Diaz: Rematch UFC’s ‘gift’ to McGregor

1 Jan, 1970

Diaz says the UFC doesn’t believe he defeated McGregor.

I swear to God, the UFC thinks it was an accident or something. They think it was an accident, and now they’re saying, ‘Let’s get Nate back in there and take him out before he gets any bigger.’ I don’t think so. I’ve fought everyone in the UFC, and they better give me some m—–f—— compliments if I win this fight…Since that last fight, have you heard any praise for me from Dana or the UFC? None at all. How much praise has that m—–f—– got? I’ve never lost a fight and not wanted to fight the guy 10 minutes later. The UFC is pumping him up again, saying he wants to redeem himself and giving him all this credit for it. It’s like, dude, I’ve been obsessed with every fight I’ve ever lost. This is a gift for him to get it right away. He’s saying he’s obsessed? Welcome to my life, m—–f—–. That’s the game, and I’ve never gotten my losses back.
