Everyone in the MMA world has something to say about Khamzat Chimaev’s overweight and subsequent shuffling of the top three cards on the UFC 279 fight card.
Even former UFC double champion Conor McGregor talked about the mess.
First McGregor speaks to Diaz, who is fighting the last game of his contract.
“Congratulations to Nate Diaz for completing his contractual obligations with the UFC and becoming a true superstar spectator. Incredible feat. Fair play. Our trilogy will happen, ‘ he wrote on Twitter.
Our trilogy will happen. — Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) September 10, 2022
This duo is known for fighting each other, with each winning the other. Diaz’s victory was a nasty submission by then-undefeated McGregor, his first loss under the UFC banner. Both Diaz and McGregor have now agreed to the highly anticipated trilogy, but it looks like it may have to happen outside the UFC. .
“I think they should remove khamzat from the card completely,” he tweeted. “Reconfiguring the game and giving the losing cutter a more favorable one will only make many others in the game follow suit. A smirk on the scales is enough for me. Pulled from the card and starved. McG UFC.”
McGregor was clearly not happy with the way the UFC handled Chimaev’s 7.5-pound overweight. Wait until he hears that he hasn’t been fined either.
