Former UFC star Nick Diaz is not happy with Conor McGregor’s recent antics on social media.
The former two-division champion quickly chimed in after pop sensation Justin Bieber called out veteran actor Tom Cruise for a clash in the Octagon.
McGregor took to Twitter and offered to host the celebrity match under the McGregor Sports and Entertainment.
“If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge,
McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout.
Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?
Stay tuned to find out!” the Irishman wrote.
Taking the madness to another level, ‘The Notorious’ made a follow-up tweet, this time saying he would fight Mark Wahlberg on the same card with Bieber and Cruise, with the UFC shares on the line.
“I challenge Mark Walhberg on the very same card.
Back when mark wahlberg was marky mark, I’d’ve still slapped the ears off him and took my ufc shares back.
#Shares #Streams #Dazn #Espn
McGregor Sports and Entertainment.”

Nick Sounds Off On Conor
Some MMA fans and pro fighters alike were dismayed with McGregor’s social media antics and his choice of opponents.
Former lightweight champion and now a top-five welterweight Rafael Dos Anjos was the first to throw a jab on the Irishman.
“If Tom don’t take You should take this one @TheNotoriousMMA at this point of your career you can’t keep up with real challengers,” RDA posted on Twitter.
On his Instagram stories, former Strikeforce champion, Diaz, also slammed McGregor as he continues to campaign for a fight against Wahlberg.
“Why would you wanna fight someone who cant fight ” Diaz said.
“What a peace (sic) of shit !! Same as beating someone with handcuffs on.”
Diaz has reportedly retired from MMA, ending his professional career with 26-9 (2) record.
McGregor, meanwhile, is training for his rumoured to return to action this July after completing his six-month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

McGregor Wants UFC Shares
It was not the first time McGregor challenged Wahlberg to a fight in an attempt to get a piece of the UFC pie.
Last April, he issued the same challenge, following his unexpected retirement from mixed martial arts.
He also vowed to smack him and his brothers, while throwing shade to Nurmagomedov and his team.
‘The Notorious’ has been demanding for UFC shares and will only take a co-main event slot if given the rights to company ownership.
“If the UFC wants me to slide into that co-main event slot and help, what that is, if I slide into the co-main event it’s boosting their brand over fighter rhetoric that they have.”
“There’s no problem with that.
