Since the saga that had him removed from UFC 200, Conor McGregor has been really active on social media recently. He told the UFC to 'cut the bullshit' and give him a rematch with Diaz, claimed that he would've beaten the Mayweather vs Pacquiao PPV record if he was at UFC 200, and also went on to take a few shots at Nate as well.

McGregor continued with talking about a potential rematch with Diaz, posting a statement on instagram.

"Working the rear hand uppercut with Roddy prior to UFC 196. A shot I called pre fight," McGregor wrote about the photo of him from the open workout. "Who else can call a shot like the rear hand uppercut on a big 6 foot lurch and then go out and dig that baby repeatedly into the nose?"

"Anyone? Didn't think so."

"Mark my fucking words I am going to toy with him in the rematch. Believe that."

McGregor did land quite a few uppercuts during his main event bout. Unfortunately for the Irishman, none of them seemed to really faze Nate Diaz, and he went on to land better shots of his own en-route to an impressive short-notice victory.

As for the rematch, it's still not known if it would even happen, with Dana White repeatedly saying that the winner Jose Aldo vs Frankie Edgar is now next for him.
