Last week reports emerged that the UFC had issued contracts to both Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz for a welterweight rematch at UFC 200. As everyone knows by now, Diaz submitted McGregor in the second round of their UFC 196 scrap to end McGregor’s unbeaten streak.
Unsurprisingly, talks of a potential rematch between the two quickly became the ‘hot topic’ in the MMA community, with fans and fighters alike giving their predictions for a rematch between the two.
In a recent interview, Nate Diaz stuck up for Jose Aldo when asked about the possibility of McGregor getting a rematch against Diaz at UFC 200. Aldo was knocked out at UFC 194 by McGregor in just 13 seconds, and has been campaigning for a question ever since.
The quote translates to:
“McGregor would you like a rematch with me…but Aldo did not have his.”
