Nate Diaz reacts to Conor McGregor fiasco ahead of UFC 223

In a pair of tweets, Nate Diaz criticized Khabib Nurmagomedov for not expecting to get “rolled on” by Conor McGregor and his friends. Then Diaz said none of it is his business anyway.

Nate Diaz offered his opinion on Conor McGregor’s Thursday rampage in Brooklyn, New York in a pair of tweets.

Diaz, who submitted McGregor on short notice just over two years ago at UFC 196 then fell to him by majority decision five months later, initially appeared to take the side of McGregor.

On Thursday afternoon, directly following UFC 223 media day at Barclays Center, McGregor and a group of his friends attacked a UFC bus that was transporting fighters back to the host hotel. They threw various objects at the bus and even smashed the front window, injuring multiple fighters and eventually causing three bout cancellations in one day.

McGregor likely decided to make a surprise appearance in Brooklyn because earlier this week, UFC 223 headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov, who challenges Max Holloway for McGregor’s lightweight title on Saturday, was involved in an altercation with McGregor’s teammate and friend, Artem Lobov.

Diaz believes Nurmagomedov should not have confronted Lobov when the featherweight had few team members with him. Diaz added that “The Eagle” got “punked” Thursday by McGregor, who reportedly brought several friends with him to retaliate against Nurmagomedov. Diaz wrote that the Russian should have seen it coming.

“He shouldn’t have been trying to punk his boy when he was alone, like a bully,” Diaz wrote. “Then he expects not to get rolled on fukn rookie..

“And then stay on the bus. haha u guys got punked ….”

Diaz then wrote on Twitter that it’s “none of my buisness” (sp) — it appears he may stay quiet from here on out.

“I allready slapped and punked both these guys and they teams though,” Diaz concluded.

Diaz is referring, of course, to his first fight — and perhaps even the second — with McGregor, where he lost the first round, but came back in the second for a rear-naked choke upset.

He is also looking back to August 2015 when he and his brother, Nick, brawled with Nurmagomedov’s camp at a WSOF event.

Diaz has not fought since his competitive loss to McGregor at UFC 202.
