At UFC 196, Conor McGregor jumped up two weight classes to fight Nate Diaz at welterweight after UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos withdrew from the bout with a broken foot.
While UFC President Dana White was under the impression that Diaz was training for a triathlon at the time he accepted the bout, Diaz admitted post-fight that was not the case.
“I think I’d like to see that. It’s one that interests me most certainly,” McGregor told TMZ Sports about a possible Diaz rematch. “You know when I look at the fight, I was winning the fight. I won the first round and a half.
“I’d love to get that one back. We’ll see. We’ll see how it goes. Life is good.”
“I’m real fresh. I’m ready to go again,” McGregor said. “It was a good fight. A hell of a fight. I look forward to coming back with a vengeance.”
Do you think we’ll see a rematch go down between McGregor and Diaz?
