Nate Diaz had harsh words for Khabib Nurmagomedov on The MMA Hour today. Among them were jabs at his career, his UFC Hall of Fame induction, and the level of opposition he faced during his career.
Nate Diaz made an appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani. He dropped many bizarre statements, but today we look at what he had to say about former UFC Lightweight champion and now UFC Hall of Famer, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
"Khabib's a f****** little b**** too. You're a scared fighter and now you're in the Hall of Fame? You're a Hall of Famer? Whatever." - Nate Diaz on The MMA Hour
Khabib Nurmagomedov was inducted into the modern wing of the UFC Hall of Fame earlier this year for his accomplishments inside of the octagon. He was the UFC Lightweight champion from 2018-2021 until he officially retired with an undefeated record of 29-0. He defended his belt 3 times, tying the record in his division.
Diaz and Nurmagomedov have feuded for many years. It began in 2015 when Nate claimed to have slapped Nurmagomedov for making fun of him. Khabib later mentioned in an interview that Nate Diaz had turned down the offer to fight him 3 times as he was scared to face a strong wrestler. The two have been involved in verbal and social media scuffles ever since.
Now Diaz has once again taken shots at the former fighter, claiming that his Hall of Fame induction is a 'joke' and that the fighters he beat weren't good either.
"Who'd he beat for the title? He got Dustin Poirier, Justin Gaethje? They both been finished off the same way he beat them. You ain't no good."
Diaz's antics continue until after Nurmagomedov's retirement, where Khabib has stated may times that he wishes to be left alone.
