Yesterday, featherweight champ Conor McGregor went on a bit of a tirade on Twitter, firing off barbs at nemesis Nate Diaz. They included:
He has made more excuses for the first 8 minutes of our fight than I have made for the last 2 minutes of our fight. https://t.co/pukpqnF1YJ

Diaz’s response was short and sweet:
So of course today McGregor churned out some more vitriol… and this time he made a prediction!
Working the rear hand uppercut with Roddy prior to UFC 196. A shot I called pre fight. Who else can call a shot like the rear hand uppercut on a big 6 foot lurch and then go out and dig that baby repeatedly into the nose? Anyone? Didn’t think so. Mark my fucking words I am going to toy with him in the rematch. Believe that.
God bless Conor McGregor. He got his ass royally handed to him by Diaz, and yet he still believes in himself. You go, brother. You go.
