If you saw the UFC on FOX 17 event from Orlando over the weekend, you witnessed Nate Diaz return for the first time in over a year to win a unanimous decision over No. 6 ranked Michael Johnson. After the fight the Stockton brawler called out newly-crowned featherweight champ, Conor McGregor, who has talked about moving up to the 155-pound division for a run at that title as well.
“Conor McGregor, you’re taking everything I worked for motherfucker,” stated Diaz. “I’m gonna fight your fucking ass. You know what’s the real fight and the real money fight, it’s me, not these clowns you already punked at the press conference. Don’t no one want to see that and you know you done beat them already. That’s an easy fight. You want that real shit, right here.”
Because the fights were on FOX, they censored Nate’s cuss-filled callout, but thankfully we have the full unedited clip for you right here.
UFC lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos also called out Conor Saturday night after beating Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone via TKO in just 66-seconds in the main event. … Conor later posted a response to Diaz, dos Anjos and all the rest..

Apparently the UFC has informed Nate Diaz they want this fight between he and McGregor, but what do you think, would you rather see Conor fight dos Anjos next for the lightweight title, or would you prefer all the epicness that would come with a Nate Diaz matchup? Sound off in the comments.
