Ufc President Dana White Says He Would Be Surprised if Conor Mcgregor vs Nate Diaz 3 Never Happens
It would be "shocking" if Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz didn't fight for the third time ... even though the UFC superstar recently revealed he plans on fighting Dustin Poirier and then retiring.
"We're still working on [the Diaz-Poirier] fight. That fight's not done yet. I wouldn't count out a Conor-Nate 3," White told Babcock on the TMZ Sports.
Dana added ... "Listen, I'd be shocked if that fight didn't happen again."
McGregor vs. Diaz I and II were both incredible fights... starting with the trash talk leading up to the events to the knock-down-drag-out combat the men put on.
When Nate and Conor met for the first time in March 2016, Nate was the underdog, however he forced Conor to tap, submitting him with a rear-naked choke.
Later that year, White scheduled a rematch, and the two UFC superstars met once again in August. McGregor won by a majority decision this time (two judges gave McGregor the win, the third scored the fight a draw).
Even though it's been 5 and a half years since their last fight, almost everyone involved believed that the trilogy fight was just a matter of time.
Until 36-year-old Diaz told us recently that he only has one fight left on his UFC contract... and he plans to fight Poirier.
McGregor is still recovering from the broken leg he suffered against Dustin, so he is unlikely to fight until later in the year.
