Dustin Poirier, who Diaz is scheduled to fight at UFC 230 on November 3 at Madison Square Garden, jokingly chimed in with a similar tweet, writing, "I ain't fighting on that show either F the ufc".
The bout, which will take place at UFC 229, is already being talked about as one of the fights of the year and promotional video for the fight has broken the internet in predictable style.
McGregor first laid the groundwork for his fight against Nurmagomedov back in April when he attacked a bus full of UFC fighters, including the Lightweight champ, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

McGregor and Nurmagomedov weren't at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles along with the other headlining fighters of the autumn cards, but the announcement of their bout set off wild cheering among the fans.

White didn't disclose terms of the deal that was reached.
In a video interview this week, the San Jose-based Nurmagomedov touted his belt and his dominance in pushing the UFC to properly pay him in accordance with McGregor, the organization's leading draw.
In an interview with TMZ, Diaz said the lawsuit was settled a month ago and criticized the UFC for their lack of promotion.
The 30-year-old Irishman now has his sights set on winning the lightweight belt for a second time in just his second fight in the division in front of what will undoubtedly be a full crowd. But it seems time and no lack of contrition from McGregor has softened the UFC president's stance as he told ESPN: "Conor came and did what he did and didn't expect the results that happened".
