Nate Diaz Claims He Kicked Off ‘The Start Of The Superfight Era’

MMA news

August 20th marks the 5 year anniversary of Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor 2, the fourth biggest fight in UFC history. Turn the clock back to when it happened in 2016, and it was the biggest pay-per-view in UFC history, only eclipsed by Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor in 2018 and then the two Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier fights in 2021.

So it’s a pretty big deal.

To mark the occasion, Nate Diaz took to Instagram and humbly suggested he kicked off the super fight era. And you know what? He’s not really wrong on that.

“UFC 202 Diaz vs McGregor 2: The start of the super fight era,” Nate wrote. “You’re welcome Floyd, the Paul sisters and youtubers around the world. It’s a new day in age I told you I was changing the game, Ariel Helwani. I might not get the credit, but I’ll take the motherf—kin credit. Don’t forget before I fought Conor I was the biggest name he ever fought too.”

He also went on Twitter to claim the series with McGregor wasn’t really 1-1 as the official record stands.

To which McGregor responded:

We have no doubt that a third fight between the two would be huge, and might just be the perfect bout to finally hold after McGregor comes back from that bad leg break suffered against Dustin Poirier in July. What do you think, Maniacs? Any interest in a rubber match five years on?
