Nate Diaz Calls Out Conor McGregor in Profanity-Laced Tirade

At the Go Big press conference in September, featherweight Conor McGregor told every fighter on the stage that he is the money fight in the UFC. At UFC on FOX 17 in Orlando, one by one fighters called him out and added validity to that claim just a week after he knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds.

First Charles Oliveira threw his hat in the ring though he is nowhere close to being within reach of a title shot against McGregor. Then Nate Diaz called out McGregor, though no one heard it because his expletive-laced rant was almost entirely censored.
