Nate Diaz shared with us his reaction to today’s Mayweather/McGregor fight announcement and of course, it was nothing short of hilarious.
Nate Diaz holds the distinct honour of being the only man to defeat and finish the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor inside the UFC octagon, submitting him by way of rear-naked choke at UFC 196 and today, despite the Irishman’s history-making fight against Floyd Mayweather becoming a reality, Nate used the opportunity to remind the world exactly what transpired on that night in March of last year.
Nate’s win over McGregor, of course, catapulted him to a newfound level of stardom but in the time since that now-iconic win, he has only competed once, losing a close decision to Conor at UFC 202 in the rematch.
With Mayweather and McGregor now set to dominate virtually every combat sports publication for the next few months, credit should be given where it is due to the semi-retired Nate Diaz, who took full advantage of the announcement and made a characteristically hilarious post at the expense of both of the men who are set to compete.
