Nate Diaz hasn’t finished trolling Conor McGregor.
The Stockton, Calif. Native fought another round with the former champion in two divisions on Friday, with the latest volley kicked off by McGregor’s UFC tweet about the two new belts.
Let’s make two straps for real @ufc… Champion Champion always makes two. We are now creating the McGregor Belt, and now we have a completely new RMF belt.
“The richest bastard belt.”
Thus, we can find good use for both rubies and emeralds.

McGregor’s desire for the “McGregor Belt” sparked foul language from Diaz, his two-time opponent.
Diaz stuck to sarcasm this time.
@ufc come on and give this little bitch a belt or two with rubies or whatever he wants on it, I think he really needs it
I need his confidence, hello to do well, so make a belt if you like.
And go there and get a champion ..
