DC fired up over Nate Diaz’s dismissal of him, fires back with a Khabib story

In the midst of their ongoing social media feud, Nate Diaz recently referred to Daniel Cormier as a ‘b*tch’. Cormier then retaliated by referencing an old Khabib Nurmagomedov tale which sparked the curiosity of the mixed martial arts world.

In a recent upload on his YouTube channel, Cormier hinted that Diaz had shown interest in headlining UFC 306 on September 14, 2024. This event will be coinciding with Mexican Independence Day celebrations and marks the UFC’s first event at The Sphere in Las Vegas. Daniel Cormier hinted that the 38-year-old Diaz isn’t ready for a possible main event at UFC 306 because of his age and his record in the cage.

In swift retaliation, Diaz shared a tweet featuring a video containing a screenshot of Cormier being interviewed by Joe Rogan after his knockout loss to Jon Jones in their 2017 rematch. The video had an Eminem song playing in the background. Diaz posted the video and referred to DC as a ‘b**ch’ in the caption.

A former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion, Cormier responded with another YouTube video. He adamantly proclaimed that he’s ‘nobody’s b*tch’. Emphasizing his dual-division champion status, Cormier reminded viewers that Diaz has never won a UFC title.

Cormier is a close friend of American Kickboxing Academy member Khabib Nurmagomedov. He revisited a conversation he had with Khabib. Mockingly, Cormier recounted Khabib’s stance on Diaz’s numerous MMA defeats.

He said: “One time, I was talking to Khabib [Nurmagomedov]. And it was when Nate was coming at Khabib. And Khabib said something to the effect of, ‘This man has lost 12 or 13 fights in his career.’ He’s like, ‘Daniel, I can’t respond to this guy. I can’t take this guy serious. Because who loses to that many people?’ How can you call me ‘not a fighter’ when you have had those instances? What did I do? I fought the best.”

The MMA community has not remained silent on this feud. One YouTube commentator hinted at Diaz’s double-figure MMA losses, even citing his debut boxing defeat against YouTuber/boxer Jake Paul. One fan even boldly stated: “DC would break his a** like a pencil (#2)”

As the verbal feud continues, MMA fans eagerly anticipate what comes next.
