Nate Diaz sends a reminder to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov by bringing up an old incident. Although these two fighters have never met inside of the Octagon, they did have a situation outside it.
Diaz caught wind of the words being exchanged between Khabib and Conor McGregor. This has been going on for the better part of a week by jawing through social media.
McGregor brought up how Khabib needs to “stop being a bitch.” On the flip side, Nurmagomedov brought up submitting him in their fight at UFC 229. This lead us to Diaz, who took to his official Twitter account.
”I slapped you in your head you and your team didn’t do s**t,” Nate wrote. “Live with that, ur all pussies.”
Back at a World Series of Fighting event in August of 2015, Nick and Nate Diaz got into an altercation with Khabib. There were bottles thrown and certainly words said during the incident. At the time, Ali Abdelaziz addressed the incident after the event to MMAjunkie.com.
“I thought they crossed paths and they talked before on Twitter,” Abdelaziz said. “I know that for sure because I know both guys. I guess they had a talk and I think Nick took a swing – that’s what people saw, I didn’t see it. And, after that, Nate came down and I tried to slow him down too and I saw someone threw a beer bottle from Nate’s camp. I don’t know who threw the beer bottle.”
