As far as his mixed martial arts career is concerned, McGregor has not competed inside the octagon ever since his 40 seconds obliterating knockout of Donald Cerrone when he returned early this year at Welterweight. McGregor would later call retirement, closing the doors of a potential Nate Diaz trilogy and Khabib Nurmagomedov rematch. However, McGregor has called retirement in the past and fight fans believe that Conor McGregor would eventually return to the octagon.
Recently, McGregor called out both the Diaz brother as he captioned, “Line them up” after Nate Diaz posted a photo with his elder brother Nick Diaz. Fight fans have been speculating a super showdown between Conor McGregor and Nick Diaz ever since the reports surfaced that Nick Diaz is looking at making ane early 2021 return to the octagon.
