Watch: "He Lost To Little Irish Land Guineas" - Nick Diaz Tears Into Conor McGregor

A day after Conor McGregor learned of his punishment from the Nevada Athletic Commission for his involvement of the bottle-throwing incident that marred the UFC 202 press conference, the older brother of his former opponent has gone off on a rant as to why the Irishman "isn't great".

McGregor is preparing to face Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight title, for which his coach John Kavanagh today claimed he looks to be in the best shape he has been in for years, and that is something that clearly irks Nick Diaz.

Diaz was sitting in the octagon at Syndicate MMA while Nate Diaz hit pads, and he claimed that McGregor "isn't great at all" before listing his reasons for that opinion. Not only is Diaz unimpressed with the 145 pound fighters that McGregor defeated, but he also brought up two losses that McGregor carries with him from before his time in the UFC.


"Little Irish land guineas" was the term used to described Joseph Duffy and Artemij Sitenkov, both of whom hold a victory over McGregor on their record.

There's little chance of him letting that UFC 202 main event go, the Diaz brothers still maintain that Nate won the fight.

Still, they will have to wait for a third crack at McGregor, especially if the rumours that he is set to take a break from MMA are true, although we've heard some ridiculous rumours in the past 24 hours which should ensure that everybody approaches supposed Conor McGregor news with more caution.


Tell us how you really feel, Nick.
