When UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor had his first loss in the UFC against Nate Diaz at UFC 196, “The Notorious” was described as “obsessed” with getting a rematch to seek revenge.

At UFC 202, McGregor was able to do just that when he was awarded a majority decision win after a five-round war.

Now that McGregor has evened up the score with Diaz, the Stockton native says he is waiting to get a call from the UFC bosses on what he wants this time around.

“I’m still waiting for Dana [White] and Lorenzo [Fertitta] to show up to my house to see how obsessed I am,” Diaz told MMA Fighting about what his plans are for the future.

Diaz had gone on record before UFC 202 to say that he felt the UFC was trying to “weed” him out with setting up the rematch so quickly.
