Conor McGregor is loving the latest bombshell news surrounding Nate Diaz’ unexpected withdrawal from UFC 244.

Diaz, who was expected to take on Jorge Masvidal for the ‘BMF’ title at Madison Square Garden, revealed earlier this week that he had tested positive for ‘elevated levels’.

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and the UFC later confirmed that the Stockton local had tested positive for “trace amounts of a prohibited selective androgen receptor module (SARM),” a performance-enhancing substance that has been banned by WADA since 2008.

With Diaz’ headlining bout against Masvidal now in serious jeopardy, ‘The Notorious’ sent — and later deleted — a Tweet in which he claimed to be the real ‘baddest motherf-cker’ in the UFC.

“There’s only one Bad Mother F*cker in this game and he is the weight jumping, sport crossing, country invading, whiskey drinking Irish animal typing this tweet right now,” McGregor posted (h/t Abhinav Kini of The Body Lock MMA). “Right here from his presidential suite at the Ritz Carlton in downtown Moscow. See you all soon.”

McGregor then followed up by naming Diaz’ teammates, Gilbert Melendez and Jake Shields, who also tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs earlier in their careers, as well as implying that Khabib Nurmagomedov is a drug cheat.

Given that Diaz only tested positive for trace amounts of SARM, the MMA veteran has been cleared to fight at UFC 244. Although this is good news, the former UFC lightweight title challenger has refused to fight until the UFC and USADA fix this issue and clear his name of any wrongdoing.

“So until UFC, USADA or whoever is F—KING with me fixes it, I won’t be competing. I’m not gonna play their game and try and hit it or keep quiet, as they suggested. I’m not going to have my name tainted as a cheater like these other motherfuckers who keep quiet until after the fight so they can get paid. F—k*n cheaters.

“I don’t give a f—k about some money over my dignity and my legacy.” Nate Diaz stated. “I’m not staying quiet and figuring it out after the fight. That’s cheating. So fight game, I’ll see you when I see you. The realest baddest mother f—ker in the game.”
