Conor McGregor Calls Out Nate Diaz – Fight In The Near Future?

David Hookstead | Contributor

Conor McGregor hasn’t wasted anytime before greasing the wheels for another fight against Nate Diaz.

McGregor spoke with the BBC about Diaz, and made it crystal clear he’s ready to fight. Of course, Diaz will have to meet some conditions.

McGregor said the following:

I faced him at 170 pounds, he beat me, I rematched him at 170 pounds, I beat him. Now I’m the 155 pound champion, now if he wants that fight, he must come down — that’s a fair trade. I didn’t ask for the rematch at a lower weight, I asked for it at the exact same weight. I thought that was a fair play move on my behalf and I came in and I won. So now I won that and I won the 155 pound title after that, so if he wants the fight he has to make the 155 pound limit.

WATCH:

McGregor recently got defeated in the ring by Floyd Mayweather, but he clearly isn’t taking a lot of time away from fighting.

I think I speak for all the UFC fans when I say it’d be awesome to get a fight between Diaz and McGregor in the next six months.
