Last week, Nate Diaz made his most anticipated return to the Octagon after a long layoff of three-years. He fought against Anthony Pettis in the co-main event of UFC 241 and defeated him via unanimous decision at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
In his last fight, he lost in a close decision to Irish superstar Conor McGregor at UFC 202 back in 2016 and before that Nate Diaz had submitted McGregor in the third round at UFC 196, in what was a shocking upset at that time.
Yesterday was the three-year anniversary of their highly entertaining rematch and Conor McGregor took to Social Media to praise the Stockton native.
3 years to the day myself and this Mexican animal went to war. Congrats on the win this weekend Nate, it was motivating…
“Three years to the day myself and this Mexican warrior went to war.
“Congrats on the win this weekend Nate, it was motivating to see it for my own comeback. I don’t blame you not mentioning me for the trilogy bout post fight, you know what I’m like when I get going. Vicious.
“I loved the round three style from round one that you implemented. It’s what I was hoping you would implement for this bout and was glad to see you do it.
“I’ll be prepared for it when we go again. If we go again.
“If not, respect always. A war for the ages. No b**** talk. Just real s***.”
Conor McGregor last fought against Khabib Nurmagomedov where he lost via submission in the fourth round. On the other hand, Nate Diaz called out Jorge Masvidal after his fight at UFC 241.
