CONOR McGREGOR and Nate Diaz started an X-rated Twitter spat with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier both dragged into the row.
The Notorious, who is 1-1 with Diaz following their series in 2016, re-posted a video before their first fight in 2016 where he called for 'The McGregor belt'.
A fan then responded by pointing out the UFC actually created a custom 'Baddest Mother F***er' title for Diaz first.
But Jorge Masvidal, 36, went on to win the BMF strap in November 2019, after Diaz, 35, was pulled out with a gruesome cut after round three.
McGregor, 32, tweeted: "Isn’t that crazy! Who’s the real bad motherf***er anyway ?
"Went up two weight divisions on a weeks notice to fight him for that fight. No hesitation. Straight onto my jet. In thru the side door. Surprise, surprise."
Diaz then referenced his 2010 fight with Rory Markham, where he filled in on short notice, in response to McGregor.
And he warned his rival to focus on rematching Dustin Poirier, having been knocked out by the American in January.
But the McGregor hit back: "What in the Facebook prelims is this s*** ? Who the f*** is Rory Mark ham ? 177?
"And don’t worry on my next fight bro. You and your face know what I’m like when I go again with it."

Diaz also brought up a 2015 brawl his entourage had with Khabib's at a World Series of Fighting show.
He posted: "Don’t forget Dustin f***ed u up But he’s scared of me.
"You are both some b****es And I slapped kabob he was scared with no counter And he owned you so who’s the real king Me bitch that’s who.
"King Nate dog."
McGregor, who was beaten by Nurmagomedov, replied with a picture of Khabib during his infamous bus attack in April 2018 in New York.
He wrote: "I forget nothing bro and you’ll see that soon enough.
"And don’t talk to me about a little slap in a scuffle I had them all trapped thinking they were dead.
"You’re the king of nothing. You couldn’t even win your own belt they made for you, let alone any other."
The trilogy between the great rivals has eluded fans since their epic August 2016 rematch.
McGregor faces Poirier, 32, in a trilogy of his own, likely in July, while Diaz makes his return at UFC 262 in May.
The veteran fights Brit Leon Edwards, 29, in the UFC's first ever five-round co-main event.
