McGregor took to his Twitter account to criticize the staredown between Masvidal and Diaz.

“I’m sad they didn’t get to shake hands up there like they wanted to and tried to. It was so sad seeing this. It’s like a love story up there. OMG Its the notebook. Now get out that f*cking checkbook and donate to my charity and the real bad mans back.”

Masvidal and Diaz have shown respect towards one another throughout the buildup of their fight. It’s clear that both men are taking the approach of letting their actions do the talking.

McGregor has claimed that his next bout is on Jan. 18 in Las Vegas. While he didn’t reveal an opponent, UFC president Dana White said the promotion is looking at booking McGregor against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.
