On Sunday, former prime minister adviser Dominic Cummings reached out to Nate Diaz on Twitter to give some financial advice. Cummings particularly urged Diaz to not sign a new contract with the UFC and instead try his luck at an outside organization where he can potentially earn more money.

Cummings also used former two-division champion Georges St-Pierre as an example and how the UFC “screwed” him into his current situation where he’s still bound by a contract.

That piece of news caught the attention of shelved UFC superstar Conor McGregor, who then decided to remind Diaz about their little history.

The 36-year-old Diaz did experience a massive stock boost after his UFC 196 win over McGregor in 2016. His superstar status was solidified from then on, with the UFC establishing new title belts and special rulesets for him.

Diaz last fought at UFC 263 against Leon Edwards and lost via decision.
