UFC superstar Nate Diaz has shared a clip of him slapping Conor McGregor during their second fight at UFC 202

One of Nate Diaz’s offense of choice inside the octagon is his ‘Stockton Slap’ that he uses to humiliate and demean his opponents. Ever since the Oscar controversy surrounding Will Smith slapping Chris Rock on stage, several videos of Diaz slapping his opponents and UFC boss Dana White have been floating on the internet.

Nate Diaz shares a hilarious GIF of his infamous 'Stockton Slap' to Conor McGregor 2

In the words of the Stockton slugger, ‘Sometimes you got to slap some people to remind them where they at’. The slap is a street-move that Diaz manages to use effectively during fights. Although it does not amount to any significant damage, it still messes up your morale and knocks the stuffing out of fighters.

Nate Diaz fought Conor Mcgregor for the second time at UFC 202 in one of the biggest fights in the promotion’s history. Although he got battered in the initial rounds, Diaz bounced back like he usually does, and took the fight to McGregor. He slapped McGregor on multiple occasions trying to rattle him away from his game-plan. The ‘Notorious’ one maintained his composure as he took home a majority decision victory.

Diaz and ‘The Irishman’ have gone on several Twitter exchanges, most recently when McGregor got in trouble for over-speeding. Nate posted a GIF of him slapping a dwarf-sized Conor, trying to mock the Irishman.

“Trying get on this card in April” – Nate Diaz hints at a potential move to Bellator amidst contract renewal rumors

Looks like Stockton MMA star Nate Diaz has made up his mind to leave the UFC and test the free agency waters. UFC president Dana White had earlier last month hinted that the organization will probably work on a revised contract with the younger Diaz brother.

Nate Diaz last stepped inside the octagon at UFC 263 against Leon Edwards and almost grabbed victory from the loss clutches, after being dominated for four and a half rounds.

Former UFC fighter Yancy Madeiros, a longtime friend and training partner of Diaz, made his switch to Bellator after the UFC cut him from the roaster. Yancy had previously done several camps at Stockton in the Nick Diaz Academy.

Bellator 279 is scheduled to be held in April in Hawaii, where hometown favorite Yancy will compete against Emmanuel Sanchez. Nate Diaz posted a tweet expressing his desire to fight on the card, and teasing the current contract situation with the UFC.

He captioned the tweet,

‘I m tryin get on this @BellatorMMA card in April wit my boy @ymedeiros in Hawaii
Wasup wit @BellatorMMA 😎’
