Diaz 'not doing sh*t' until he meets McGregor again

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 conference.

"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 a six-pack."
