Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz both took turns to roast Dustin Poirier after his loss to lightweight champion Charles Oliviera on Saturday night, and of course they couldn’t resist having a go at each other too.
“How Conor let Dp fuck him up hella times he sucks 🤦♂️,” Diaz wrote after watching Poirier tap to a rear-naked choke from Oliveira in the main event of the UFC’s final pay-per-view event of 2021.
Needless to say McGregor was quick to respond.
“You lanky string of piss he got lumped around and got lucky twice. That’s it. Is what it is,” McGregor said as he recalled his prior two losses to Poirier.
However, he then went quickly moved on to agreeing with Diaz that his rival Poirier didn’t perform well.
“Embarrassing night for him alright. That closed guard game. Wtf was that. Wow! Shocking. All good happy Sat night horse yupya it’s proper twelve day tomorrow 12/12. New Paddy’s Day!”
Not content to leave it at that, McGregor made another post mocking Diaz and Poirier for the fact they’ve both come up empty-handed in their attempts to win a title.
“Hella times ahhahahaa it’s hella times in the black forge inn tomorrow for proper twelve day bro. Full of it. Sauce Money. Power. Runner up champ yous two are 😂😂 at least yous can say you made championship weight before on the scales at least 😂😂that’s something hahaha.”
Diaz has one fight remaining on his UFC contract and McGregor needs an opponent for his eventual comeback fight at some stage next year after fully recovering from the broken leg he suffered against Poirier earlier in the year, so it’s possible that these two could fight for a third time in 2022.
That being said, McGregor apparently feels he should be jumping straight back into a title fight upon his return.
“So what date am I fighting Oliveira?” McGregor wrote.
