At UFC 196, Conor McGregor jumped up two weight classes to fight Nate Diaz at welterweight after UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos withdrew from the bout with a broken foot.
While UFC President Dana White was under the impression that Diaz was training for a triathlon at the time he accepted the bout, Diaz admitted post-fight that was not the case.
“I THINK I’D LIKE TO SEE THAT. IT’S ONE THAT INTERESTS ME MOST CERTAINLY,” MCGREGOR TOLD TMZ SPORTS ABOUT A POSSIBLE DIAZ REMATCH. “YOU KNOW WHEN I LOOK AT THE FIGHT, I WAS WINNING THE FIGHT. I WON THE FIRST ROUND AND A HALF.
“I’D LOVE TO GET THAT ONE BACK. WE’LL SEE. WE’LL SEE HOW IT GOES. LIFE IS GOOD.”
“I’M REAL FRESH. I’M READY TO GO AGAIN,” MCGREGOR SAID. “IT WAS A GOOD FIGHT. A HELL OF A FIGHT. I LOOK FORWARD TO COMING BACK WITH A VENGEANCE.”
Do you think we’ll see a rematch go down between McGregor and Diaz?
