If you follow MMA, you remember last year’s epic war of words between Irish fighter Conor McGregor and Stockton, Calif., native Nate Diaz. Before the fight, McGregor landed the best blows. During the fight, Diaz choked McGregor out and quieted him down for a bit. Although Nate Diaz’s defeat of Conor McGregor at UFC 196 silenced a lot of haters, some didn’t know when to keep their mouths shut.
After the match, Justin Bieber called out Diaz on social media, saying that he still thought Conor was the better fighter.

Here’s some life advice. Don’t ever call out a UFC fighter. You know the satisfying feeling you get when you pop bubble wrap? That’s how Diaz feels when he breaks bones. And you want to call this guy out?

As expected, the whole thing played out like a Taco Bell meal, which is to say the beef wasn’t entirely real. Diaz and Bieber ended up at a night club in LA, and both men — no strangers to publicity — took the opportunity to catch a photo with one another for their Instagram.

For now, the only person Diaz is concerned with is Conor McGregor, who he’s set to throw down with at UFC 202 on August 20.
