The two MMA stars are once again feuding on social media, running receipts past each other in the latest chapter of their storied online drama.
The feud was reignited on early Wednesday morning after McGregor tweeted a photo of the two facing off prior to their second fight at UFC 202 in 2016, captioning it, “Now add 30lb of muscle on to me and say ‘ding, ding’ in Dublin accent.”
The post didn’t sit well with Diaz, who fired back questioning his motive to trash talk, as the Irishman is out of competition recovering from a leg injury sustained in his last bout against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 back in July. McGregor lost to Poirier via technical knockout by way of doctor’s stoppage.
From there the back-and-forth went on with the two attacking each other online.
