Will There Be a Mcgregor/Diaz 3? Dana White reveals his plan.
The two bouts between Mcgregor/Diaz gave us more excitement, water bottles thrown, F-Bombs, and middle fingers from anything we've seen from the UFC all year - but it looks like Dana White is closing the door on a possible third installment.
UFC President Dana White has said there will be no trilogy of fights between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz after noting he's "moving on."
Both fighters expressed an interest in a third match after McGregor's decision win against Diaz at UFC 202 on Saturday, but White told TMZ Sports: "The war was fun and super successful, but I'm movin' on."
"Yeah, um... We're definitely not doing this a third time right now. Um, I mean, I don't think there's anybody that doesn't want to see this fight again, but um, Conor's either gonna go defend his title or give his title up. Then we'll figure out where we go from there."
That just means Nate Diaz is going to be on the shelf for awhile, considering he doesn't want to fight anyone else.
“I’m not doing s**t until we go for round three. You won’t be seeing me until then,” Nate told reporters following the match on Saturday night. “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.”
“Nothing else interests me. Unless it costs a lot of money,” Nate clarified. “We’re gonna fight for a big payday, for a big situation. And no one out here is making a big enough of a big enough deal to fight. So when Conor’s ready to do his thing again, no rush, take your time. Go on vacation, we can do it as soon as he wants to set it up.”
I'm not surprised, Motherfuckers.
