Nate Diaz Accuses Conor McGregor Of Being On Steroids At UFC 196 Press Conference. Watch The Entertaining, Trash Talking Highlights (Video)

Video After The Jump

On Tuesday, February 23, UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos had to pull out of his March 5th fight against Conor McGregor.

The organization moved quickly to find a replacement. Nate Diaz stepped up with 10 days notice to take the fight, which will be a non-title bout held at 170 lbs.

At today's press conference the two engaged in an epic war of words.

McGregor called Diaz a "cholo gangsta from the hood" and mocked his side job as a kid's jiu-jitsu coach.

"He makes gun signs with the right hand and animal balloons with the left hand," McGregor said.

Diaz responded by accusing his opponent and every other fighter in the UFC of being on steroids.

"Everybody's on steroids ... the whole UFC. You, dos Anjos, [Anthony] Pettis," Diaz told McGregor.

The Irishman fired back by reminding Nate that his teammates Jake Shields and Gilbert Melendez had both been suspended for failed drugged tests in the past.

"You're on steroids," Nate repeated a second time.

McGregor vehemently denied the accusation. For the record he has never failed a drug test.

Meanwhile, dos Anjos tweeted out a photo of his broken foot and wondered why McGregor picked Diaz, who might not be in tip top shape for the fight instead of Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, who has had two fights in the last three months and is guaranteed to be in shape.

The same thing happened last year when Jose Aldo pulled out of a fight. McGregor instead fought and easily defeated Chad Mendez, who stepped in on short notice.

To The Notorious One's credit he eventually did eventually fight Aldo, once the Brazilian healed from a rib injury. He knocked him out in 13 seconds to win the Featherweight Championship at UFC 194.

We'll find out what happens when Diaz and McGregor meet on March 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, should be a great show.

Holly Holm vs. Meisha Tate is the co-main event.

Floyd was right, Connor does the same thing he did but it is looked at differently and I like both of them but I am just keeping it real.

@George - I don't trust that bald piece of sh*t named Dana White, but I really doubt he'd tell RDA to go injure himself to set up an alternate opponent for Conor. That's some Alex Jones Black Helicopters coming to take everyone to FEMA Camps conspiracy theory tinfoil hat sh*t. @Marcus Young - McGregor got a title shot by beating a guy outside Top 10 in 145lbs (Siver). He beat Mendes who only had 10 days to train for him due to Aldo injuring himself in training. His KO over Aldo can look like rigged/staged fight for an uninformed person, but it's obvious Conor was inside Aldo's head and f*cked him up mentally with all that trash talk by the time the fight came by, Aldo got caught. Conor's at the same stage now as he has to face another guy less than 2 weeks away of training, but at least this time he's not fighting and I quote in Conor's own words a "midget". Nate even called him out on that, beat 3 "midgets" in a row and he's the sh*t. Conor's gonna win it, but I'd like to see Nate Diaz shock the world and sub his overrated a**.

Mcgregor is Dana only cash cow now. He's not gonna let that go he has nothing else. Aldo lost in like 5 seconds by doin some other s***. Yeah ok. Mcgregor fought some dude who only had 10 days notice. Gtfoh. Mcgregor is trash. Like who has he fought?
Comment by Marcus Young on February 25, 2016 at 12:13pm
So he has fought only bums and the only good fighter he fought threw the fight? Explain that?
Comment by Swift-o on February 25, 2016 at 11:35am
F*** mcgregor. He fought nobody but bums. That aldo fight was set up. He got paid to take the fall. Just like silva did.

DIaz gone get hurt
Comment by George on February 25, 2016 at 1:10am
Dana white is a brilliant marketer. Have dos anjos fake an injury so mcgregor gets a cakewalk first fight and then build more hype for the tile fight. Genius
Comment by F***THEWORLD on February 25, 2016 at 12:49am
McGregot can talk s*** cuz he's been on a Winning streak. Nick is just trying to psych him out, his brother can even stop smoking weed to save his life LOL.
