McGregor teased a move to the UFC’s welterweight division for the highly awaited showdown against Nate Diaz. “Add 30lbs of muscle on to me” he tweeted. The reports of a potential third bout with Nate Diaz have been flying for quite some time now. It’s needless to say, that every time McGregor and Diaz make their way to a fight, they are always asked about the highly awaited trilogy bout.
Now, it looks like Conor McGregor has set his eyes on a potential trilogy bout, and from the looks of it, it looks like he wants it to take place in his home country of Ireland.
The incredible rivalry of Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz
The rivalry between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz is a result of chances. Had Rafael dos Anjos not pulled out of his highly anticipated championship bout against Conor McGregor, the bout would have never flown to the hands of Nate Diaz. What more? Nate Diaz submitting Conor McGregor at UFC 196 to create history continues to remain as one of the most impactful moments in the history of the division.
Going into the second bout, McGregor emerged victorious over the Stockton Slugger with a majority decision victory. In a five-round war, both McGregor and Diaz showed every bit of what it takes to be a fighter and put on a show for fight fans around the world.
The trilogy bout has definitely kept millions of fight fans on the edge of their seat, and should it take place, there’s no better news for fans of mixed martial arts than to see Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz battle it out inside the UFC Octagon once again.
However, only time will tell what lies ahead for both the fighters. Nate Diaz has been promoting a super-fight against Dustin Poirier next, while McGregor currently remains out of action due to leg injury.
