Nate Diaz fights in both lightweight and welterweight divisions, but he is more familiar with lightweight bouts. In a recent war of words with Conor McGregor, Diaz brings out his frequent weight movements culture.

Recently McGregor and Diaz have a Twitter war in which the Notorious claimed that he went up two divisions to fight Diaz at 196. “Went up two weight divisions on a weeks notice to fight him for that fight,” McGregor said about his weight movement.

However, McGregor is not the one who worked with quick weight movement. Diaz also did that for another fight. The Stockton Slugger fired back with a Twitter where he explained his division movement. Nate referred to his fight against Rory Markham at UFC 111.  

The 35-year-old claimed that he went up two weight classes on very short notice. “Who went up two weight classes in half a day notice no hesitation and not promotion about it just did it cause I ain’t no bitch how’s that Conor f*** u,” Diaz explained his weight movement.

Further, Nate also claimed that he did it a long time ago before the Notorious joined UFC. Nate Diaz stated, “Whatever u think u did already been done by a real G Try not to get finished agaaaain.”

How did Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor’s Twitter war start?

It all started when BBC Sport’s MMA reporter tweeted about the five-year anniversary of the Diaz vs McGregor fight on March 6. Nate Diaz reignites feud on Twitter by replying to that tweet. He wrote, “I fu*ked you up and u never got it back, but u acted like u did.”

After that defeat to Diaz, McGregor lost two more fights against Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier. Referring to the ‘Notorious’ trilogy with Poirier, Diaz thinks that every time McGregor loses a fight, he asks for a rematch. “Now u get a rematch every time u get your ass beat like a spoiled Little bi*ch” Diaz continued his tweet harshly.

The Irishman also demanded a rematch after he lost to Diaz; he won the rematch.

Although the Twitter war started at the beginning of March, they are still on it. But McGregor does not reply frequently. It seems Conor McGregor is exaggeratedly focused on his upcoming fight.
