Recently Conor McGregor took to Twitter and requested the UFC for another custom belt. While some people thought the demands were funny, others felt they were valid. However, there was one person who was clearly not impressed with McGregor’s comment. That person was UFC welterweight fighter and McGregor’s long-time rival, Nate Diaz.

McGregor had earlier asked UFC for a custom ‘The McGregor Belt’ and now ‘The Notorious’ took to Twitter and asked for another one. The former UFC champion asked for an ‘RMF’ or “The Richest Motherf**ker belt”. Diaz responded to the tweet and mocked McGregor, although he then told the UFC to make the belt.

Diaz wrote, ” UFC go ahead and make this Lil bi**h a belt or 2 with rubies or whatever he wants on it I think he really needs it. I need his confidence hi so he can do well, so go ahead and make the belt if you would like too. And go out there and gettem champ..”

The response was interesting, and certain words could have fans speculating on the Diaz vs McGregor trilogy.

Why is there a rivalry between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor?

Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor were two of the best UFC welterweight fighters back in 2016. The pair first fought each other at UFC 196, which ended in a Diaz victory via submission. The fight was the start of a feud that would only increase in the coming years.

Later in 2016, the pair met for a rematch at the main event of UFC 202, this time though McGregor had the last laugh as he won the match via majority decision. Since then, everyone has been expecting a third fight between the two fighters.

Even though the third fight between them has never happened, their battle outside the Octagon has been as interesting as they have never missed an opportunity to diss the other.

The duo has bouts scheduled for the summer, as Diaz will fight Leon Edwards in the UFC 262 co-main event. Meanwhile, ‘The Notorious’ will fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

Hence, their trilogy will be on the back burner, but fans will hope that the fight eventually takes place. Though for now, we can enjoy the epic Twitter banter between the fighters.
