Nate Diaz rips Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier rematch: ‘I already smoked these two’

Nate Diaz doesn’t appear to be fond of a possible rematch between two of his rivals, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.

Although nothing has been made official by the UFC, both McGregor (20-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) and Poirier (26-6 MMA, 18-5 UFC) publicly have stated they want to be booked for a rematch of their UFC 178 fight from September 2014 as soon as possible.

Thing appear to have hit at standstill in terms of reaching a finalized date, and Diaz might see an opening for an interception.

Diaz took to social media on Tuesday to criticize the potential McGregor vs. Poirier fight and went on to hint he would be ready to fight either man in a 165-pound bout (via Twitter):

Let’s don’t get it twisted I already smoked these 2 now they play fighting …

165 Lbs 👊🏼

Diaz, of course, has a well documented history with McGregor. The pair fought in two of the biggest fights in UFC history, splitting results at UFC 196 in March 2016 and UFC 202 five months later. A trilogy bout has always seemed inevitable, but it has yet to come to fruition.

Poirier, meanwhile, was booked to fight Diaz at UFC 230 in November 2018, but it never happened. Both men have given sides on why it didn’t. Poirier expressed that Diaz hit a contract dispute with UFC brass and was never going to compete before he made himself unavailable due to injury, while Diaz claims “The Diamond” simply pulled out of the fight and nothing more.
