Nate Diaz critical over Conor McGregor’s loss to Mayweather

mma fighting conor mcgregor vs nate diaz

NATE DIAZ feels that talk of a moral victory for CONOR MCGREGOR following his recent 10th-round TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather will fall on deaf ears when it comes to view of the outcome of the fight.

Many of the  MMA fighters complimented McGregor on his first foray into professional boxing.  Facing  Floyd Mayweather which is one of the best ever to compete in the ring. Nate Diaz only had scorn for his Octagon rival. Which he expressed in an Instagram post Tuesday:

NATE DIAZ FEELS FLOYD MAYWEATHER WON ALL THE ROUNDS

Diaz stated that he didn’t see anything new from McGregor and he described the event as “over promoted bulls–t”, before capping off his short message by writing “Bruce Lee would’ve never lost like that.”

Most of the compliments directed at McGregor from other MMA fighters revolved around the total amount of punches he landed and the fact that he actually appeared to win the opening rounds before Mayweather found his rhythm. Mcgregor appeared to win first several rounds but

CONOR MCGREGOR GASSED OUT IN LATER ROUNDS

McGregor visibly tired as the fight progressed, a state that Diaz has seen firsthand given that McGregor’s cardio appeared to be an issue in both of their UFC fights.

Should McGregor and Diaz meet in a trilogy? The bad blood between them is evidently flowing as strong as ever. The mixed martial arts  fans want to see a trilogy. This is the fight that the ultimate fighter fans want and will pay to see the rematch.

Nate Diaz could get himself some ‘forever money’ like his old UFC rival.

It would appear as if the stars are aligning for Diaz to complete his trilogy with Conor McGregor.  The fight may yet take place at UFC 219 on December 30.
