Pictured: Mayweather looks back at Andre Berto's corner after the sixth round of their welterweight title fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 12, 2015 in Las Vegas.

"I don't want a fucking third fight", Diaz told Ariel Helwani on Wednesday's episode of the MMA Hour.

"Conor is a f*cking bitch". "He f*****g got his a** whooped, he got choked". McGregor is expected to get back to UFC after his fight against Mayweather and the Irishman might already have an opponent ready to face him. "That part has happened [between McGregor and Mayweather], so I think the real question - and it's sort of a black box right now - is where's the UFC really, on this?" Every single fight, no matter who I fight. You don't like to fight. "You know when somebody is being a little bitch", he added.

On a rubber match against Conor McGregor: "I don't want it I don't need it, I already did my thing". Instead of pumping himself up and bragging about his abilities like he usually does, Mayweather spent five minutes actually selling McGregor. Today, Mayweather is now listed at -900, with McGregor +700. Diaz said he initially accepted the fight, but it fell through due to certain "circumstances" he demanded.

Diaz got a random call from Mayweather earlier this year.

The two athletes have been trading words in the press for over a year.

McGregor, who defeated Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 last November to become the first two-division champion in UFC history, has the gold and the distinction of being the most popular fighter in mixed martial arts.

Undefeated Floyd, 40, insisted he respects his younger UFC rival, but taunted his earning power in an interview this week.

"The UFC has nothing to do with the decision or outcome of fights".

The former friends and sparring partners will face each other for the women's strawweight championship at UFC 211 on May 13 in Dallas, Texas. Is that a good word?

Myself and @sbgcharlestown have been working together on unrestricted, unarmed fighting, since we are kids. We'll keep offering the Diaz brothers fights until one of them says yes or they [decide to] never fight again. And people really don't understand that because we also throw punches, but it's just different. Am I willing to fight? Jessica is a very risky opponent.
