Paul emerged victorious over Nate Diaz in Dallas on Saturday night – Diaz having twice faced McGregor in the UFC octagon – by unanimous decision. Starting with a critique of Diaz’s performance, the conversation escalated into a blatant assault on Paul, quickly deteriorating further.
“Time to state this, the crowd’s champ isn’t impressing me anymore with his shenanigans during fights. Seen him gesture, seen him turn and walk away. It’s all worn out. Act, because you’re doing nothing! You could have been the 170lb UFC champ. Squandered. You’re achieving nada,” McGregor posted in a now-deleted tweet.
“I’ll turn your liver into a sandwich in our third encounter, mate. Straight up. Won’t even touch your face. Your performance last night was pitiful. Paul’s a joke. He’s worthless. Moving backward as if I was watching a fight in slow motion. Truly rubbish. All-around disgraceful in my opinion. #piss,” the former UFC champion continued in another deleted tweet.
Paul had his fill and decided to retort to the ex-two-division champion.
“You better hit rehab and then USADA. Keep quiet until then. Floyd made a fool of you. Dustin knocked you out. Khabib and Nate took you down. And even with all your doping, I’d finish you off for good,” Paul replied.
McGregor continued his assault on Paul with further deleted posts, resorting to offensive epithets. Familiar with online wars, Paul reciprocated by highlighting McGregor’s recent legal issues, including allegations from Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Miami.
“Getting targeted by ‘Cocaine Conor’? Stay away from drugs, kids, or you might end up in a restroom with a lady who’s not your spouse,” Paul retaliated.
“Once the cocaine wears off, McGregor…,” he added, suggesting a decline in McGregor’s condition post drug usage.
“Good on you for removing your tweets, Conor. Ping me when you’re out of rehab or prison.”
Paul sent out one more tweet responding to McGregor’s use of racially offensive language.
“Seems folks are upset because McGregor labeled me a ‘wigger.’ This is the fight industry. I couldn’t care less about what a coke-fueled, steroid-pumped, cheap whiskey-drinking buffoon says, then erases. He’s a narcissistic, egocentric, bitter addict who’s done zilch for others…”
Nate Diaz, true to his style, kept his response short and succinct, addressing not just McGregor but anyone criticizing the fight.
“Most folks are clueless about boxing.”
Following the bout on Saturday night, Paul challenged Diaz to an MMA fight in the PFL. Diaz is open to the idea of a rematch under MMA rules, but indicated that he might return to the UFC or compete under his Real Fight Inc. banner after his 10-round encounter with Paul.
Currently, McGregor is featuring in the ongoing season of The Ultimate Fighter and is slated to fight against rival coach Michael Chandler, although an official date is yet to be confirmed.
