Brendan Schaub Discusses Backstage Argument With Nate Diaz

Jon Jones

So now I won that, then I won the 155-pound title after that.

The brief video posted online showed the argument brewing between Schaub and Diaz in the aftermath of Mayweather earning a 10 round TKO victory against McGregor, who was making his professional boxing debut. Not to mention, reports McGregor took home $70M for the fight.

It seems Diaz may now get his wish, but McGregor has detailed the terms he will accept the fight on.

"I'm the 155 pound champion (70kg)", McGregor told BBC News. This is the part I left out, this is what triggered him.

"Now I'm the 155 pound champion, now if he wants that fight, he must come down - that's a fair trade". The lightweight, who's gone 1-1 against McGregor in the UFC, has been touted as a logical matchup for the champ upon his octagon return. I didnt ask for the rematch at a lower weight, I asked for the rematch at the exact same weight.

Nate Diaz
GETTY Schaub got into a heated discussion with Nate Diaz after Mayweather vs McGregor

Former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub didn´t want any trouble from Nate Diaz when he ran into him backstage at the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight on Saturday night.

Schaub told the Joe Rogan podcast that he approached Diaz backstage to offer him advice in his quest for a third fight with McGregor, but it all went pear shaped. "That should be the sell, I was going to go talk to him about this".

I suppose, when considering the UFC's more recent emphasis on securing "big-money fights" - sometimes in favour of the ones that make sense - why not set these two up for a showdown at December's UFC 218?

I was going towards him because he looked busy, and whether he wanted my help or not I figured I'd I know a few things about marketing, the next fight for him is Conor. That should be the next fight, Conor versus Nate Diaz 3, the trilogy, that's the fight. He won rounds against the best boxer of all time.' Then Nate's like, 'He didn't win rounds. That should be the sell. You're next. Biggest fight in UFC history brother.' And he starts laughing. How (expletive) stupid do you look now?' I'm like, 'What?' He's like, 'How stupid do you look, talking all this (expletive)?' I'm like, 'Wow, wow - what are you doing right now? He's like how stupid do you look talking all this s-t and I'm like whoa, what are you doing right now? He gave him one round.' 'Alright, man. "What the hell are you doing right now?" Sure, it's easy for fans to get heated in debates with each other about scoring, who did what, and the ins-and-outs of a fight we have a lot of emotional stake in, however, even the fighters in attendance and those working the event aren't immune to these types of altercations.

It's classic Nate Diaz, but if Stockton's finest really isn't interested in a third fight McGregor, then what is he waiting for?
