Diego Sanchez and Conor McGregor exchange on Twitter again

UFC Featherweight, Conor McGregor, and UFC Lightweight, Diego Sanchez, have been feuding over twitter this month. In the first set of tweets, McGregor made fun of Diego’s Mexican heritage and said that he would end his career if they fought. Diego took the high road, simply stating that Conor has no class at all.

Yesterday, Diego took to twitter in hopes of getting his next fight:

After someone asked Diego why not Conor McGregor instead, Diego had this to say:

That tweet unleashed another barrage from McGregor:

Diego then called out McGregor:

McGregor was quick to respond that he is willing to fight, but on his own terms:

Diego wouldn’t back down from Conor:

Conor, never one to mince words, finished off the exchange with this tweet:

This is the second time in a span of a few weeks that these two have exchanged words on Twitter. Conor has fought both his UFC fights at Featherweight, but has previously fought at Lightweight before. With all the hype surrounding this fight, it is certainly plausible that the UFC would book it. I, however, find it unlikely considering that Diego wants to get back in the cage quicker than Conor will be healthy to do so.

Regardless if they ever fight, the two are certainly entertaining on Twitter. Could this be the birth of a new rivalry?
