Watch Nate Diaz Confront Trash-Talking Conor McGregor Fans With The Help Of Jimmy Kimmel

The long anticipated rematch of Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz is popping off in under three weeks, as the match will headline UFC 202 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. McGregor will attempt to regain his UFC Golden Boy status after being upset in shocking fashion in UFC 196 this past March with a second round rear naked choke by Diaz.

Recently, when McGregor was asked by a reporter about what he categorized as a ‘quick tap’ in the initial fight, McGregor momentarily let go of his pompous persona and quipped back, “I’d like to see you in there, my friend, yeah? Talking about quick tap.” That subject is still a bit touchy.

Diaz was famously only given 11 days to prepare for their first fight, and when he got word, he was reportedly down in Cabo ripping shots of tequila. Diaz has had a full camp to train for McGregor this time around, and it remains to be seen if McGregor is capable of besting his nemesis.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
