The best things come in threes, and it appears that will be the case with Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, too.
McGregor exacted his revenge over Diaz with a majority-decision win in the UFC 202 main event, which means the sport’s biggest rivalry now is tied 1-1.
Naturally, the attention after the bout immediately went to whether this rivalry will turn into a trilogy, and based on what the fighters said in the Octagon, it appears it will. However, McGregor hopes McGregor-Diaz 3 will have a bit of a twist in his favor.
Warning: there is explicit language in these videos.
No matter what the weight, a third fight needs to happen after that instant classic Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
