While Conor McGregor has earned the reputation as an expert at mental warfare, Nate Diaz believed that quite a bit of McGregor’s insults prior to their UFC 196 welterweight scrap were scripted. McGregor repeatedly called out Diaz for ‘teaching Sunday morning kid’s Jiu-Jitsu’ and ‘going on bike rides with the elderly’.
Diaz spoke on Fox Sports about why he feels McGregor’s insults were scripted.
MMAFighting has the transcription:
“It seemed like a lot of scripted stuff was going on. Maybe he was serious about what he was saying, but it sounded like some bullsh*t to me.”
While many credit McGregor as one of the greatest trash talkers in the history of the sport, what do you think of his trash talk?
