Nate Diaz appears to have mocked longtime rival Conor McGregor by pointing to the horrific leg injury the Irishman sustained in July of this year. Diaz confirmed he wouldn’t fight McGregor “until his leg grows back” and scored some victories to prove he can still fight.
Taking to his official Twitter account, MMA legend Nate Diaz posted the following tweet where he snapped a photo on Conor McGregor. The Stockton native also confirmed that he would like to fight for the “January Card,” which many believe is the long-awaited high-profile UFC 270 fight card that takes place on January 22. Diaz’s tweet read:
“I’m not fighting Connor until his leg grows back and he’s outperforming some people so we know he can fight until then can I get a card in January @ufc thanks”
Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor suffered a horrific leg injury in his last fight. His much discussed triple match was against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July. The lightweight bout saw the Diamond win via a first-round TKO after McGregor was unable to continue due to a lower leg injury.
