"Obviously, I have history with Nate Diaz, we are set to have the trilogy bout. We'll see how that one goes, I feel Nate will get the better of that one and then we will contest the trilogy bout.
"Then I will seek the Moscow bout and it will be against the winner of Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurm...Nurmagomedov...I can't even say the guy's name...who gives a f*ck what the guy's name is, but that is the bout that we want. We want this bout in Moscow, the people of Russia deserve this bout to take place, the people of the world deserve this bout to take place. It is an inevitable rematch.
"It is a rematch that I will come in sharp, fresh [for]. I will have no injuries, I will have no alcohol, I will have no outside influences and I will be fully focused...exactly what the people deserve, exactly what the fans deserve and we will settle it once and for all."
