In the aftermath of McGregor Mayweather probably the most asked question is where does McGregor go from here. We most often hear Diaz’s name thrown around given the fact that they were both interested in triology fights prior and also that Khabib Nurmagomedov is unlikely to make weight for the same division.
Nate Diaz was there in Vegas for MayMac – to support Mayweather and he was none too pleased even getting into a tiffy with former UFC fighter Brendan Schaub over how successful McGregor was in the boxing debut.
Still Diaz is not done saying his peace. Here’s what he just said:
“He punched himself out the same way he lost in the UFC there was no learning goin on,” Diaz wrote. “Overpromotion bulls**t get off the nuts this the shit I’m talking about. Bruce Lee would’ve never lost like that.”
Indeed the original posting by UFC does have a bit of a “spin” to it.
On the other hand Diaz is determined to take 20 Million $ for a Conor McGregor fight.
His longtime boxing match told submission radio:
“I know (Diaz) wants to fight McGregor cause that’s the only money-maker right there. I mean, Dana White offered him fights, but you know, come on. I mean, you’re gonna give him chump change? He’s worth more than that. And so he’s waiting for McGregor. And McGregor wants to fight him too, so now that this (Mayweather fight) is over with, let’s do it. UFC’s making a whole lot of money, a whole lot of money and they’re pocketing it. They’re giving more to McGregor, so it’s not fair because it takes two in that ring to draw a crowd – I mean, a good two fighters. It’s just like Mayweather when he fought Berto. It was not even sold out at all. It was embarrassing. It’s because that guy couldn’t draw a crowd. See, that’s what I’m saying, it’s the fighters that draw the crowd, and Nathan and McGregor, third one would be outstanding. Everyone knows that. So he needs to get paid at least $30 million easy.”
