While Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz have been surprisingly quiet in regards to trash talk leading up to their rematch at UFC 202 next Saturday.

Despite that, McGregor took full advantage of the opportunity to lob insults at Diaz during a UFC 202 media call this week. ‘Notorious’ compared Diaz at UFC 196, where the pair first fought, to Homer Simpson in an episode of ‘The Simpsons’.

MMAFighting has the quotes:

“You ever see that episode of The Simpsons where Homer starts boxing?” McGregor said. “He’s competing, he’s just sitting in the ring and getting the head slapped off him. Boom, boom, boom. And then just the guy can’t punch him no more. And then Homer tips him and the guy falls over. That was similar. That’s the way Nate was in that fight. He was like Homer Simpson. He just took the shots until I couldn’t hit him no more. He’s gonna be no different this fight. He’s gonna just take the shots and hope that I can’t hit him no more. Only, I’m gonna be still there poking him in the face. So, I look forward to it.”
