Khabib Nurmagomedov's and Conor McGregor's war games are still active on social media despite them meeting inside the Octagon at UFC 229, and now Nate Diaz is looking to get himself involved.
Earlier this week, McGregor mocked some of his rivals in an Instagram post, with the two main targets being Khabib and Paulie Malignaggi, who was his controversial sparring partner in the build-up to his fight vs Floyd Mayweather.
In the post, Notorious said to his rivals 'Don’t be a b****,' while also adding on his fight with Khabib: "Every single round b******* to the referee. He was even b******* in the fourth round from mount position."
This forced the UFC Lightweight Champion to respond on his social media accounts, as he replied to McGregor: "You will live with this shame all your life, bi...#tapmachine #mactaper" with a GIF of the Irishman tapping to his submission at UFC 229.
Now, Nate Diaz is looking to get himself involved.
In his tweet to Khabib, Diaz referenced a brawl which occurred between the fighters' teams at a World Series of Fighting event in 2015. The Diaz brothers clashed with Nurmagomedov's team in the crowd at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Nate said: "I slapped you in your head you and your team didn’t do s*** ... Live with that ur all p******."
Khabib has since responded to the tweet and has said: "You was hiding behind security and ran away coward, it’s clear on the video. We just smashed your team that night you punk."
Diaz replied: "Be real. You know what happened live with it 😊👋"
Diaz hasn't fought inside the Octagon for UFC since he faced and lost against McGregor at UFC 202 in August 2016.
The Stockton lightweight was scheduled to face Dustin Poirier last November at UFC 230. However, the fight was called off after Poirier sustained an injury. It's unclear as to when, or if, he will fight in the UFC again.
If he does want to return, fans would love to see him go one and one with Khabib in a fair fight inside the Octagon.News Now - Sport News
