The pair share one of the most iconic UFC rivalries of all time with the score tied at one apiece after their classic two-fight series.

But despite the bad blood, McGregor still backed Diaz to beat Jorge Masvidal in their boxing rematch.

The Irishman lumped on £390,000 and won back £1.2m after Diaz beat Masvidal on points.

Diaz was told about McGregor’s wager and subsequent winnings at the press conference but he just replied: “That’s cool.”

Laughter broke out in the room as McGregor later posted: “I make ya so much money you can swim in it!”

Diaz, 39, famously became the first to beat McGregor, 35, in the UFC with a submission win in March 2016.

But he lost the rematch five years later and a trilogy bout has since failed to materialise.

Meanwhile, Diaz has crossed over to boxing and lost his debut to YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul in August 2023.

But he bounced back with victory over Masvidal, 39, who had won their initial 2019 fight.

In the aftermath, Diaz called out Paul, 27, to a rematch as well as UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards, 32, who beat him in 2021.

Diaz said: “I’m gonna beat Jake Paul’s f***ing ass. I’m down to fight the highest-ranked boxer that I can find.


“My main objective has always been to be the best fighter in the world so I want to go back and get the UFC title.

“Leon Edwards, Jake Paul and anybody the f*** else, you’re dead.”
