And McGregor has thrown down the gauntlet to the 35-year-old on Instagram, after the American slammed his rival on a post shared by UFC president Dana White.
White had shared a tweet from McGregor supporting the controversial UFC 249 event, which read: ‘Wishing all my fighting colleagues good health as they put on tonight’s show for us!
‘#UFC249 on ESPN+ Good luck and God speed men and women. From the competitors to the cleaners. Thank you all. Also Prayers up for Jacare Souza and team in making a full recovery.’
To this, Diaz simply replied: ‘Shut your b**** a** up’.

McGregor responded with: ‘Shut your eyelid and sign the contract’, in reference to the swelling around the eye that resulted in Diaz’s last bout with Jorge Masvidal to be called off.
The 31-year-old also revealed that a contract appears to be on the table for a third fight to eventuate between himself and Diaz. Fans were engrossed in the slugging trades between the pair in the first two bouts, as well as the constant verbal exchanges.
Should the fight take place behind-closed-doors, fans will be able to hear every word said between the pair in the octagon.
