Conor McGregor Calls Out Diego Sanchez After Controversial UFC Win
Irish superstar Conor McGregor has bizarrely called out Diego Sanchez after his controversial DQ win over Michel Pereira.
Sanchez, 38, emerged victoriously on Friday thanks to his opponent hitting him with an illegal knee while he was downed.
And McGregor, who made his stunning UFC comeback last month, sent out a simple tweet to the American MMA fighter: "Conor McGregor Vs Diego Sanchez."
McGregor also retweeted a fan's mock-up announcement for the fight to take place at UFC's event in Dublin in August.
The 'Notorious' wasted no time in undoing his retweet, but that didn't stop eagle-eyed fans from screenshotting it.
Pereira dominated Sanchez during their fight and was en route to picking up a victory over the veteran UFC fighter.
But Sanchez would ultimately secure the win via DQ and improve his record to 30 wins and 12 losses.
Other pros flocked to Twitter and reacted to the controversial finish of Sanchez and Pereira's fight in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.
McGregor, 31, is eyeing up at least two more fights in 2020 as part of his sensational UFC return.
The UFC superstar has revealed that he is interested in fighting Jorge Masvidal, Tony Ferguson and fierce rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
But the 'Notorious' has also suggested that he wants to complete his trilogy of fights with rival Nate Diaz.
"Let's go, Nathan," he said. "Let's go, brother. [Fight] number three is always here. We're right here, Nathan."
UFC president Dana White has confirmed that the promotion wants to book McGregor's rematch with Khabib in late 2020.
"Khabib and Tony will fight in Brooklyn, and Conor will probably fight the winner," he told ESPN.
"Conor's talking about not wanting to wait that long, I don't know what else makes sense, but who knows with that kid.
"The reason everybody loves him so much is because he could say, 'You know what, I want to fight this guy now,' some other weight class or whatever. But he keeps it fun.
"Khabib will sit out after [Ramadan], so you'd be talking about the fall: September, October, November."
