Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor aren’t exactly very friendly; upon hearing McGregor’s withdrawal from UFC 303 Nate Diaz, instead of trolling it, offered support and understanding. Nate Diaz admits that he would do the same thing if he faced a similar injury because he places a great emphasis on giving his 100% inside the octagon.

Unfortunately, fans may not get to see Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz trilogy this year. Nate will be taking over Jorge Masvidal on 6th July for a boxing clash, and McGregor may fight Michael Chandler before the year ends if all goes well.

Nate Diaz on Conor McGregor’s withdrawal

In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Nate Diaz shared his thoughts Conor McGregor’s withdrawal.

“I think it was just a minor thing,” Diaz said as quoted by “I think they made a bigger deal out of it than it is. Good idea. If I get *up, I would like to push the fight back too, but people * freak out.

I think I wouldn’t want to fight until I’m 100 percent ready to rock too, because in the past I’ve done all kinds of * I shouldn’t have done. So, I think he learned from experience and all these inexperienced people out there talking *, just speaking for their inexperience.

They’re going to have to deal with the criticism until the fight gets done, but I think it’ll happen and it’ll all be good”.
