Nate Diaz has branded Dustin Poirier a “lil b****” after accusing the UFC of bending to Conor McGregor.
It comes after the Dubliner was granted his wish of an immediate trilogy fight against Poiirier.
But Diaz is furious, believing it is soft from the UFC and Dana White to cave in so quickly.
McGregor was handed a damaging defeat by Poirier at UFC 257 but is keen to jump straight back into the Octagon.
The bout saw the American knock Notorious out in the second round while also keeping up a barrage of deadly kicks to his calf.
It was revenge for the Diamond, who lost to McGregor back in 2014.
And he is happy to take the Irishman back on, with any fight with him proving beneficial for their pockets.
White is more than happy to arrange a trilogy clash, insisting sometime in the summer could be a potential date.
“When you have two guys that are in their positions — Dustin is the No. 1 ranked guy in the world, you got Conor who is ranked No. 6, and they want the trilogy, you got to go with the trilogy,” White said. “We’re probably going to try to put that fight together this summer.
“If you look at Conor, if you look at the way he fought, the leg kicks that he was eating, the stance he was in, he was completely overlooking Dustin Poirier.
“I’m not taking anything away from Poirier, but when you pull in on a super yacht (in Abu Dhabi) and you’re living the life that Conor lives, you need to be hungry and you need to take every guy serious.
“It doesn’t matter how you beat Dustin Poirier the first time, that’s not the same guy you are going to be facing and obviously Dustin Poirier is training like it’s the most important fight of his life.
“There were a lot of things lined up there for the upset. I guess the good part is the trilogy McGregor is hungrier that he’s ever been, he wants this fight back, he wants this fight badly so it will be a fun third fight.”
But Diaz was furious and broke his silence on Instagram, where he called Poirier a ‘lil b****’.

Referring to the photo, that was between Diaz and McGregor which saw the Stockton Slugger force his opponent into submission.
