Nate Diaz takes aim at Dustin Poirier for deciding to set up trilogy fight with Conor McGregor

‘You do what your told by your daddies u lil b*****’: Nate Diaz takes aim at Dustin Poirier for deciding to set up trilogy fight with Conor McGregor instead of showdown with him

  • Nate Diaz has called out Dustin Poirier for fighting Conor McGregor once again
  • Diaz wanted a fight with Poirier after McGregor’s loss to ‘Diamond’ at UFC 257
  • In an Instagram post Diaz called Poirier a ‘little b****’ for not offering him a fight 

Nate Diaz has fired a torrent of abuse at Dustin Poirier for appearing to ignore his wish for a re-match and fighting Conor McGregor again instead.

Diaz has been looking for a fight since UFC 257, when McGregor suffered the first stoppage loss of his career against ‘Diamond’. 

The Stockton fighter was critical of McGregor at the time and said his second-round loss proved he did not deserve a third crack at Poirier ahead of him. 

Diaz went on social media to hurl abuse at Poirier for the decision

Diaz said the ‘stars had aligned’ for him to fight Diamond next, adding that he was also game to fight lightweight contender Charles Oliviera.

However, UFC president Dana White’s announcement yesterday that he was looking to set up a trilogy fight between Poirier and McGregor in the summer sent Diaz over the edge. 

He posted a picture on Instagram of himself holding McGregor in a submission move from a previous fight, and wrote to Poirier: ‘Don’t forget who started this G s***.

‘The real uncrowned King. No rematches ever given. Dustin you do what your (sic) told by your daddies u lil b****.’ 

Poirier was quick to respond to Diaz’s taunt, pointing out that he did indeed get a re-match with McGregor in September 2016, which he lost. Diaz beat McGregor at UFC 196 in March 2016.

‘You lost the rematch Nathan. 1 was given lol,’ Poirier wrote in the comments below Diaz’s post. 

Diaz and Poirier were supposed to fight at UFC 230 back in November 2018, but the event was cancelled.  

Diaz has not fought since UFC 244 in November 2019, when he challenged Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title but suffered a medical stoppage loss after suffering dreadful cuts to his eye.
