Nate Diaz threw a wild accusation that Conor McGregor and every other fighter use’s steroids in the UFC.
“Everybody is on steroids,” Diaz said at the press conference. “The whole UFC.”
McGregor did not take the accusation lightly and reminded Nate Diaz that his teammates Gilbert Melendez and Jake Shields were caught for PED use.
“I’m not on no steroids,” McGregor said. “What the [expletive] are you talking about? Your two teammates were on steroids.”
Diaz did not respond to what McGregor said about Melendez and Shields but was firm about his stance that McGregor was on steroids.
Dana White later said to TMZ that Diaz was wrong and the UFC has the best anti-doping program in sports. The UFC president said that fighters would be caught if anyone was using PEDs. UFC 196 is slated to take place March 5th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
