'I'd Be Shocked If It Didn't Happen' - Dana White Teases Mega-Fight For Conor McGregor, It'd Be The Biggest Of His Career

​Dana White has teased a blockbuster showdown for Conor McGregor ahead of his highly-anticipated UFC return. 


​McGregor is closing in on his UFC return, with a super-fight almost guaranteed upon his Octagon comeback which is tentatively slated for the summer. 

He wants a UFC lightweight title shot against Charles Oliveira, with Michael Chandler wanting a piece of the 'Notorious' fighter. ​

One fight that continues to be associated with McGregor is Nate Diaz and White has talked up a potential trilogy bout.

He even said he'd be 'shocked' if McGregor vs. Diaz 3 didn't happen.

The UFC president told TMZ Sports: "We're still working on [the Diaz-Poirier] fight. That fight's not done yet. I wouldn't count out a Conor-Nate 3.

"Listen, I'd be shocked if that fight didn't happen again."

Of course, McGregor has had not one but TWO legendary wars with Diaz over the years. 

Diaz stunned the MMA world when he submitted McGregor at UFC 196, with the Irishman exacting revenge in a slug-fest a few months later at UFC 202.

The Stockton slugger has only had three bouts since his battles with McGregor in 2016.

He hasn't fought since his defeat to Leon Edwards last summer, with a fight against Dustin Poirier supposedly in the works.

As for McGregor, White hasn't ruled out a title fight for the 33-year-old. 

"We will see what's what with the lightweight division," he told The Underground. "It's going to depend on who the champion is when Conor McGregor comes back, they have a say in it. What do they want to do?

"If it's Oliveira who is still champion when Conor comes back, maybe Oliveira wants Conor we will see then.

"There are many variables for his return, number one his health and how his leg is.

"Once that is 100 per cent, we will start to figure out where he goes because we have fights up to June 18 already."
