UFC 246 featured the much anticipated return of superstar Conor McGregor as he brutally demolished Donald Cerrone via TKO in just 40 seconds.

Weighed in on the fight, was a common opponent who not only shared the octagon with the two but also has wins over both McGregor and Cowboy. The former BMF title challenger and fan favorite Nate Diaz.

Despite the phenomenal performance, Diaz wasn’t impressed. Diaz tweeted ‘weak as f**k’ and at Bellator 238 he addressed the topic.

“Cowboy doesn’t care about winning and losing, so [McGregor] didn’t have a very hard fight on his hands,” Diaz said.

McGregor used unique shoulder strikes which broke Cowboy’s orbital bone. The magnitude of the shots messed up Cowboy as he rammed into a McGregor head kick before getting finished via ground and pound. Cowboy looked off guard to the point where some part of MMA community thought he actually gave up.

Diaz went three rounds against Cerrone at UFC 141 back in December 2011. A young Diaz was able to get a fairly lopsided unanimous decision. Diaz also became the first fighter to hand McGregor his first defeat inside the octagon. Diaz submitted McGregor at UFC 194 back in December 2015.

As per his own comeback is concerned, Diaz gave a rough timeline as well. Diaz was a part of the historic UFC 244 ‘BMF title’ fight against Masvidal last year in November. Even though it was a controversial doctor stoppage loss for Diaz, he suffered a lopsided beating from Masvidal. However with his stock still high in the market, Diaz vows to sit back and observe first before making his comeback.

“I want to watch what happens in the next few months,” Diaz told ESPN backstage at Bellator 238.

Several options for Diaz include a rematch against Masvidal and obviously a trilogy against McGregor. Another name associated with Diaz has been of former lightweight interim champion Dustin Poirier.
