Diaz, who will take on "The Notorious" in a welterweight clash on Saturday, made the rounds on Twitter with his "touch-butt" comments, referring to McGregor's movement training with Portal.
"You're playing touch-butt with that dork in the park," Diaz said (h/t Damon Martin of FOX Sports). (The guy) with the ponytail and I'm the one who ain't got no training partners? I don't think so. You seem to have it all figured out when you're fighting midgets. You got (expletive)."

Many fans began to doubt the Irishman's mindset prior to the bout, but that didn't stop McGregor from KO'ing "Scarface" in just thirteen seconds to become the new featherweight champion.

Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz will headline the UFC 196 extravaganza on March 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
