Nate Diaz takes shots at Conor McGregor ahead of UFC fight

Published 1 Comments

Conor McGregor was recently the victim of some shocking drugs claim by Jose Aldo’s trainer in Dedé Pederneiras.

Those claims weren’t taken with any great seriousness ahead of McGregor’s next battle in UFC, as the Irishman heads towards a date with Nate Diaz.

The claims from Aldo’s trainer in the build-up may have taken away some of the focus from the title fight, but Diaz is fixated on one thing and that’s beating McGregor again.

McGregor is known around the world and Diaz is one of the UFC performers who resents this. McGregor's rise to the top of UFC has been meteoric, having gone from prospect to champion.

The Irishman has amassed a loyal following of fans around the world and Diaz insists this is more to do with UFC’s massive promotional push rather than McGregor’s talents in the Octagon ring.

During a frank and honest interview on Fox Sports recently, Diaz took aim on the subject of McGregor’s popularity.

“Well that's what the UFC did,” Diaz told Fox Sports. “They pushed his fan base and put all their energy and exposure on him. Like I said, I've been fighting a long time.

“They haven't been (doing it for me) and they now can't deny it. Look, they got me up here with you because I beat the guy.”
