Conor McGregor isn’t taking criticism from Nate Diaz over his UFC 246 fight without comment, challenging Diaz to a third bout. Diaz live-tweeted McGregor’s fight with Donald Cerrone, mocking McGregor and calling the bout a “weak as f**k” fight as you can see below.

In response, McGregor fired back and, in the post-UFC 246 press conference (per MMAWeekly, called Diaz to face him in a conclusion of their would-be trilogy, saying, “Let’s go Nathan. Let’s go brudda. Number three… it’s always here!”

The two fighters each have a win against each other, with Diaz beating McGregor at UFC 196 via submission and McGregor winning the follow-up at UFC 202 via majority decision.
