t fought nobody. He went and grabbed on for his life against everybody. He fights like a scared little bitch. I’m going for the fighters in this one.”
“I’m not going for anyone, but as far as fighting style, I got for the fighters usually.”
For a trilogy, Diaz has no interest running back into Mcgregor as Californian native feels he already beat Irishman twice.
“I ain’t fighting no trilogy,” he said. “He already got his ass whipped. He can fight everybody else, I got shit to do too.”
Californian also assured that he has no interest in throwing down with a boring fighter like Khabib.
“I don’t wanna fight no boring ass fighter,” he said. “I already slapped the guy on the street and that motherf*cker didn’t do shit. And then he tried to roll up with his boys and I slapped all those motherfuckers too. Pussies.”
Nate Diaz returns to Octagon against Dustin Poirier in the co-main of UFC 230 which is set to go down November 3 from New York City.
UFC 229 features a highly anticipated lightweight title fight between current champ Khabib Nurmagomedov who’ll defend his gold against former UFC champ Conor Mcgregor on October 6th.
If Diaz gets past Poirer, there could be a chance of Mcgregor trilogy down the road.
