Conor McGregor Responds to Critics and Nate Diaz in Instagram Statement

UFC 196: McGregor v Diaz

Much like Nate Diaz did during their main event on Saturday night, the critics came hard at Conor McGregor following his UFC 196 loss.  But the UFC featherweight champion was not about to lay there and just take it (like he was forced to do last night).

Rather, McGregor took to Instagram to fire back at his critics in a brief statement.  He also hinted at a possible rematch with Diaz down the road.

Here’s a transcript:

If your tired of me talking money, take a nap. I’ll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV and the gate. Still talking multi 7’s. Thank you to the true support and fuck the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. Its still steak for breakfast.

I’ve been here many times in my life in some form or another. I’ll eat it all and come back stronger.

Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy. When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter.

To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges. Never run from adversity. Face yourself head on.

Nate I will see you again.

And here’s the actual post:

I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed. I will never apologize for taking a shot. Shit happens. I’ll take this loss like a man. I will not shy away from it. I will not change who I am. If another champion goes up 2 weights let me know. If your tired of me talking money, take a nap. I’ll still be here when you wake up with the highest PPV and the gate. Still talking multi 7’s. Thank you to the true support and fuck the hate that came out of the woodwork. I love it all. Its still steak for breakfast. I’ve been here many times in my life in some form or another. I’ll eat it all and come back stronger. Aldo you are a pussy. Dos anjos you are a pussy. When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter. To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges. Never run from adversity. Face yourself head on. Nate I will see you again.
