McGregor and Diaz were involved in a heated Twitter spat after the Irishman called on his UFC rival to sign the contract for a third fight.

"Shut your eye lid and sign the contract," McGregor wrote in reply to Diaz telling him to shut up.

Their social media exchange fueled talk of a rubber match, but the UFC president dismissed the idea of McGregor vs. Diaz III.

"No," White said when asked if a third clash was in the works between the two UFC superstars during the UFC 249 post-fight press conference.

He added: "Um... I mean, they don't like each other. But there's nothing going on.

"Conor wants to fight. I don't even know if Nate wants to fight. I think they're just talking s**t to each other."

McGregor has been linked with a fight against Diaz as he eyes a July return. But his UFC return depends on the safety measures amid the coronavirus crisis.

The 31-year-old's manager, Audie Attar, told ESPN that 'The Notorious' has been training and staying in shape ahead of a UFC fight.

"Conor is very curious to see whether the health and safety of the athletes and staff are ensured," he said. "He wants to make sure everyone is taken care of properly."

Attar added: "While Conor's desire would be to fight in front of another sold-out crowd. He does understand what him fighting in an empty arena could do for people at home and would consider if he is comfortable with the way the UFC is holding these events from a health and safety standpoint."
