Nate Diaz Wants Conor McGregor Rematch At Lightweight

6

Nate Diaz appeared on UFC Tonight Wednesday night to discuss his big win over McGregor a couple weeks ago, the money he has made, and the fame that he has gotten. A lot of rumors have been speculating that both Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will rematch in a headline fight at the highly-anticipated UFC 200 this summer.

The Stockton-product also says that he is more than open to a rematch with the Irishman. Despite reports suggesting that the fight would again be at 170 pounds (to McGregor’s satisfaction), Diaz proposed it to be a weight class lower.

“If there’s a second fight, whatever, ” Diaz said on UFC Tonight. I’ll fight at 155. I’d like to be in shape and be cut up and not have to hear it out of the fans and the people.”

The 30-year old seemed firm on his position to have the fight at 155-pounds. The UFC has not released anything yet on the proposed bout. Stay tuned to mmanews.com to hear the latest on this development.
