Nate Diaz may have once again hinted at retirement after his UFC 244 loss to Jorge Masvidal, but he continues to be active on social media. During the UFC 246 broadcast on Saturday, the 34-year-old Stockton native launched a series of Twitter tirades, seemingly directed at headliners Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone.
“The Notorious” finished the fight inside 40 seconds via TKO, making a strong statement after a 15-month absence.

He even hit at former opponent Jorge Masvidal for the latter’s outfit of choice.

Diaz came out of a three-year self-imposed hiatus in 2019. He went on to face former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis at UFC 241 and won in dominant fashion via a unanimous decision verdict.
He went on to face Masvidal at UFC 244 three months later, where the two contended for the inaugural “baddest motherf—r” title. “Gamebred” ended up winning by third-round TKO as advised by the cageside doctor, marking Diaz’s second stoppage loss in his career.
