The Stockton native shifted his focus from Twitter to Instagram, responding to McGregor’s poke at him earlier when the Irishman uploaded a picture of the pair of them facing off.
While responding to the beef, Diaz uploaded a picture to Instagram in which the 36-year old is visible celebrating after submitting Conor McGregor in their first fight at UFC 196.
“Throwback,” wrote Nate Diaz as the caption for the renowned image.
The Gracie jiu-jitsu black belt also uploaded a picture of him submitting Conor McGregor.
The rivalry, which originally started when the two were scheduled to fight at UFC 196, has continued over the past few years. There was no love lost in the recent exchange on Twitter between Diaz and McGregor as the Irishman attacked ‘The Stockton Slugger’ with some mean words.
‘The Notorious,’ while hinting towards a trilogy fight, said:
“Now add 30lbs of muscle on to me and say ding ding in a Dublin accent.”
Nate Diaz quickly responded with his own insults.
“Bruh u can’t walk or fight now why u talkin sh*t? we talk later,” replied Diaz.
The beef continued as the two rivals continued to exchange harsh words on Twitter:
Diaz, while referring to Conor McGregor’s injury, which he suffered against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, said:
“I’ll fight you in 4 years when your healed up”
Conor McGregor recently took to Instagram to share his injury update
Conor McGregor provided his fans with an important update about the state of his injury. In a video uploaded to his official Instagram account, ‘The Notorious’ was visibly delighted to be walking for the first time since his surgery. He wrote:
“Today is a momentous day!!! I walked for the first time since surgery. Bearing 50% of my big body weight! I also done it in the brand new “Irish Green” Virgil Louis Abloh’s! #youknowit @themaclife_style. A long way to go yet but a massive personal boost for me today! Thank you all for the continued support everyone. God bless, happy Saturday. @eliteorthosport @hmillipt @louisvuitton @lvmh @virgilabloh @psg @sergioramos @jacobandco @theblackforgeinn”
A medical suspension will see Conor McGregor out of action until 2022. Upon his return, several fights would make sense for the Irishman, including a trilogy bout against Nate Diaz.
