Paul, a YouTube sensation-turned-professional boxer, took aim at former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor with a callout Monday in a profanity-laced video in which he insulted McGregor’s fiancee, Dee Devlin, among other personal shots during the tirade.
That apparently didn’t sit well with Diaz, who took to Twitter to deliver a stern message to Paul for “talking like that.”

Paul originally called out Mcgregor and his teammate, Bellator fighter Dillon Danis, after he knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson in the co-main event of last month’s Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. pay-per-view. Since then, Paul has talked a big game and garnered callouts from throughout the sports world. His brother, Logan, is slated to fight Floyd Mayweather in a boxing exhibition.
Paul’s callout of McGregor on Monday included a claim of a $50 million offer for them to have a boxing match.
Diaz, a former rival of McGregor’s after splitting two prior UFC fights, is clearly having none of it.
