Nate Diaz Responds To The Idea Of A Dream Third Fight In Conor McGregor Trilogy

Nate Diaz Responds To The Idea Of A Dream Third Fight In Conor McGregor Trilogy

Nate Diaz has teased that he would be open to completing his trilogy of fights with Conor McGregor -- but only if it "works into the schedule."

The 34-year-old UFC star made his sensational return at UFC 241 on Saturday and picked up a superb victory over Anthony Pettis.

And Diaz has refused to rule out a third fight with McGregor, 31, inside the octagon.

He said at the UFC 241 post-fight conference: "If that's something that works into the schedule.

"I'm going to fight the baddest dudes, the biggest, baddest shows that people want to see.

"That's what I want to see, that's what I want to do, so it's up to everybody that's involved in that.

"If they want it, they're going to call me and tell me they want it."

Diaz first fought against McGregor at UFC 196 in 2016 and picked up a stunning victory over the Irishman with a submission chokehold.

But the 'Notorious' would bounce back against Diaz in their second clash at UFC 202 and secured his win on points.

Diaz does have his eyes set on Jorge Masvidal and called out the UFC fighter after his clash with Pettis.

And Masvidal, 34, has admitted that he wants a blockbuster match with the American MMA star and has told UFC president Dana White to "open up the cheque book."

Diaz claims that he is not interested in picking fights based on money alone and is relishing the challenge of being back in the UFC.

He said: "I don't think they know how to do it.

"I don't think anybody knows how to do it, and everybody's beginners, scared or something.

"I don't want to be all full of myself and riding on a high horse and cocky and [expletive], but I got way too much money to be having to fight somebody that's not interesting."

Should Diaz take up a third fight against McGregor?

Let us know in the comments.
