Nate Diaz is not a fan of Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor for suggesting that their potential trilogy would be for the vacant lightweight title.
In the lead-up to UFC 257, both McGregor and Poirier thought their fight should be the belt, but that was not the case. Instead, UFC president, Dana White was holding out hope Khabib Nurmagomedov would return.
However, after UFC 257, it was confirmed the champ would not return. Poirier then hinted at running things back with McGregor for the belt, which Diaz was not a fan of.

It should be no surprise to see Nate Diaz blast both Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor given their history. McGregor and Diaz have already fought twice and many thought the trilogy would happen, but it has not happened as of yet. As for Poirier, he and Diaz were supposed to fight with one another at UFC 230 and both men accused the other of pulling out of the fight.
It is interesting to see Nate Diaz starting to tweet about the UFC more and it could lead to him making his return. Ever since he lost to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244, many wanted to see him return, but nothing piqued his interest. Recently, though, Dana White has hinted that Diaz will return at lightweight against a top contender. The opponent is still not known, but perhaps, Diaz gets in there with either Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier depending on how the UFC matchmakes the division.
