UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is currently in training for an upcoming super fight against Floyd Mayweather.
Once his bout with Mayweather is in the books, the UFC Lightweight Champion may pursue a third fight with Nate Diaz.
“There’s a few of them in the mix,” McGregor said at a media scrum. “A few of them need to pull their (expletive) together, though, and get interest going and get me interested. Right now I don’t actually see anything. That Diaz trilogy is also on my mind.”
Diaz won the initial meeting between the two by submission at UFC 196, while McGregor earned a decision win in the rematch at UFC 202.
McGregor also thinks that Diaz should be thankful for their rivalry, because it has turned the Stockton native into a millionaire.
“He should really be thankful,” McGregor said. “Before he fought me he was (getting paid) 20,000 to show and 20,000 to win. His 19th fight in the UFC, and he was on 40 grand. Now he’s a multi-millionaire. So, I don’t know why he’s sitting there so bitter. Maybe them smacks he took in that rematch messed with his head a little bit. I hope not, but I think they did.”
The Stockton native hasn’t fought since UFC 202 and UFC President Dana White doesn’t believe that he’ll be returning to the Octagon ever again.
