Cape Town - There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Nate Diaz and Conor
McGregor will be involved in a third and final fight after the featherweight
champion evened the score at UFC 202 with a majority decision victory.
After the loss Diaz made it very clear that he will not
fight anyone else but McGregor for the third and final time.
"I'm not doing sh*t
until we go for round three," Diaz said at the event's post-fight press
"You won't be seeing me until then. If they want to set it up
as soon as possible, let's do it. But I don't think it's a very good business
move for him to be taking any other fights, and he's a businessman, so we'll
see what happens."
With McGregor on board the only real roadblock that this trilogy faces is UFC President Dana White who stated on Saturday during a
post fight interview that
the third fight would not happen anytime soon due to the fact that McGregor
needs to defend his 145-pound title.
Now should the third installment of this classic trilogy go
down it will be at a lighter weight after McGregor threw down that challenge
during his post fight interview, which Diaz later accepted.
"I've been a lightweight the whole
time," Diaz said. "I think I walked into the cage tonight probably at
177, 176, 175. F*ck, maybe lighter. So hell yeah, that's what I wanted this
fight at, so I could have a six-pack. You know you want to be in a picture with
