I hope we don’t see any provocation from McGregor - Khabib Nurmagomedov’s father

Well Diaz, the biggest rival of McGregor's career, was none too pleased regarding the lightweight title bout announcement.

In a video interview this week, the San Jose-based Nurmagomedov touted his belt and his dominance in pushing the UFC to properly pay him in accordance with McGregor, the organization's leading draw. They're bad mouthing me, saying I turned down fights.

McGregor was last seen inside the Octagon back in November 2016.

That led to charges for McGregor, who escaped a jail term and criminal record after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct, paving the way for the bout against Nurmagomedov. After he took a break to attend the birth of his son past year, he participated in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and earned a reported $100 million while losing by 10th-round technical knockout.

Nurmagomedov (26-0) proceeded to overwhelm Al Iaquinta in Brooklyn to capture the lightweight belt that the UFC had stripped from McGregor.

To add fuel to the fire, Diaz's scheduled opponent at UFC 230, Dustin Poirier, also hit the internet to express the similar sentiment of not taking part in the fight. Friday afternoon the UFC held a press conference in Los Angeles, California., among the attendees were the main event fighters for the next few months of upcoming events in 2018.

"It's time to go, so it's time to go", Diaz said.

Earlier in the news conference, the UFC also promoted the long-awaited return of Nate Diaz, who memorably split two bouts with McGregor in 2016. "This is going to be one of the greatest fights you've ever seen". Diaz openly questioned whether or not he would even fight Poirer.

McGregor himself has said recently that he would prefer to fight in Madison Square Gardens again, but conceded that he believed his next fight would be in Las Vegas.
