Conor McGregor brands Nate Diaz a 'cockroach' and brags about his UFC bloodbath win over rival
CONOR MCGREGOR has renewed his feud with fellow UFC star Nate Diaz, branding his bitter rival a 'cockroach'.
The Irishman lit the blue touch paper earlier this week by tweeting a snap of himself facing off with the Ultimate Fighter season five winner.
McGregor's accompanying caption read: "Now add 30lbs of muscle on to me and say ding ding in a Dublin accent."
Diaz was quick to respond, saying: "Bruh u can't walk or fight right now why you talking s**t? We talk later."
A fired-up McGregor replied: "Who can't? Come thru and see you little skinny fool you be smacked up and rolled up you bum. Cali is mine."
Diaz, 36, then proceeded to mock McGregor's broken leg, saying: "Nah b***h u should've learned how to not break ur leg when I checked ur s**t and u crutched outta the fight with me.
"And how u gonna fight me when u can't run for your life this time with your broken ass?
"You lost the last fight and ran for the hills just like Kabob. Ur a p***y too."

The pair continued to go back and forth, with Diaz eventually slamming McGregor for not returning to Ireland.
An irate Notorious then said: "Little cockroach Diaz brother. It's 3 on the street grab the heat."
After seeing McGregor mock his callout of Vincente Luque, fan favourite Diaz said: "I ended this guy's career lol. What happened to him?
"Get back here u need some help and why u just throw your friends away s**thead."
McGregor eventually signed off the lengthy exchange by tweeting: "F**k the whole city. I am (gorilla emoji) #bye."
McGregor and Diaz took part in two of the most memorable fights in UFC history in 2016.
Former lightweight title challenger Diaz won the pair's first meeting at UFC 196, submitting McGregor in the second round of their welterweight showdown.
McGregor exacted revenge on the Californian five months later at UFC 202, edging a five-round war via majority decision.
A trilogy fight is high on many fans' wishlists, and McGregor is all too happy to share the cage with his arch-nemesis again.
In January, the Dubliner told The MacLife: "I'd love to compete against Diaz. We will compete again.
"If it happens at lightweight for a title, that would be something special, also.
"There's many great options that are in the works, and let's see what happens. I am ready.
"I think if he's going to come down to 155, he should come down for me, to be honest with you.
"I hear maybe giving him a shot in there, but Nate's a warrior, Nate's a goer. Nate shows up, steps up, and fights.
"It's not necessary. I feel to have him fight at 155 against another contender. I feel maybe it should be me and Nate. If he's going to do 155, we could possibly do that for the belt.
"If not, I'd probably just fight Nate at 170 pounds again. Reason being, we fought at 170 twice. Why mix it up for the trilogy?
"If there's belts and titles and loftier things on the line for certain, a 155-pound challenge with Nate would be something.
"Many great fights and many great options, and I'm very excited about every single one of them."
Both McGregor and Diaz are currently riding two-fight losing streaks, with the former having suffered back-to-back defeats to Dustin Poirier and the latter having lost to Leon Edwards and Jorge Masvidal.
