McGregor wants third Diaz fight


Conor McGregor wants to fight Nate Diaz a third time after defeating the American on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

McGregor, who was defeated by Diaz in March after he was choked out, admitted he wants to complete a trilogy of contests after winning by majority decision in their rematch.

The Notorious came through arguably his toughest fight after going the distance for the first time in the UFC and the Irish fighter wants to do it all again.

“Surprise, surprise, m***********s, 'The king is back," he said.

“I proved the class difference. It was a hell of a fight; he is a hell of a competitor. I dropped him in the third round but then he started loading up.

“It's 1-1, let's do it again. If you want this trilogy, it's on my terms. Come down to 155 and we'll do it.”

Diaz is open to the rematch and has stated he won’t fight anyone but McGregor and the Stockton fighter believes he won the fight.

“I thought I won that fight," he said. "They can't have a m**********r like me win, I'm too real for this.

“I want number three. I gave him number two. Let's go again. Good job today Conor but we going for three, for real. Until then I ain't coming back.”
