0

While the excitement level is certainly at a high level for the new UFC 196 main event featuring the press conference on Wednesday with Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, fans might be interested to learn that Nick Diaz and McGregor have expressed interest in fighting each other as well.

Diaz spoke with Fight Hub TV after the UFC 196 press conference on Wednesday and revealed that he has interest in fighting the Irish champion as well.

“I’m f*cking ready to go, bro,” Diaz said. “I’m ready to go today. They said 170 [pounds], what the f*ck?”

For his part, McGregor isn’t shying away from a fight with the elder Diaz.

“I certainly did ask when Nick’s ban is up,” McGregor told FOX Sports Live. “He’s still banned so either or is good for me. Maybe somewhere down the line I’ll probably contest against both, I feel.”
