While Conor McGregor’s next opponent was initially supposed to be Nate Diaz, after McGregor was pulled from UFC 200 for refusing to fulfill his media obligations, talks of a potential boxing match with Floyd Mayweather quickly picked up steam.
Now, the reports have gone so far as to reveal that McGregor & Mayweather will have their boxing match in September. Throughout all of that, the UFC has been asking Diaz to sign a contract to fight McGregor sooner rather than later.
On a special edition of The MMA Hour, Diaz revealed that he believes the McGregor-Mayweather fight is being used to get him to agree to take less pay to fight McGregor.
Diaz weighed in on the situation, saying:
“I’m the only 1 out of the 3 of us that can say I’ll whip Floyd and Conor’s asses in one night,” he said, via MMA Fighting on Twitter. “I’ll call your bluff. Fight Mayweather, m———-r.”
