While we are nearly 24 hours away from UFC 200, the MMA community can’t get enough of Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz after their UFC 202 press conference on Thursday afternoon.

During the course of the presser, McGregor explained that a win for him on August 20th likely sets up a trilogy fight between the pair given that Diaz won the pair’s first meeting at UFC 196.

“I feel we’ll enter into a trilogy. Why not? It was a great fight the last time, I really enjoyed it.”

“So yeah, I’ll correct that win, I’ll reclaim this (featherweight world title), let all those featherweights know who are praying that I don’t come back. I don’t understand how they can even say I’m not coming back, like I’ve missed weight before. I’ve never missed weight in my life.”

“I’ll beat Nate, get that win back, dominate my division again, and then we’ll re-talk with the trilogy fight with Nate.”
