Diaz backs McGregor’s bid to have two belts on the line against Poirier

Nate Diaz has urged the UFC to create two belts for Conor McGregor's fight with Dustin Poirier, as per the Irishman's request.

McGregor and Poirier are poised to collide for a third time on July 10 at UFC 264 with both fighters having one win each to their name.

Ahead of the highly anticipated contest the Notorious has asked the UFC to create two belts – and Diaz has backed the request.

McGregor said on Twitter : "Let's do two belts actually @ufc. Champ Champ always does two.

"We've got 'The McGregor Belt' currently in creation, and now we've git the all new 'RMF' belt. 'The Richest Motherf***** Belt'.

"This way we can put both the rubies and the emeralds to good use."

Diaz responded by saying: "@ufc go ahead and make this lil bitch a belt or 2 with rubies or whatever he wants on it.

"I think he really needs it. I need his confidence high so he can do well so go ahead and make the belt if you would like too.

"And go out there and gettem champ…"

Diaz and McGregor have a long standing rivalry having fought at UFC 196 and UFC 202.

The former will return to the Octagon in next month’s UFC 262 co-main event, where he is set to take on Leon Edwards.

McGregor meanwhile had appeared to call off his trilogy bout with Poirier after a heated spat on Twitter.

UFC chief Dana White has declared that the fight will happen however.
