UFC lightweight Nate Diaz hasn't stepped into the cage very often lately, but he's become quite proficient at sending out zingers to his fellow fighters via Twitter. The latest salvo from Diaz was directed at UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos and title challenger Donald Cerrone in regards to their verbal battles with Conor McGregor at the promotion's "Go Big" press conference last week.

At the media event, McGregor went after both men and pointed out that the lightweights aren't making a lot of money. He made it clear that both of them would love to fight him because they'd make a lot more cash than they would fighting anyone else in the "stick in the mud" lightweight division. Both men had responses, but they weren't up to snuff according to the man that has faced both guys in the Octagon:

Diaz (17-10, 12-8 UFC) defeated Cerrone by decision in late 2011, but lost to Dos Anjos in his last bout in December 2014. He will return to take on Michael Johnson at UFC on Fox 17 on December 19th, where RDA and Cerrone will meet for the 155-pound title in the headliner.
