Conor McGregor mocked by Nate Diaz as UFC fight announcement drags on despite claim he would fight three times this year – The Sun03/05/2020
NATE DIAZ has mocked Conor McGregor on social media over the Irishman’s claim he will have three fights this year.
McGregor has already taken down Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, beating him with a 40-second KO in January.
But the Notorious is yet to announce his next battle, leading to speculation he may not make all three fights.
That’s led to scorn from old foe Diaz, who took to Twitter to point out McGregor’s lack of action.
He wrote: “What happened to your season? I was already back in by now wtf.”
Diaz and McGregor have already fought each other twice.
The American made his rival tap out in their first bout which took place almost four years ago.
But McGregor fought hard in the second fight to win it via decision just five months later.
UFC fans are desperate to see them get it on in a decider.
But it’s reckoned McGregor is looking to fight the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson.
However, that clash doesn’t take place until mid-April.
Khabib and Ferguson will likely wait until at least September before taking on another opponent.
And that would make McGregor’s chances of having three fights in 2020 very slim.
UFC fans reacted to Diaz’s tweet with glee, with one saying: “Nate, I love it.”
Another wrote: “Conor said he was starting a season and wanted three fights.
“Nate has already had his second fight in his comeback in the time Conor has yet to book his.
“All meaning Nate is open to fighting Conor.”
One added: “Love to see Nate v Conor 3 but it will literally sell at anytime.
“Meaning Conor could go out and get smoked by Khabib/Jorge, whoever and have the trilogy to fall back on.”
