Last month, Conor McGregor threw the ceremonial first pitch ahead of the Chicago Cubs night game against the Minnesota Twins at Wrigley Field. The pitch was so off the mark that it almost hit a fan sitting in the front row. Now it seems Nate Diaz also had something to say about his first pitch.
Fans and UFC stars alike relentlessly trolled McGregor’s horrible pitch. Some even compared it to 50 Cent’s terrible first pitch botch ahead of a New York Mets vs. Pittsburgh Pirate game at Citi Field in 2014. Conor McGregor was naturally livid at the comparison.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, Nate Diaz stated that he wants to throw the first pitch at a San Francisco Giants game in MLB. He also took the opportunity to clown Conor McGregor. Diaz claimed that he will throw a much better pitch than McGregor.
“I don’t know but if I do I’m going to hit the target.”
Conor McGregor has faced off against Nate Diaz on two occasions at UFC 196 and UFC 202. They both have one victory over the other. Many fans are wondering whether a third fight will happen between the two. We will have to wait and see when Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will duke it out in their third fight together in the future as the rivalry between the two is unlikely to end anytime soon.
