Nate Diaz Waiting To Meet With UFC Officials To Discuss McGregor Trilogy Bout


Nate Diaz is doing his best Conor McGregor imitation, sarcastically repeating the actions of the “The Notorious” one following their first fight at UFC 196 to try and get the same immediate rematch that the Irishman received when he was the one who came up short.

Diaz, who came up short in the rematch at UFC 202 last Saturday night, told, “I’m still waiting for Dana [White] and Lorenzo [Fertitta] to show up to my house to see how obsessed I am,” Diaz said.

The Stockton native is referencing the post-UFC 196 story of McGregor meeting with Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta to tell them he was “obsessed” with getting a rematch against Diaz after losing to him in their March showdown in the Octagon.

According to the MMA Fighting article, Diaz is waiting on a visit from UFC brass to discuss the potential trilogy fight. It’s worth noting, however, that White has been adamant in media appearances following Saturday’s event that he’s “moving on” from the McGregor-Diaz show for the time being, and even stated McGregor’s next fight will be his first 145-pound title defense or he will be stripped of the title.
